AMD (NYSE: AMD) recently announced several new platform-stable, energy-efficient additions to their embedded product line. The high performance AMD Turion(tm) 64 X2 Dual-Core processors TL-56 and TL-62 feature leading edge 64-bit application performance and low power for the industrial control, digital signage, and point-of-sale embedded markets. The energy-efficient AMD Sempron(tm) processor 3700+ offers additional performance in a consistent and very low-power thermal envelope for value-based designs. The new products are available immediately and are offered through the AMD Longevity Program, which offers components for an industry-standard five year term and enables design consistency.
The use of advanced AMD manufacturing process technology improvements allows for a new version of the Mobile AMD Sempron processor 2100+ that achieves up to a 15% reduction in thermal design power. All of these new products feature a consistent Socket S1, allowing for quicker development and delivery times through socket consistency and platform longevity.
A new chipset has also been added to AMD’s embedded portfolio. Based on the AMD 690 Series chipsets, the AMD M690E provides additional display design flexibility for embedded graphics and enables seamless playback of high definition video content for embedded applications.
AMD is also offering a COM Express form factor reference design kit that enables OEMs to quickly design embedded systems that deliver high quality graphics, high performance, and high I/O throughput.
