Tuesday, March 17, 2009: VIA Technologies has announced the VIA Surfboard C855 Reference Design — an ultra-compact mainboard incorporating the VIA C7-M ULV processor, new VIA VX855 unified IGP chipset, and advanced VIA multimedia and connectivity silicon — that has been specifically designed for easy integration into devices targeted at the rapidly growing mini-notebook market.

According to the company, the VIA Surfboard C855 Reference Design will not only reduce development time and costs for system manufacturers, but offers the latest advancements in ultra-mobile technology including smooth playback of high bit-rate 1080p HD video and outstanding 8-channel HD audio.

Designed for 10-12-inch-screen mini-notebook devices, the VIA Surfboard C855 supports for internal display resolutions of up to 1366 x 768 pixels and external display resolutions up to 1920 x 1440 pixels, the latest high definition VIA Vinyl Audio, and a wide range of connectivity options, allowing rich on-the-go multimedia experience.

“A key advantage of the VIA Surfboard C855 is the head start it affords mini-notebook system developers or those seeking to enter the market,” said Richard Brown, vice president, marketing, VIA Technologies, Inc. “Not only is VIA in the unique position of being able to offer customers a complete, ready-to-build solution, but the new board’s HD capabilities mean VIA-based mini-notebooks will provide a superior multi-media entertainment experience.”
