VIA Technologies is using its time at GITEX Technology Week to reach out to emerging markets that are looking to produce PCs and other products based on value-orientated processors and chipsets.

The company manufactures desktop, mobile and ultra-mobile core-logic chipsets, embedded chipsets in addition to SouthBridge chips.

SouthBridge chips are found on motherboards and offer USB and Serial ATA connectivity as well as other interfaces that allow devices to connect to the motherboard’s NorthBridge chip and ultimately the system’s central processor.

The firm recently launched its very first quad-core processor and dual-core mini ITX solution.

VIA also offers a variety of audio chips and has pioneered a 24-bit resolution with 96/192kHZ audio sampling rates. In the video department the company’s strength is apparently cemented in video TV encoders, video LVDS transmitters and digital visual interface (DVI) transmitters.

VIA also makes wireless LAN controller chips and network switch controllers. The ‘Velocity’ series offers Gigabit Ethernet performance, whereas the ‘Rhine’ series features products that are rated at 10/100Mbps fast Ethernet speeds. Finally, the Tahoe series presents single chip 10/1000Mbps Ethernet physical layer and transceiver interface solutions.

VIA Technologies was founded in 1987 and is currently headquartered in Taipei, Taiwan. The company has global links in the United States, Europe and Asia. Its customer base includes some of the world’s top OEMs and system integrators.
