amd launched its new g-series platform codename ebrazos. it’s a continuation of the amd fusion family of apus (accelerated processing unit.) the platform can have a single or dual low power bobcat cpu, with a powerful gpu capable of supporting microsoft directx 11, unified video decoder 3.0 (h264, mpeg2, vc-1, wmv and divx hardware decode accelerator), 3d visual effects and open-gl and open-cl. a distinguishing feature of ebrazos is the low power consumption (9 watts for single core and 18 watts for dual) together with a very high end gpu. the target market is the digital signage, laptops, casino gaming, set top boxes, etc.
the recommended controller hub for this platform is a55e which provides gigabit ethernet, mac and raid support.
congatec provided conga-baf in com-express form factor, fujitsu d3003-s in mini-itx form factor, and also kontron announced the debut of its g-series support on com-express in embedded world trade show in nuremberg.
