Evalue Unveils 3.5-inch VIA V4 CN700 Single Board Computer

Evalue Technology of Taiwan has launched the ECM-3711 single board computer (SBC) with the VIA CN700 chipset optimized for the VIA V4 (Eden and C7) processor. The compact and powerful ECM-3711 features single 5V ATX power input, jumperless serial port settings and advanced STR (Suspend to RAM) power management for enhanced ease of configuration, power efficiency and total cost of ownership.

The ECM-3711 delivers high system performance and rich functionality, including dual view display, dual Gigabit LAN, dual SATA, 5.1 channel Audio, 2 COM ports, 4 USB ports and 16-bit GPIO. Additionally, the ECM-3711 offers options for fanless embedded designs, as seen in Evalue’s latest barebones system EES-3711 which is expected to be released within the next few months.

Evalue VIA CN700 SBC with Smart STR and Jumperless Functionality

Onboard Ultra Low Voltage (ULV) V4 Eden processor features a low power design that provides an optimized balance between power consumption and system performance. Capable of running up to 1.5 GHz, the system consumes just 12W when operating at full speed. Accommodating the VIA PadLock Security Engine, the system board provides a platform approach to computer security and ensures uncompromising security performance.

The compact system delivers a highly advanced solution with up to 1GB DDR2 400/533 SDRAM, AC97 5.1ch audio and dual 1000Based-T Ethernet ports for even the most demanding of multimedia applications. Incorporating the S3 UniChrome 2D/3D graphic engine, the ECM-3711 delivers exceptional graphics quality and extensive support for all types of panels. Its onboard 2-channel 18/24-bit LVDS interface supports UXGA panel and dual independent displays.

Two featured designs in the ECM-3711 make power management and system configuration functional and simple.

The ECM-3711 contains an automatic µP controller that enables switching between 5V or 5V/12V input for high power functions such as 5.1 channel Audio. The controller emulates ATX power supply enabling full compliant support (ACPI 2.1C: S0~S5) for both STD and STR modes. The same architecture efficiently manages power and performance by allocating +5V or +12V to respective components. Jumperless RS-232/422/485 serial port function: An innovative circuit design that allows system engineers to directly configure serial port settings from BIOS, Windows or DOS without the need to remove the system case.
