Computing and graphics solutions company, Advanced Micro Devices, Inc (AMD),announced it is enabling an open ecosystem for OEMs to create and customize high performance Mini PCs, powered by AMD Ryzen Embedded V1000 and R1000 processors.

ASRock Industrial, EEPD, OnLogic and Simply NUC, are the first OEMs to offer and sell these new Mini PC platforms for the industrial, media, communications and enterprise markets. These companies are giving customers an open and customizable platform based on high-performance CPU/GPU processor with expansive peripheral support, in-depth security features and a planned 10-year processor availability.

Driving a Diverse Hardware Ecosystem

These new Mini PCs, powered by AMD Ryzen Embedded, have access to an existing embedded processor ecosystem that supports open software standards, while providing OEMs the capability to create customizable platforms.

The growing list of hardware partners creating Mini PCs powered by AMD Ryzen Embedded includes:

ASRock Industrial and its 4X4 BOX - R1000V and 4X4 BOX - V1000M systems aim to deliver cost-effective, high-performance and versatile embedded Mini PCs for home entertainment, business and industrial applications.

EEPD with the SBC PROFIVE NUCV and SBC PROFIVE NUCR embedded Mini PC product family which is characterized by high-performance computing requiring minimal space.

OnLogic and the ML100G-40 and MC510-40. These are the first two systems in a line of AMD powered small form-factor computers that leverage the reliability and lifecycle benefits of OnLogic's expertise in building industrial and rugged devices. 

Simply NUC with the Sequoia V8 and Sequoia V6, which are rugged, long-lasting units to power digital signage displays, electronic kiosks, data arrays, and other free-standing utilities.

Supporting Open Software

Mini PCs powered by AMD Ryzen Embedded processors support a list of software partners with pre-validated packages based on open source software such as, Radeon Open Compute (ROCm), and OpenCL. These Mini PCs can run software for machine vision, object detection, edge inference, and analytics from AMD software ecosystem partners.

AMD Ryzen Embedded Processor Overview

The AMD Ryzen Embedded processors bring together AMD "Zen" CPU and "Vega" GPU architectures in an integrated SoC solution for high-performance computing.

The AMD Ryzen Embedded V1000 and R1000 processors provide scalable solutions from 6 watts to 54 watts in a pin compatible package that powers high resolution, 4K multi-display configurability, high-performance 3D graphics.
