AMD reveals two new embedded platforms

Posted on Monday, April 26 2010 @ 20:40:30 CEST by


AMD announced two new platforms for the embedded market:
At Embedded Systems Conference today, AMD (NYSE: AMD) announced two new complete platforms for the embedded market, the compact ASB2 platform and the high-performance AM3 platform, that offer myriad combinations of power and performance with up to 74 percent improvement in performance-per-watt over previous generations. AMD’s new flexible embedded platforms consist of chipset and graphics solutions along with high-performance CPUs as low as 8W TDP for the ideal solution based on application requirements. System designers focusing on their next-generation products can see immediate benefits commonly associated with industry-standard x86 processors, including streamlined design and development, a large software ecosystem, and fast time-to-market.

“The barriers to widespread adoption of x86 in the broad embedded market have traditionally been a combination of power, price and the physical footprint of the silicon,” said Buddy Broeker, director, Embedded Solutions Division, AMD. “AMD’s embedded solutions have been steadily driving down those barriers while adding enterprise-class performance and features that may not have been readily available to designers in the past. Our commitment to the embedded market grows stronger as we look to a future introduction of AMD Fusion™ technology products into the embedded space.”

Embedded industry leaders support the benefits of AMD’s approach to x86 and complete platform solutions in the market. Read what customers iBASE and Quixant have to say about AMD Embedded Solutions.
