AMD Embedded G-Series APU for Embedded Systems

AMD introduced their new Embedded G-Series processor for embedded systems. The Accelerated Processing Unit (APU) features AMD Fusion technology and a low-power, x86 CPU based on the Bobcat core with a DirectX 11-capable GPU and parallel processing engine. The G-Series is ideal for digital signage, internet-ready set top boxes, mobile and desktop thin clients, casino gaming machines, point-of-sale kiosks, small form factor PCs, and single board computers (SBCs). Companies like Advansus, Compulab, Congatec, Fujitsu, Haier, iEi, Kontron, Mitec, Quixant, Sintrones, Starnet, WebDT, and Wyse will be launching embedded systems based on the AMD Embedded G-Series soon.
