    VIA Technologies, Inc, a leading innovator and developer of silicon chip technologies and PC platform solutions, today announced the VIA CX700 digital media IGP chipset for the VIA C7 and Eden processor platforms, the most advanced x86 embedded chipset that integrates all the cutting-edge features of a modern chipset's North and South bridges, including rich video graphics, HD audio, and DDR2 and SATA II support, into a single, compact and highly power-efficient package. A host of leading digital media, memory and connectivity technologies are packed into the single-chip package of the VIA CX700:
    • Video – Enhanced video quality is provided through the proven VIA UniChrome Pro IGP core with its 128-bit 2D/3D graphics, acclaimed hardware MPEG-2 video decoding acceleration and intelligent video rendering technology of the Chromotion CE video display engine; this is complemented by the VIA Vinyl HD Audio controller supporting up to eight high definition channels delivering a richer all-round digital media experience.
    • Memory – VIA's renowned memory controller technology has been incorporated into the VIA CX700, with support for both DDR400 and the high-bandwidth DDR2 533 memory up to 4GB with ECC capability, and 32-bit as well as 64-bit system memory to extend performance, design and cost flexibility to developers.
    • Connectivity – Broad connectivity comes with support for SATA, SATA II and PATA drives, two COM and six USB2.0 ports, and four PCI slots, allowing for considerable flexibility in board configuration. Moreover, developers can also integrate support for ISA through an ITE PCI bridge chip, combining legacy ISA connectivity with high bandwidth DDR2 memory support for far more powerful embedded systems.
    • Display – Flexibility is extended to display technologies, with the VIA CX700 integrating a multi-configuration LVDS/DVI transmitter, a popular feature for embedded systems, as well as standard TV-out, and incorporating DuoView to enable dual screen display.
    The VIA CX700 is expected to be available in volume quantities later in Q2 2006.
