The AMD Embedded G-Series platform is the world’s first integrated circuit to combine a low-power CPU and a discrete-level GPU into a single embedded Accelerated Processing Unit (APU).This unprecedented level of graphics integration builds a new foundation for high performance multi-media content delivery in a small form factor and power efficient platform for a broad range of embedded designs. Based on a brand new power-optimized core, the AMD Embedded G-Series platform delivers new levels of performance in a compact BGA package that is ideal for low power designs in embedded applications such as Digital Signage, x86 Set-Top-Box (xSTB), IP-TV, Thin Client, Information Kiosk, Point-of-Sale, and Casino Gaming.
Patrick Patla, corporate vice president and general manager, Server and Embedded Division, AMD, said:
AMD’s commitment is to ensure the game-changing technologies we develop for consumers and the enterprise are also available for the vast and growing embedded market. Today, we have a record number of embedded launch partners. They are using the unique advancements of the AMD Embedded G-Series APU to develop a brand new generation of highly differentiated, energy-efficient, small form-factor embedded systems that can deliver the vivid visual experience expected in our always-connected world.
Features & Benefits
