Dev Kit Weekly: DFI's AMD R1000 Series-Powered GHF51 Development Kit

May 29, 2020 Brandon Lewis

AMD fans are going to love this week’s kit. The GHF51 is purportedly the smallest single-board computer to sport the Ryzen Embedded R1000 SoC, measuring in at 84 mm by 55 mm. That makes this little guy “Raspberry Pi-sized”, but unlike the Raspberry Pi the GHF51 is an industrial-grade prototyping platform.

The robustness of the DFI GHF51 begins with the processor, which is the aforementioned AMD Ryzen R1000 Embedded Series platform announced in the first half of 2019. 14 nm Ryzen R1000 series platforms integrate two AMD Zen CPU cores with up to four threads, alongside three of the company’s Vega GPUs in single-chip solutions that sport TDPs of 25 W all the way down to just 6 W.

If you’re interested in learning more about the GHF51, check it out on DFI's website or purchase it directly from DFI for $333.

Or, if you’re strapped for cash in these uncertain times, take a shot at this week’s raffle and you just might get this one for free. Enter the raffle below.
