congatec and AMD have teamed together to provide extended life cycle support for AMD Geode processor boards from congatec, making them available until the end of 2021.

With the collaboration between congatec and AMD to support the AMD Geode processor line on ETX and XTX modules at least until end of life in 2021, our Computer-on-Module customers benefit from massive life cycle and return on investment improvements for their AMD Geode based product lines,” said Martin Danzer, Director Product Management at congatec. “Supply until 2021 means 16 years long-term availability for the Geode LX, which was introduced by AMD in 2005. This is unique to the embedded x86 processor markets, where processors in general are available for 7 years."

In order to enable this extension, AMD has qualified a non-halogenated substrate with virtually no changes to processor form, fit or function so that all AMD qualification criteria will be met. congatec modules with the new Geode processor samples are available now under identical product order numbers.

The following products are supported:

  • Module Form factor Processor RAM Power consumption
  • conga-XLX XTX AMD Geode LX 800 1 GB DDR3/PC2700 5 W (typical)
  • conga-ELX ETX AMD Geode LX 800 1 GB PC2700 5 W (typical)
  • conga-ELXeco ETX AMD Geode LX 800 256 MB DRAM 5 W (typical)
