AMD Delivers First APU for Embedded Systems


AMD today announced the availability of the new AMD Embedded G-Series processor, the first Accelerated Processing Unit (APU) for embedded systems.

The AMD Embedded G-Series, based on AMD Fusion technology, delivers a complete, full-featured embedded platform and incorporates the new low-power, x86 CPU based on the "Bobcat" core with a DirectX 11-capable GPU and parallel processing engine on a single piece of silicon.



AMD claims that this new class of accelerated processor combines more compute capabilities on a single die than any processor in the history of computing and represents opportunity for major advancements in embedded systems.

Many embedded systems based on the AMD Embedded G-Series are available today or expected to launch in the coming weeks from companies including Advansus, Compulab, Congatec, Fujitsu, Haier, iEi, Kontron, Mitec, Quixant, Sintrones, Starnet, WebDT, Wyse, and many others. Expected products include graphics-intensive solutions like digital signage, internet-ready set top boxes, mobile and desktop thin clients, casino gaming machines, point-of-sale kiosks, and small form factor PCs, as well as numerous single board computers (SBCs).



AMD has assessed many of the trends shaping today?s embedded market, including the ever-pressing need for power efficiency and a small footprint, along with high CPU performance, full feature sets, and a strong graphics solution.

The open development ecosystem for the AMD Embedded G-Series platform includes multiple BIOS options, support for various Microsoft Windows, Linux, and real-time operating systems, the integrated OpenCL programming environment, and source-level debug tools.

AMD plans to offer 9W TDP and 18W TDP APU options paired with AMD A50Mor A55E I/O Controller Hub for value of full featured platforms respectively. Typical configurations for the AMD A50M and A55E controller hubs result in TDPs ranging from 2.7W to 4.7W.

The 18W AMD G-Series APU power band includes 1.6GHz dual-core, 1.5 GHz dual-core and 1.4GHz single-core models. The 9W power band includes 1.0GHz dual-core and 1.2GHz single-core models.

AMD Embedded G-Series APU Specifications

* 1 or 2 x86 "Bobcat" CPU cores with 1MB L2 cache, 64-bit Floating Point Unit
* Up to 1.6GHz
* 9W and 18W TDP

* Array of SIMD Engines
o DirectX 11 capable graphics
o 3D and graphics processing

* 3rd Generation Unified Video Decoder
* Power management features, including C6 and power gating
* DDR3 800-1066 memory with support for 64 bit channel and 2 DIMMs
* Ball Grid Array (BGA) package
* 890mm˛ physical footprint, including the AMD Fusion I/O Controller Hub





AMD claims that the new G-series platform offers a 48% smaller footprint over the company's previous generation. In addition, it delivers a 38% smaller footprint that the Intel Atom 400 and the 500 series and a 12% smaller footprint than the Intel Atom E6xx series. The G-series also delivers a 9X graphics performance at 80% of the power of Intel's solutions, AMD says.
