Advanced Micro Devices has just announced to expand its processor portfolio with the introduction of two new dual-core chips designed for embedded client ASB1 BGA platform. With a low TDP of just 18W, the new Turion X2 Neo model L625 and L325 Athlon X2 Neo model for PC-like performance in a smaller, less power package, and embedded-friendly ball grid array (BGA) package.
“We are determined to help simplify the development cycle for our customers with an embedded platform that is easy to change from the needs of their markets,” said Buddy Broek, director, Embedded Computing Solutions Division, AMD. “System as digital signage, point of sale and thin clients require PC performance and a rich graphical experience. ASB1 PGI Our platform is ready to join a single solution to these markets, while giving flexibility multiple CPU and chipset choice.”
PGI ASB1 embedded client platform designed for single computers and thin clients, as well as self-kiosks, where sales of machines and digital signage. The newly introduced AMD processors have a TDP of 18W and will be judged by the clock speeds of 1.6GHz Turion X2 Neo L625 and 1.5GHz for the Athlon X2 Neo L325. Besides these two models are designed to be compatible with the chip maker of M690E and 780E chipset, which provides a complete x86-based solution.
“The rapid adoption of x86 processors in embedded designs, this is a trend that contributed to increase AMD in high-end space, largely driven by the need to simplify designs and make them quickly,” says Eric Heikkilä, Director, Embedded Hardware and systems analyst, VDC Research Group. “From the hardware perspective, AMD’s approach offers traditional performance and very low power consumption and a large part of the guesses of the development process.”
The chips are embedded products are offered with industry-standard 5-years component longevity risk.
