‚ÄúAs the lea¬≠ding Com¬≠pu¬≠ter-on-Modu¬≠le ven¬≠dor in EMEA, con¬≠ga¬≠tec pro¬≠vi¬≠des sta¬≠te-of-the-art embedded com¬≠pu¬≠ting tech¬≠no¬≠lo¬≠gy with a high inno¬≠va¬≠ti¬≠on level and excel¬≠lent per¬≠for¬≠mance to its cus¬≠to¬≠mers,‚ÄĚ said Chris¬≠ti¬≠an Eder, direc¬≠tor of mar¬≠ke¬≠ting, con¬≠ga¬≠tec. ‚ÄúThe¬≠r¬≠e¬≠fo¬≠re, the new ground¬≠brea¬≠king AMD Ryzen Embedded V1000 with striking ‚ÄėVega‚Äô archi¬≠tec¬≠tu¬≠re-based gra¬≠phics is an ide¬≠al choice for our exten¬≠si¬≠ve port¬≠fo¬≠lio of stan¬≠dar¬≠di¬≠zed Computer-on-Modules.‚ÄĚ


‚ÄúThe new AMD Ryzen Embedded V1000 pro¬≠vi¬≠des grea¬≠ter fle¬≠xi¬≠bi¬≠li¬≠ty in how we use the DFI Mini-ITX board to tar¬≠get cus¬≠to¬≠mers in visual¬≠ly inten¬≠si¬≠ve fields such as gam¬≠ing and digi¬≠tal signage,‚ÄĚ said Cly¬≠de Chen, pro¬≠duct mana¬≠ger, DFI. ‚ÄúWith the 14nm archi¬≠tec¬≠tu¬≠re and powerful AMD Rade¬≠on ‚ÄėVega‚Äô gra¬≠phics in the AMD Ryzen Embedded V1000, we plan to deli¬≠ver supe¬≠ri¬≠or gra¬≠phics per¬≠for¬≠mance and CPU pro¬≠ces¬≠sing on a sin¬≠gle chip that helps to lower the total cost of owner¬≠ship for our end cus¬≠to¬≠mers. Fea¬≠turing up to four simul¬≠ta¬≠neous nati¬≠ve-dis¬≠play out¬≠puts, the AMD Ryzen Embedded V1000 pro¬≠ces¬≠sor offers sca¬≠la¬≠bi¬≠li¬≠ty and power opti¬≠ons to meet various ther¬≠mal requirements.‚ÄĚ


‚ÄúThe next-gene¬≠ra¬≠ti¬≠on per¬≠for¬≠mance and sca¬≠la¬≠bi¬≠li¬≠ty deli¬≠ver¬≠ed by the AMD Ryzen Embedded V1000 and AMD EPYC Embedded 3000 pro¬≠ces¬≠sors trans¬≠la¬≠tes to real-world dif¬≠fe¬≠ren¬≠tia¬≠ti¬≠on and bene¬≠fits for our cus¬≠to¬≠mers across net¬≠wor¬≠king and digi¬≠tal media appli¬≠ca¬≠ti¬≠ons.‚ÄĚ said Jack¬≠son Mao, pro¬≠duct plan¬≠ning divi¬≠si¬≠on vice pre¬≠si¬≠dent, IBASE. ‚ÄúWe deve¬≠lo¬≠ped the SI-324 Digi¬≠tal Signage Play¬≠er with the AMD Ryzen Embedded V1000 to empower busi¬≠nesses with a stun¬≠ning new level of video per¬≠for¬≠mance, mul¬≠ti-dis¬≠play sup¬≠port and fle¬≠xi¬≠ble power con¬≠sump¬≠ti¬≠on to sup¬≠port rich mul¬≠ti¬≠me¬≠dia capa¬≠bi¬≠li¬≠ties. Addi¬≠tio¬≠nal¬≠ly, we are lever¬≠aging the AMD EPYC Embedded 3000 to deve¬≠lop agi¬≠le net¬≠wor¬≠king solu¬≠ti¬≠ons that bring the effi¬≠ci¬≠en¬≠ci¬≠es of the dat¬≠a¬≠cen¬≠ter to main¬≠stream ser¬≠ver net¬≠wor¬≠king systems.‚ÄĚ


‚ÄúWe expect to see many new oppor¬≠tu¬≠ni¬≠ties for our pro¬≠ducts with the new AMD Ryzen Embedded V1000 pro¬≠ces¬≠sors in the indus¬≠tri¬≠al and embedded fields inclu¬≠ding medi¬≠cal, digi¬≠tal signage and gam¬≠ing,‚ÄĚ said Peter Muel¬≠ler, direc¬≠tor of pro¬≠duct, Boards and Modu¬≠les, Kon¬≠tron. ‚ÄúThe¬≠se appli¬≠ca¬≠ti¬≠ons requi¬≠re high-per¬≠for¬≠mance com¬≠pu¬≠ting in a cost sen¬≠si¬≠ti¬≠ve envi¬≠ron¬≠ment, and we are very con¬≠fi¬≠dent that the per¬≠for¬≠mance and value of the AMD Ryzen Embedded V1000 will enable our COM Express com¬≠pact com¬≠pu¬≠ter modu¬≠les and mini-ITX embedded mother¬≠board to reach a broa¬≠der base of customers.‚ÄĚ

‚ÄúWe are curr¬≠ent¬≠ly deve¬≠lo¬≠ping a new edge com¬≠pu¬≠ting pro¬≠duct line that ‚Äď after doing exten¬≠si¬≠ve bench¬≠mark stu¬≠dies ‚Äď is par¬≠ti¬≠cu¬≠lar¬≠ly useful when desi¬≠gned with the AMD EPYC Embedded 3000 pro¬≠ces¬≠sor for a spe¬≠ci¬≠fic use case,‚ÄĚ said Benoit Robert, vice pre¬≠si¬≠dent, Stra¬≠tegy and Mar¬≠ke¬≠ting, Com¬≠mu¬≠ni¬≠ca¬≠ti¬≠ons Busi¬≠ness, Kon¬≠tron. ‚ÄúThis is being sup¬≠port¬≠ed with an enga¬≠ge¬≠ment with a major cus¬≠to¬≠mer and we plan to have tri¬≠al seed units available by Q2.‚ÄĚ 


‚ÄúMedi¬≠cal ima¬≠ging has great¬≠ly bene¬≠fi¬≠ted from recent advance¬≠ments in gra¬≠phics and dis¬≠plays, pro¬≠vi¬≠ding more cla¬≠ri¬≠ty and a fas¬≠ter time to dia¬≠gno¬≠sis. The enhan¬≠ced reso¬≠lu¬≠ti¬≠on of the new AMD Ryzen Embedded V1000 helps to fur¬≠ther impro¬≠ve the cer¬≠tain¬≠ty of dia¬≠gno¬≠sis and approach to pro¬≠ce¬≠du¬≠res by offe¬≠ring crys¬≠tal-clear ima¬≠ging,‚ÄĚ said Ping Huang, vice pre¬≠si¬≠dent, Med¬≠well. ‚ÄúThe AMD Ryzen Embedded V1000 is also available in a com¬≠pact form fac¬≠tor with a 25W to 35W con¬≠fi¬≠gura¬≠ble TDP, making it a com¬≠pel¬≠ling pro¬≠ces¬≠sor for both our MEDM-B603 board desi¬≠gned for ultra¬≠sounds and our MEDM-B603 board desi¬≠gned for ultra¬≠sounds and sur¬≠gi¬≠cal navi¬≠ga¬≠ti¬≠on equipment.‚ÄĚ
