Via has a page to request a datasheet for their hardware...
unfortunately, it also uses the 3-letter word: NDA. It couldn't hurt to
email them and find out if there's an NDA attached to this datasheet or
not. It does not seem that this datasheet is available anywhere for
public download, at least not on their website or the first few pages of
a google search.
