ARBOR Introduces the EmETXe-a58M0 COM Express® Compact Type 6 Module with 2nd Generation AMD G-series SoC
ARBOR Technology, a leading provider of embedded computing solutions, announces the release of the ARBOR EmETXe-a58M0 COM Express Type 6 Module. This module is based on the 2nd generation AMD Embedded G-Series SOC (System-on-Chip) processors. Compared to the current AMD Embedded G-Series SOC platform, they provide higher performance and a lower power draw thanks to an improved Jaguar+ CPU architecture and AMD Radeon™ 8000 graphics core. Graphics engine speed has been increased up to 800 MHz and the DDR3 interface up to 1866 MT/s. A new function of the G-Series includes Core Boost Frequency to ensure appropriate processor overclocking.
The 2nd generation AMD G-Series SOC on COM Express Compact modules is designed for low-power embedded applications. Compared to the previous AMD Embedded G-Series SOC, it provides higher performance per watt and lower TDP. This fanless module design is therefore ideal for cost-sensitive applications in the control and automation industry, digital gaming, communication infrastructure and graphics-intensive devices such as thin clients, digital displays or medical-imaging equipment.
The integrated AMD Radeon™ graphics supports DirectX® 11.1 and OpenGL 4.2 for fast 2D and 3D image display. OpenCL 1.2 is also supported, enabling the execution of program code by the GPUs. The range of available graphics interfaces includes VGA and DisplayPort 1.2 as well as DVI/HDMI 1.4a for the direct control of two independent displays.
The COM Express Compact module provides 2x USB 3.0 SuperSpeed, 7x USB 2.0 ports, seven PCI Express x1 Gen 2 lanes, two SATA 6Gb/s ports, one SATA port, shared with optional SATA NANDrive, one Micro SD socket and a Gigabit Ethernet interface. ACPI 3.0 CPU power management and high-definition audio complete the feature set.
