The R1000-based module platform in COM Express Compact format features high graphics performance that can replace an external solution in price-sensitive applications. Another advantage is the low power dissipation of 12 to 25 watts. In addition to the R1000 APU with two cores, the modules integrate a dual channel DDR4 memory with optional ECC. In addition to the common embedded interfaces such as PCI Express, there are connections for up to three independent 4k displays. Some module variants are designed for the industrial temperature range from -40 °C to +85 °C. The module versions are available in a variety of sizes. The boards developed for the embedded market are available at least ten years after the processor's product launch.
Typical applications for the R1000-based COM Express module family are applications with high graphics requirements and large data volumes, e.g. in medical technology, HMI systems, gaming and entertainment products.
The R1000 embedded processor family has the same architecture as AMD's V1000 processors. Both processor families are socket compatible and thus allow application-specific scaling in terms of performance and costs. In addition to the R1000, Avnet Integrated also offers V1000-based product variants to provide customers with the full power spectrum.
Samples will be available from August 2019 and volume production is planned for the end of 2019.
