Pico-ITXe Module Creates Platform for Next-Generation Fleet Management
Page 1 of 1
A new technology platform is initially targeted for fleet management device designs. The EPIA-P710-D from Via Technologies is a Pico-ITXe expansion module that allows system integrators to easily create cutting-edge fleet management devices that incorporate a range of the latest communication and intelligent management technologies.
Measuring only 10 cm x 7.2 cm for easy integration into the dashboard of any vehicle, the Via EPIA-P710-D is designed to accurately suit any device that is fitted directly to the dashboard, occupying one DIN unit. The Via EPIA-P710 board is connected using SUMIT connectors, positioning the Via Eden processor downward allowing simple passive cooling designs that can incorporate the chassis of the device. The Via EPIA P710-D works in tandem with the Pico-ITXe-based Via EPIA-P710 board, adding an I/O feature set tailor-made for fleet management device design.
Front side I/O includes a SIM slot and SD card reader for easy access to GSM services and local data storage, as well as access for two USB 2.0 ports, audio jacks and HDD activity and power LEDs. Internal storage needs are provided by both IDE and SATA ports with rear I/O providing access to VGA, COM, UART and GPIO technologies.
