AMD announced the AMD Embedded G-T16R Accelerated Processing Unit (APU). The AMD G-T16R APU enables small form factor and fanless designs. It has a power consumption of only 2.3 watts on average or 4.5 watts thermal design power (TDP). The AMD Embedded G-T16R is targeted at very low power, small form factor and cost-sensitive embedded designs that require a combination of x86 compatibility and graphics. It is ideal for point-of-sale order entry stations and tablets, medical bedside terminals and solar-powered traffic control devices.
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.
