The AMD Geode™ GX DB533 development board is a high-performance tool designed to enable developers to write and test software code and to simulate hardware for mobile, thin clients and other applications. The GX DB533 development board consists of two separate components: the CPU module board and the base board. This configuration, which can be easily incorporated into a finished product without modification, enables developers to quickly create a wide range of products targeted to many applications.
AMD Geode™ Solutions have received new model numbers to better reflect total performance beyond just megahertz. This presentation of attributes gives designers greater understanding of the capabilities of AMD Geode Solutions.
Using the AMD Geode™ GX DB533 development board, developers can leverage the two-board configuration for maximum design flexibility. Different versions of the CPU module board are available - GX DB533-TC for CRT interface or the GX DB533-TT for TFT interface. Users can easily develop a separate base board to use with either CPU module.
The design of the GX DB533 development board is based on Advantech's SOM 144 interconnection methodology. The entire system can be purchased directly from AMD, or individual component boards can be purchased from Advantech. System BIOS is provided by Insyde Software's XpressROM (on board) or General Software's Embedded BIOS (on CD).
