AMD has replenished its product line with a new hybrid processor with appreciably low power consumption. G-T16R belongs to the Embedded G-Series line and is a part of AMD Brazos 2.0 platform. This APU is primarily destined for the embedded systems employment. AMD representatives stress out that G-T16R is an appropriate solution to be used in transport equipment, trade and cash desk stations, medical electronics, as well as in industrial administrative systems.
The company has managed to design its hybrid processor in a way to make it more saving than any other product of the same line. Thus, the average power consumption level equals to 2.3 W with Thermal Design Profile (TDP) of 4.5 W. Despite such low-power index, G-T16R is able to secure high performance showings which exceed the showings of the predecessor Geode LX three times as much. To continue the comparison, the new model consumes 7% less power than Geode LX but, at the same time, takes 58% less space on the motherboard than the previous product.
AMD G-T16R is able to support DDR3 memory type which beneficially affects the speed and volume. The APU is characterized by the availability of 32 bit PCI interface and ISA bus with DMA. Such specifications provide for the possibilities of more efficient system update. G-T16R is notable for the support of Green Hills Integrity, Windows Embedded Compact 7, and Express Logic ThreadX. Moreover, it can support VGA, LVDS connections used in older systems, as well as DVI, HDMI, and DisplayPort options.
Due to the efficient integrated graphics, APU G-T16R ensures the threefold performance excellence as compared with the models of the previous generations. It is also known to support OpenGL 4.0, OpenCL 1.1, and DirectX 11 technologies.
Currently, APU G-T16R is already embedded in products of such companies as Arbor EmETX-a55E0 (CPU module), Aewin PM-6161 PC/104 (board), Advantech PCM-3356 PC/104 (CPU module), and other AMD’s partners.
