EPIA is the name for the family of motherboards VIA makes in the
Mini-ITX & smaller form factors. The series includes about 4-5
different processor families ranging from the old C3 's up to the Nano

The only way I know of to figure out which which mainboard  you have
is to cross reference the outputs of "cat /proc/cpuinfo" and "lspci -v
" against VIA's own specs lists. You may even have to go so far as to
open the unit's case to find the silk screened model number.
