AMD Reveals New Embedded G-Series APUs
It's also a huge leap for the embedded market, as these feature x86 Bobcat CPU cores and a discreet DirectX 11-capable GPU on a single die. Buddy Broeker, director, Embedded Solutions, AMD, had this to say: "We have seen many of our embedded customers deploy fanless systems even with our 15W TDP processors in the past. Today we take the ground-breaking AMD Fusion APU well below 7W TDP and shatter the accepted traditional threshold for across-the-board fanless enablement."
Systems based on the new low power AMD Embedded G-Series platform include an industrial mobile device from Amtek, a Pico-ITX single board computer from Axiomtek, a Qseven form factor computer-on-module from datakamp, and a fanless digital signage platform from iBASE. Additional customers are expected to bring new products to market in the coming quarters, and we're hoping to get pricing details even sooner.
