VIA 'Luke' CoreFusion Processing Platform

The new VIA 'Luke' CoreFusion Processing Platform integrates the latest generation VIA Eden-N processor with the VIA CN400 North Bridge in a single, low power package that significantly reduces the board real estate required for integrating a full complement of high performance x86 computing, connecting and digital media playback and recording capabilities.

Utilizing up to 15% less board space than competitive solutions and with highly efficient heat dissipation, VIA CoreFusion is the ideal cost effective solution to speed up time to market for developers of low profile and highly integrated embedded devices.
