AMD opens five-year window for embedded x86 processors
AMD’s latest embedded G-Series processor is an x86 based device with a graphics accelerator and with power consumption of 2.3W on average or 4.5 watts thermal design power (TDP), writes Richard Wilson.
AMD also said it is extending the planned availability for the entire G-Series processor family through 2017.
Designated the AMD G-T16R, the chip is being offered as an upgrade for the AMD Geode LX processor family, which consumes about 7% less power and three times the performance of the 2.45W AMD Geode LX processor.
The new processor also supports the latest DDR3 memory.
The firm’s G-Series processors are typically used in embedded boards such as the small Qseven computer-on-modules and MiniITX form factor.
“This new accelerated processing unit helps to enable small form factor and fan-less designs with power consumption of just 2.3 watts on average,” said Arun Iyengar, general manager, AMD Embedded Solutions.
The AMD Embedded G-T16R APU supports Windows Embedded Compact 7, Green Hills INTEGRITY and Express Logic ThreadX operating systems.
