VIA Initiates APC: The $49 Android PC
Taipei, Taiwan, 22nd May, 2012 - VIA Technologies, Inc, a leading innovator of power
efficient computing platforms, today unveiled the $49 APC Android PC system.
Powered by a WonderMedia ARM processor, APC integrates memory, storage, and a full set
of consumer I/O features in a small footprint Neo-ITX motherboard that can be connected to
a TV or monitor. The system also features a custom build of Android that has been
optimized for keyboard and mouse input, and comes with a browser and a selection of
preinstalled apps.
“APC brings the familiarity and convenience of Android to the PC at a US$49 price point that
will open up exciting new markets and applications,” said Richard Brown, VP of Marketing,
VIA Technologies, Inc. “Like a bicycle for your mind, APC will enable more people than ever
before to explore the vast online universe.”
APC is based on the new Neo-ITX form factor measuring just 17cm x 8.5cm and can be
housed in any standard Mini-ITX or microATX chassis, providing enthusiasts with unrivaled
flexibility to create new mods and DIY projects as well as ensuring rapid time to market for
system integrators and OEMs utilizing the platform.
APC consumes only 4 watts when operating at idle power and 13.5 watts at maximum load.
This is ten times less than a standard PC system and ensures significant power savings in
large scale deployments.
