AMD fills SBC gap
It is also believed the G Series will help extend the lifetime of the ETX and XTX following the discontinuation of the 855 chipset family.
Congatec currently offers a total of five processors from the AMD embedded G Series platform, including both single- and dual-core devices. While the integrated graphics core creates the Accelerated Processing Unit (APU), the GPU also targets general purpose applications through the parallel processing possible, making it suitable for a range of compute-intensive applications.
A new mini carrier board for COM Express Compact modules has also been introduced, measuring 145 x 95mm it features four USB ports and a Gigabit Ethernet connection. Graphics support comes in the form of DisplayPort, HDMI, LVDS, DVI and VGA interfaces, along with a mini-PCI Express socket.
