VIA today introduced the VIA ‘Luke’ CoreFusion™ Processing Platform, combining the industry-leading VIA Eden-N processor with the acclaimed VIA CN400 digital media chipset north bridge in a single package, at the Embedded System Conference taking place this week in San Francisco, California.

The VIA ‘Luke’ CoreFusion Processing Platform boasts all the benefits of the world’s lowest power, most secure native x86 processor with clock speeds of up to 1GHz and in-built security hardware, as well as extensive video rendering, streaming and output technologies, such as hardware MPEG-2/-4 decoding acceleration and motion compensation, in a single, low power aluminium package. With support for LVDS output for flat panel displays, DVI for LCD monitors, TV-out and CRT displays, the high-performance, thermally-efficient VIA ‘Luke’ CoreFusion Processing Platform is ideally suited for even the most demanding embedded devices.

Utilizing up to 15% less board space than competitive solutions while offering exceptional playback and streaming of all the most popular digital video formats, the VIA ‘Luke’ CoreFusion Processing Platform has been designed to facilitate the rapidly emerging new segment of flat panel system designs such as LCD TVs to car entertainment systems, ultra portable notebooks and intelligent displays.
