VIA TechnologiesVIA Technologies, Inc is the foremost fabless supplier of power efficient x86 processor platforms that are driving system innovation in the PC, client, ultra mobile and embedded markets. Combining energy-saving processors with digital media chipsets and advanced connectivity, multimedia and networking silicon enables a broad spectrum of computing and communication platforms, including its widely acclaimed ultra compact mainboards.
Via Technologies is the third-place x86 chip maker and once a real threat to Intel and AMD in PCs. Via is the third x86 chip maker whose processors are now compatible with Windows 10. Via also makes ARM-based chips for smartphones and tablets. The company offers ARM-based boards for machine-to-machine communication, digital signs, smart devices and other industrial applications.
In 1999, VIA acquired most of Cyrix, then a division of National Semiconductor. That same year, VIA acquired Centaur Technology from Integrated Device Technology, marking its entry into the x86 microprocessor market. VIA is the maker of the VIA C3, VIA C7 & VIA Nano processors, and the EPIA platform. The Cyrix MediaGX platform remained with National Semiconductor. MediaGX was developed by National Semiconductor into the Geode line of processors, which was subsequently sold to Advanced Micro Devices.
VIA Embedded boards are the embodiment of VIA’s feature-rich and power-efficient platform technologies. Combining a rich mix of low-power embedded ARM & x86 processors, core logic, networking, connectivity and multimedia components to provide all the necessary functionality and performance for even the most demanding embedded system design applications.
