VIA NetNote Turnkey Systems

Hitting the Mobile Sweet Spot

Offering a range of sizes from 10.2" to 12.1", VIA NetNote Turnkey Systems combine the portability and affordability of a netbook with the functionality and HD entertainment capabilities of a notebook in a light, high performance clamshell mobile device with long battery life, and support for flawless playback of high bit-rate 1080p HD video.

VIA NetNote Turnkey Systems offer customers a quick, low cost approach to entering the mobile computing market or expanding their current product portfolio and feature a choice of VIA C7-M ULV or VIA Nano processors supporting an 800MHz FSB, combined with the VIA VX855 media system processor with its support for a wide range of digital media technologies and I/O.

NetNote devices not only boast the full functionality and larger keyboard and screen sizes more commonly found on standard notebook devices, but also incorporate innovative features such as an integrated, externally controlled MP3 player that doesn't require the user to boot the OS, an extendable aerial used to receive digital video broadcast from both satellite and terrestrial transmitters, and the ability to act as an FM transmitter allowing users to tune in car radios or cell phones to pick up NetNote broadcasts.

VIA Components

VIA C7®-M ULV Processor

The VIA C7®-M ULV processor family ranges in speed from 1.0 – 1.6 GHz using a 90nm manufacturing process. To ensure enhanced low power consumption the maximum thermal design power (TDP) ranges between 3.5 watts to 8 watts, depending on the speed chosen, and idle power is as low as 0.1 watt, thus ensuring extended battery life. This is complemented by a low profile nanoBGA2 package measuring just 21mm x 21mm enabling designs with drastically reduced weight, size, and thickness.

VIA Nano™ Processor

The first 64-bit, superscalar processors in VIA's x86 platform portfolio, VIA Nano processors leverage advanced 65 nanometer process technology for the ideal blend of powerful performance and energy efficiency. Utilizing the high-speed, low power VIA V4 Front Side Bus up to 800MHz, while supporting new SSE instructions and two 64KB L1 caches and a 1MB exclusive L2 cache with 16-way associativity gives a big boost to the processor's multimedia performance.

VIA VX855 Media System Processor

The new VIA VX855 Media System Processor is a power efficient, highly integrated all-in-one chipset that introduces the advantages of next-generation high-definition video compression algorithms to ultra-mobile devices. The VIA VX855 enables the VIA Surfboard C855 to support hardware acceleration of leading video standards including H.264, MPEG-2, MPEG-4 and VC-1 at the highest bit-rates and resolutions, greatly reducing the workload and thus the power consumption of the processor.
