The Ryzen Embedded R1000 series is based on AMD’s Zen microarchitecture. The new generation of energy-efficient processors provides an optimal combination of high-performance, low-power operation and cost-sensitive pricing. The architecture has a slimmed down function set in comparison with the full AMD Ryzen V1000 processors, but still offers 2 multi-threaded cores, support for three 4k displays with AMD Radeon Vega GPU featuring three compute units. The TDP is scalable from 24 to 12 watts and offers CPU speeds of up to 3.5 GHz for providing a large amount of processing power from a single thread. The CPUs also provide impressive graphics performance.

“With 16% better CPU performance and 33% better GPU performance than its direct competitor, the high-performance R1606G SoC offers decisive competitive advantages. The AMD Ryzen Embedded R1505G offering only slightly lower performance is even more outstanding: It achieves 51% better performance in the CineBench R15, and the GPU achieves 91% better performance in 3DMark11 compared to the direct competition,” explains Andreas Bergbauer, Product Line Manager COM Express at congatec.

The conga-TR4 high-performance modules with COM Express Type 6 pinout are based on the AMD Ryzen Embedded R1505G and R1606G multi-core SoCs. They support up to 32 GB dual-channel DDR4 memory with up to 2400 MT/s and optional ECC for maximum data security. AMD Radeon Vega graphics with 3 compute units supports up to three independent displays with up to 4k UHD resolution and 10-bit HDR, as well as DirectX 12 and OpenGL 4.4 for 3D graphics. The integrated video engine allows hardware-accelerated streaming of HEVC (H.265) video in both directions. Thanks to HSA and OpenCL 2.0 support, deep learning workloads can be assigned to the GPU.

The conga-TR4 features a full USB-C implementation on the carrier board including USB 3.1 Gen 2 with 10 Gbit/s, Power Delivery and DisplayPort 1.4. Other interfaces include 1x PEG 3.0 x4, 3x PCIe Gen 3 and 4x PCIe Gen 2, and 2x SATA Gen 3 as well as 3x USB 3.1 Gen 2, 1x USB 3.1 Gen 1, 8x USB 2.0, and 1x Gbit Ethernet. High Definition Audio and I/Os for SD, SPI, LPC, I²C as well as 2x UART from the CPU and round off the range of interfaces. Supported operating systems include Linux, Yocto 2.0 and Microsoft Windows 10, or optionally Windows 7.
