The AMD Ryzen Embedded V2000 Series uses innovative 7nm process technology. The ‘Zen 2′ architecture and high-performance AMD Radeon graphics package provides both performance and low power consumption. The optimised architecture feature a performance improvement of 15 percent in Instructions Per Clock (IPC). A higher number of cores provide up to 30 percent better single-thread CPU performance and up to 40 percent enhanced graphics performance over the previous generation.
The first samples of the new models – the SOM-6872 (COM Express Module) and the AIMB-229 (mini iTX) – will be available at the start of 2021. Both boards are based around an AMD Embedded Ryzen 7nm SoC with AMD V2000 APU and eight cores with 16 threads. TDP rating of 12~25W and 35~54W are available, using FP5 BGA footprint. Each system has a 7th Generation RADEON Graphics Core, that has up to seven computing units running at 1.6GHz. Decode & Encode for H.265 are supplied as standard with 10b HEVC. To support the processors, up to 64GB of dual channel memory can be added.
The SOM-6872 has up to three DDI ports; DP1.4/ HDCP 2.3; HDMI HDCP 1.4 & 2.3; LVDS 2-CH 18/24-bit; eDP1.3 and VGA.
The AIMB-229 comes with two DP++ (via USB-C connector); two HDMI 2.0; two LAN Ports; eight USB Ports; two M.2 Slots; 16-bit GPIO; six COM Ports, and TPM.
FurtherV2000 products will be launched by Advantech through 2021.
“Our customers rely on us to deliver innovative embedded products with superior performance and reliable hardware design to accelerate the revolution of Edge AIoT applications. The planned longevity with CPU and GPU integration of the V2000 Series from AMD will help us continue to offer leading performance to the embedded market,” said Rex Lee, Director at Advantech.
