VIA APC up for pre-order, starts shipping in July

VIA is offering pre-orders for a new SFF embedded system called the APC

By Trace Hagan from Jun 12, 2012 @ 9:02 CDT

Small embedded systems are becoming more and more popular after being spurred on by Raspberry Pi. The new VIA system is cheap, but not quite as cheap as the Raspberry Pi system. The APC, VIA's new system, will set you back only $49 before shipping. But, after shipping to Europe, USA, or Canada, it will be a total of $87.

The VIA APC sports a VIA WonderMedia 875 800 MHz ARM11 processor, 512MB of memory, and 2GB of storage. And unlike the Raspberry Pi system, this new APC features quite a few more connectivity options. The list below details it's I/O offerings:

  • 4 USB 2.0 ports
  • HDMI
  • VGA
  • mic input
  • audio output
  • 10/100 Etherent
  • microSD card slot

There are other competitors in the small form-factor computing market, but none seem to offer quite the connectivity of the new APC. It ships with Google's Android version 2.3 and should be capable of running Linux and other operating systems. Just be sure to not try and put Windows 7 on this. And no, it won't run Crysis.
