AMD’s Embedded processors are integrated into end products by hundreds of companies in Taiwan. We are committed to helping these customers create feature-rich solutions that deliver powerful performance and vivid visual experiences to expand the possible for them and their end users. As in Taiwan, companies around the globe are deploying AMD Embedded solutions to enable new products across a range of markets including gaming, thin clients, medical imaging, digital signage and more.
Taiwanese companies gravitate toward solutions with outstanding price per performance, low power consumption, support for Linux operating systems and that offer open source software. These attributes help Taiwanese companies deliver differentiated solutions, and play directly to AMD’s strengths. For example, GPUOpen, which grew out of AMD’s Radeon Technologies Group, provides innovative computer generated imagery and GPU computing applications for great performance and lifelike experiences using open development tools and software. GPUOpen is widely used in applications ranging from medical imaging to gaming. AMD has also shown great commitment to Linux through open source drivers and a wider set of programming tools. In addition, the Radeon Open Compute Platform (“ROCm”) platform for high-performance GPU computing opens new frontiers of what developers can accomplish.
Below are examples of key customers in Taiwan that are using AMD solutions to create groundbreaking solutions.
As a manufacturer of industrial panel PCs and digital signage that targets the medical, retail, casino gaming and financial sectors, iBASE requires a powerful processor with immersive graphics capabilities that can handle a variety of applications. By leveraging the AMD G-Series SoC to power its 1850 multi-touch intelligent bedside terminal, iBASE can enable patients to engage in online gaming and physicians to examine 3D scans. The SI-60E 8K video wall player was the winner of the 2016 Taiwan Excellence Award and the 2015 Computex Best Choice Award.
Delivering advanced compute and display capabilities at a low TDP is a priority for Portwell, supplier of form factor boards for medical OEMs. The company integrates AMD’s Embedded CPUs and GPUs into their ComE boards to enable high-performance and low-power medical equipment such as ultrasounds, X-ray, endoscopes and more.
Enabling a rich user experience for both remote applications such as thin clients and high-performance platforms such as point of sale (POS) systems is key for global intelligent solutions and services company Clientron. This AMD Embedded customer designs products for the retail, hospitality and finance markets, among others. Clientron utilizes AMD’s Embedded G-Series SoC to enable HD multimedia capability and stunning graphics in its B600 thin client.
AMD delivers unprecedented choice when it comes to selecting an embedded processor, offering scalability and ease of migration between devices. This allows customers to “right-size” processors to meet their specific product needs while reducing the number of platforms they need to build to meet a variety of applications. Our Embedded G-Series and R-Series SoCs pack major processing power in a small platform, with pin compatible products ranging from 5-35W that can scale to meet a diverse set of customer needs. What’s more, they deliver stunning multimedia graphics, 4K resolution and support for multiple HD displays, all while maximizing performance per watt to conserve energy and reduce system costs.
