Medi­cal ima­ging has great­ly bene­fi­ted from recent advan­ce­ments in gra­phics and dis­plays, pro­vi­ding more cla­ri­ty and a fas­ter time to dia­gno­sis. The enhan­ced reso­lu­ti­on of the new AMD Ryzen Embed­ded V1000 helps to fur­ther impro­ve the cer­tain­ty of dia­gno­sis and approach to pro­ce­du­res by offe­ring crys­tal-clear ima­ging,” said Ping Huang, vice pre­si­dent, Med­well. “The AMD Ryzen Embed­ded V1000 is also avail­ab­le in a com­pact form fac­tor with a 25W to 35W con­fi­gura­ble TDP, making it a com­pel­ling pro­ces­sor for both our MEDM-B603 board desi­gned for ultra­sounds and our MEDM-B603 board desi­gned for ultra­sounds and sur­gi­cal navi­ga­ti­on equip­ment.”

Men­tor Gra­phics

Men­tor is exci­ted to con­ti­nue its col­la­bo­ra­ti­on with AMD to now pro­vi­de Embed­ded Linux solu­ti­ons for the new AMD Ryzen Embed­ded V1000 and AMD EPYC Embed­ded 3000 pro­ces­sors. The sui­te of secu­ri­ty fea­tures that AMD enab­les for the­se pro­ces­sors is well ali­gned with the exten­si­ve set of secu­ri­ty fea­tures avail­ab­le in Mentor’s Linux pro­duc­ts,” said Scot Mor­ri­son, ‎gene­ral mana­ger, Embed­ded Plat­form Solu­ti­ons, Men­tor. “With embed­ded Linux solu­ti­ons that sca­le across the broad ran­ge of power and per­for­mance enab­led by the­se new AMD pro­ces­sors, this part­nership can con­ti­nue to pro­vi­de signi­fi­cant value to our custo­mers, and enab­le a host of con­nec­ted, secu­re devices uti­li­zing the out­stan­ding com­pu­ta­tio­nal through­put of the new AMD pro­duc­ts.”

Sap­phi­re

Sap­phi­re Tech­no­lo­gy is a long­stan­ding AMD part­ner and lea­ding sup­plier of com­pon­ents and solu­ti­ons for a broad ran­ge of con­su­mer and embed­ded pro­duc­ts, with exper­ti­se in next-genera­ti­on mother­boards and gra­phics add-in boards for dis­play-centric app­li­ca­ti­ons,” said Adri­an Thomp­son, vice pre­si­dent of mar­ke­ting, Sap­phi­re Tech­no­lo­gy. “By lever­aging the new AMD Ryzen Embed­ded V1000 as a key pil­lar in our latest Sap­phi­re board, we can increa­se CPU and GPU per­for­mance in an inte­gra­ted 5x5 inch form fac­tor, dri­ving extra­or­di­na­ry gra­phics capa­bi­li­ties, sup­port for up to four simul­ta­ne­ous dis­plays in 4K reso­lu­ti­on, and unpre­ce­den­ted per­for­mance-per-watt for our custo­mers.”

SECO

We are plea­sed to announ­ce the SECO COMe-B75-CT6 modu­le based on the new power­house AMD Ryzen Embed­ded V1000 pro­ces­sors, which rep­res­ents a signi­fi­cant mile­stone in our com­pa­ny road­map,” said Gian­lu­ca Vene­re, direc­tor of glo­bal sales and chief stra­te­gy offi­cer, SECO. “With an extra­or­di­na­ry balan­ce bet­ween per­for­mance, gra­phics and power con­sump­ti­on, the AMD Ryzen Embed­ded V1000 will be the flagship foun­da­ti­on for our COM Express™ line of pro­duc­ts, and the first in a long series of AMD-based SECO solu­ti­ons.”

Cautionary Statement

This press release con­tains for­ward-loo­king state­ments con­cer­ning Advan­ced Micro Devices, Inc. (AMD) inclu­ding the fea­tures, func­tio­n­a­li­ty, avai­la­bi­li­ty, timing, deploy­ment, and expec­ted bene­fits of the EPYC™ Embed­ded 3000 pro­ces­sor and Ryzen™ Embed­ded V1000 pro­ces­sor and the pro­duc­ts being deve­lo­ped by custo­mers based on the EPYC™ Embed­ded 3000 pro­ces­sor and Ryzen™ Embed­ded V1000 pro­ces­sor as well as the expec­ted sup­port from major eco­sys­tem part­ners, which are made pur­suant to the Safe Har­bor pro­vi­si­ons of the Pri­va­te Secu­ri­ties Liti­ga­ti­on Reform Act of 1995. For­ward-loo­king state­ments are com­mon­ly iden­ti­fied by words such as “would,” “intends,” “belie­ves,” “expec­ts,” “may,” “will,” “should,” “seeks,” “intends,” “plans,” “pro for­ma,” “esti­ma­tes,” “anti­ci­pa­tes,” or the nega­ti­ve of the­se words and phra­ses, other varia­ti­ons of the­se words and phra­ses or com­pa­ra­ble ter­mi­no­lo­gy. Inves­tors are cau­tio­ned that the for­ward-loo­king state­ments in this docu­ment are based on cur­rent beliefs, assump­ti­ons and expec­ta­ti­ons, speak only as of the date of this docu­ment and invol­ve risks and uncer­tain­ties that could cau­se actu­al results to dif­fer mate­ri­al­ly from cur­rent expec­ta­ti­ons. Such state­ments are sub­ject to cer­tain known and unknown risks and uncer­tain­ties, many of which are dif­fi­cult to pre­dict and gene­ral­ly bey­ond AMD’s con­trol, that could cau­se actu­al results and other future events to dif­fer mate­ri­al­ly from tho­se expres­sed in, or implied or pro­jec­ted by, the for­ward-loo­king infor­ma­ti­on and state­ments. Mate­ri­al fac­tors that could cau­se actu­al results to dif­fer mate­ri­al­ly from cur­rent expec­ta­ti­ons inclu­de, wit­hout limi­ta­ti­on, the fol­lo­wing: Intel Corporation’s domi­nan­ce of the micropro­ces­sor mar­ket and its aggres­si­ve busi­ness prac­tices may limit AMD’s abi­li­ty to com­pe­te effec­tively; AMD has a wafer sup­ply agree­ment with GF with obli­ga­ti­ons to purcha­se all of its micropro­ces­sor and APU pro­duct requi­re­ments, and a cer­tain por­ti­on of its GPU pro­duct requi­re­ments, from GLOBALFOUNDRIES Inc. (GF) with limi­ted excep­ti­ons. If GF is not able to satis­fy AMD’s manu­fac­tu­ring requi­re­ments, its busi­ness could be adver­se­ly impac­ted; AMD reli­es on third par­ties to manu­fac­tu­re its pro­duc­ts, and if they are unab­le to do so on a time­ly basis in suf­fi­ci­ent quan­ti­ties and using com­pe­ti­ti­ve tech­no­lo­gies, AMD’s busi­ness could be mate­ri­al­ly adver­se­ly affec­ted; fail­u­re to achie­ve expec­ted manu­fac­tu­ring yields for AMD’s pro­duc­ts could nega­tively impact its finan­ci­al results; the suc­cess of AMD’s busi­ness is depen­dent upon its abi­li­ty to intro­du­ce pro­duc­ts on a time­ly basis with fea­tures and per­for­mance levels that pro­vi­de value to its custo­mers while sup­por­ting and coin­ci­ding with signi­fi­cant indus­try tran­si­ti­ons; if AMD can­not gene­ra­te suf­fi­ci­ent reve­nue and ope­ra­ting cash flow or obtain exter­nal finan­cing, it may face a cash short­fall and be unab­le to make all of its plan­ned invest­ments in rese­arch and deve­lop­ment or other stra­te­gic invest­ments; the loss of a signi­fi­cant custo­mer may have a mate­ri­al adver­se effect on AMD; AMD’s rece­ipt of reve­nue from its semi-custom SoC pro­duc­ts is depen­dent upon its tech­no­lo­gy being desi­gned into third-par­ty pro­duc­ts and the suc­cess of tho­se pro­duc­ts; glo­bal eco­no­mic uncer­tain­ty may adver­se­ly impact AMD’s busi­ness and ope­ra­ting results; the mar­kets in which AMD’s pro­duc­ts are sold are high­ly com­pe­ti­ti­ve; AMD may not be able to gene­ra­te suf­fi­ci­ent cash to ser­vice its debt obli­ga­ti­ons or meet its working capi­tal requi­re­ments; AMD has a lar­ge amount of indeb­ted­ness which could adver­se­ly affect its finan­ci­al posi­ti­on and pre­vent it from imple­men­ting its stra­te­gy or ful­fil­ling its con­trac­tu­al obli­ga­ti­ons; the agree­ments gover­ning AMD’s notes and the Secu­red Revol­ving Line of Credit impo­se restric­tions on AMD that may adver­se­ly affect its abi­li­ty to ope­ra­te its busi­ness; the pro­duc­ts that AMD sells are com­plex and may be sub­ject to secu­ri­ty vul­nera­bi­li­ties that could result in, among other things, the loss, cor­rup­ti­on or misu­se of con­fi­den­ti­al data by unaut­ho­ri­zed third par­ties or sys­tem per­for­mance issu­es. AMD’s efforts to pre­vent and address secu­ri­ty vul­nera­bi­li­ties can be cost­ly and may be par­ti­al­ly effec­tive or not suc­cess­ful at all; AMD’s issu­an­ce to West Coast Hitech L.P. (WCH) of war­rants to purcha­se 75 mil­li­on sha­res of its com­mon stock, if and when exer­cis­ed, will dilu­te the ownership inte­rests of its exis­ting stock­hol­ders, and the con­ver­si­on of the 2.125% Con­ver­ti­ble Seni­or Notes due 2026 may dilu­te the ownership inte­rest of its exis­ting stock­hol­ders, or may other­wi­se depress the pri­ce of its com­mon stock; uncer­tain­ties invol­ving the orde­ring and ship­ment of AMD’s pro­duc­ts could mate­ri­al­ly adver­se­ly affect it; the demand for AMD’s pro­duc­ts depends in part on the mar­ket con­di­ti­ons in the indus­tries into which they are sold. Fluc­tua­ti­ons in demand for AMD’s pro­duc­ts or a mar­ket decli­ne in any of the­se indus­tries could have a mate­ri­al adver­se effect on its results of ope­ra­ti­ons; AMD’s abi­li­ty to design and intro­du­ce new pro­duc­ts in a time­ly man­ner is depen­dent upon third-par­ty intel­lec­tu­al pro­per­ty; AMD depends on third-par­ty com­pa­nies for the design, manu­fac­tu­re and sup­ply of mother­boards, soft­ware and other com­pu­ter plat­form com­pon­ents to sup­port its busi­ness; if AMD loses Micro­soft Corporation’s sup­port for its pro­duc­ts or other soft­ware ven­dors do not design and deve­lop soft­ware to run on AMD’s pro­duc­ts, its abi­li­ty to sell its pro­duc­ts could be mate­ri­al­ly adver­se­ly affec­ted; and AMD’s reli­an­ce on third-par­ty dis­tri­bu­tors and AIB part­ners sub­jec­ts it to cer­tain risks.  Inves­tors are urged to review in detail the risks and uncer­tain­ties in AMD’s Secu­ri­ties and Exchan­ge Com­mis­si­on filings, inclu­ding but not limi­ted to AMD’s Quar­ter­ly Report on Form 10-Q for the quar­ter ended Sep­tem­ber 30, 2017.
