AMD Geode™ GX Single Board Computer Reference Design Kit
Design Without Compromise
Get to market quickly with a powerful, compact x86 RDK Tool
The AMD Geode™ GX Single Board Computer (SBC) Reference Design Kit (RDK) is a compact, low-power, and high-performance tool developed to enable the next generation of single-board computing and network appliances. Designed to deliver a low total cost of ownership, this RDK is optimized to provide value through all phases of the design and development cycle, and to serve as a powerful reference design tool that's virtually manufacture-ready.
Powerful capabilities with a small form factor
The AMD Geode GX SBC reference design kit is based on, 4th generation RDK technology, and provides a complete system design package that gives designers flexibility, versatility, and enhanced capabilities, all in a small-sized package that measures approximately 5.5" x 5".
The RDK is driven by an AMD Geode GX email@example.comW processor* that delivers the flexibility of the x86 instruction set with the power to run current operating systems. The processor is complemented by the CS5536 companion chip, which provides general I/O support, including USB 2.0, audio, and ATA 100.
Lead-free, four-layer technology
The AMD Geode GX SBC RDK is designed and produced to meet the latest international standards for lead-free components, which enables you to create new products with assurance. New four-layer device technology leads to lower production and development costs, which drive toward low overall total cost of ownership for end products that feature AMD x86 technology.
