Message Text: At Embedded World today, AMD announced a line up of new products and tools for embedded customers.

These offerings span products, software, design, and sales support and include immediate availability of three new low-power processors for the AMD Embedded G-Series platform, as well as the new Systems and Technology track for the AMD Fusion Partner Program that is aimed at embedded solutions providers.

Today?s addition of new CPUs for the AMD Embedded G-Series platform allows embedded or "headless" systems, which are used in environments without a screen, monitor, or input device and don?t require a graphics solution, to take advantage of the new "Bobcat" CPU core. These new processors are available in 5W and 18W power bands and provide a set of computational features including out-of-order execution, a high-performance floating point unit, across-the-board 64-bit capability, and multi-core options.

AMD Embedded Solutions has developed a Reference Design Kit (RDK) to help reduce design and development time of storage and media servers aimed at small and medium businesses and home offices. The SMB/SOHO storage RDK has fully-tested schematics and layout source files that allow companies to focus precious engineering resources on creating differentiation for their customers. It supports the forthcoming Microsoft Windows Small Business Server 2011, as well as Linux, and is based on AMD Turion II Neo and AMD Athlon II Neo processors with the AMD SR5650 chipset. The reference design features ECC memory, RAID, and up to four SATA drives for a system that allows easy access to and protection of business-critical data on the network.

AMD has also released source code for coreboot, an open-source BIOS option that initializes hardware and boot logic for systems based on Microsoft Windows and Linux and is especially relevant for the many embedded systems based on proprietary or non-traditional operating systems.
