WIN Enterprises, AMD to Provide OEMs with AMD64-Based Embedded Designs

3/10/2005 - WIN Enterprises, Inc., a leading designer and manufacturer of customized embedded systems, has worked with AMD (NYSE: AMD) to provide OEM developers and system integrators with AMD64 processor-based embedded controllers and platforms.

AMD’s announcement of the long-term availability of certain Opteron processors has enabled the development of several new reference designs for the embedded market.

“A number of our customers have been approaching us, asking for 64-bit processor capability on a small platform for quite a while,” said Chiman Patel, CEO / CTO of WIN Enterprises. “The entry of AMD into this market space has enabled us to meet those customers’ unique requirements.”

MB-06047, a new controller featuring a 16-lane PCI-ExpressTM slot and a stackable HyperTransportTM connector, is among the first long-life Opteron processor-based reference designs for the embedded market. With its small form factor and an optional dual-core design, MB-06047 is ideal for demanding gaming, imaging, and networking applications.

“WIN Enterprises knows the x86 embedded market – from set-top boxes to rack-mount appliances,” said David Rich, director, Business Development and Support, AMD Boston Design Center. “We knew that many of our customers looking to design embedded systems with the AMD Opteron processor would also look to WIN Enterprises for reference designs and their expertise in development and production.”

Currently, WIN Enterprises is also collaborating with AMD on a new PICMG 1.3 reference design, among others.

WIN Enterprises will be offering AMD reference designs to OEM developers as commercial, off-the-shelf (COTS) controllers or as part of complete embedded platforms. WIN Enterprises offers full design, manufacturing, fulfillment, and support services to ensure the success of all product launches and product lifecycles.
