  1. Hi,

    Im researching components for a product i am looking at getting built and i wondered if anyone could tell me where to look for small motherboards.

    For what i am doing the minimum system requirements are as follows:

    Processor: Pentium or Athlon 800MHz
    Ram: 512MB
    OS: Win XP

    I would also need to process audio on this device and it would need to support touchscreen technology.

    Im at the very begging of this project so apologies if what im asking is a bit vague.

    Your help would be most appreciated.

    Define small?

    Via EPIA boards are small. How about 12cm by 12cm? :D

    aah yes, it would have been a good idea to put a size down!!

    The size of the product i am designing is 170x100x25mm. I will obviously have to make it bigger if i cant get a small enough motherboard which can cope with the above spec but thats my ideal size.

    Any ideas??

    Thanks again

    This board may be a good option.

    Here are the manufactures specs:

    via C7 based boards are also a good option (the AMD is more powerfull) but if you go with via make sure stick with the C7 (the C3 is outdated and has verry poor performance especially under XP.)
    Here are some C7 options.
