The new VIA ARTiGO A900 provides all the key components for building Android-based interactive kiosks, home automation devices, signage, and other HMI solutions. The Android system can be configured to blend locally-captured real-time video streams with cloud-delivered content to create visually-compelling interactive displays for retail, banking, museums, and other environments. Peripheral devices such as sensors, cameras, ticket printers, and barcode and fingerprint scanners can be integrated through the system’s Serial, Digital I/O, or USB 2.0 ports. The system is powered by a 1.0 GHz dual core VIA Elite E1000 Cortex-A9 SoC with a high-performance 2D/3D graphics and video engine. The fanless sealed chassis, measuring 125 x 30 x 120 mm features three USB 2.0 ports and line-in/out audio jacks on the front panel and on the back panel are two Mini HDMI ports, Digital I/O port supporting 4-bit GPIO, RS232/485 COM port, Gigabit Ethernet port, Micro SD card slot, Mini USB 2.0 port, and 12 Vdc in jack. Onboard mSATA and Mini-PCIe slots make possible integration of optional high-speed wireless networking capabilities through a choice of 802.11b/g/n and 3.75 G HSP/UMTS mini-PCIe mobile broadband modules. Other onboard features include 2 GB DDR3 SDRAM, 4 GB eMMC Flash memory and WOL support. The VIA ARTiGO A900 Android system is available now with samples priced at $350 plus shipping.
