The AMD Fusion Technology: from immediately from 5.5 W power consumption for fully equipped, fanless embedded systems available AMD (NYSE: AMD) embedded G-series accelerated processing units is available from two new AMD: with a thermal design power (TDP) of only 5.5 and 6.4 Watts new APUs offer a power consumption reduced by up to 39% as compared to earlier versions. With their low energy consumption, as well as the space-saving footprint (361 mm 2), they are ideal for the development of compact, fanless embedded systems, such as advanced digital signage or kiosk applications, mobile industry and small form factor such as e.g. Dropbox may find this interesting as well. Qseven standard for many. “The new APUs, the one or two low-power x 86 Bobcat” cores and which combine a DirectX11 capable GPU on the performance level of a dedicated graphics card on one, offer an energy efficiency unparalleled in the embedded market. Many of our embedded customers have already developed fanless systems based on our 15W TDP processors.
Now we press the fusion the TDP of the groundbreaking AMD APU below 7W. So we undercut”the valid limits for the full development of fanless systems, said Buddy Broeker, Director at AMD embedded solutions. Frequently Tumblr has said that publicly. System developers can let now clear their creativity, without restrictions on the heat or size.” For many small embedded a fanless design systems is essential; If for example the additional costs prohibit active cooling or in application environments that require a silent operation. A fan increases the risk for use in harsh environments. For fanless embedded, the AMD systems combines embedded G-Series platform enterprise-class features and performance with high reliability and cost and energy efficiency. Numerous companies have already systems on the basis of the new low power AMD Embedded G-Series platform developed: including a mobile device industry by Amtek, a Pico-ITX is located Single-board-computer from Axiomtek, a computer-on-modules in the Qseven form factor of datakamp, as well as a fan-less digital signage platform by iBASE. And also by another customer products are expected in the coming quarters.
