The worlds first combination of low-power CPU and advanced GPU intergrated into a single embedded device
The AMD Embedded G-Series processor is the world’s first integrated circuit to combine a low-power CPU and a discrete-level GPU into a single embedded Accelerated Processing Unit (APU). This unprecedented level of graphics integration builds a new foundation for high performance multi-media content delivery in a small form factor and power efficient platform for a broad range of embedded designs. Based on a power-optimized core, the AMD Embedded G-Series platform delivers levels of performance in a compact BGA package that is ideal for low power designs in embedded applications such as Digital Signage, x86 Set-Top Box (xSTB), IP-TV, Thin Client, Information Kiosk, Point-of-Sale, Casino Gaming, Media Servers, and Industrial Control Systems.
Low Power, Exceptional Performance
The AMD G-Series platform is a flexible solution that in the same package offers scalable choices for the level of CPU performance, power efficiency, and visual experience. The AMD G-T16R APU with an average power of only 2.3 Watts1 enables very small form factor, fan-less and portable applications. APU configurations are available with single or dual x86 cores, at 4.5W, 9W or 18W thermal design power (TDP), and two levels of graphics and video performance. Each APU supports single or dual-independent high resolution displays and exceptional multi-media capability with hardware decode support for H.264, VC-1, MPEG2, WMV, DivX and Adobe® Flash. When paired with the AMD A50M controller hub with support for advanced interfaces such as 6Gb/s SATA, Generation 2 PCI Express®, and HD Audio, the AMD G-Series platform delivers
a low power, value-oriented solution for applications requiring a better balance of CPU and multimedia performance. For high-end, full- featured platforms, the AMD A55E controller hub is an alternative pairing choice with added features of
Gigabit Ethernet MAC, RAID (0/1/5/10) support with FIS-based switching, and PCI local bus support.
Headless Embedded Systems
For deeply embedded headless systems, the AMD Embedded G-Series CPU models T48L and T30L enable whisper-quiet media servers and model T24L enables fanless design for factory control systems.
Features and Benefits
A flexible platform that in one package offers many choices for power efficiency, visual experience with high resolution, and fully connected Internet experience with maximum multi- media capability. Delivering unprecedented high definition
visual experience while still maintaining a low power design.
