Embedded R Series

High End Processors

  • True parallel computing performance through Heterogeneous System Architecture (HSA). HSA is an intelligent computing architecture that enables CPU, GPU, and other processors to work in harmony on a single piece of silicon by seamlessly moving the right tasks to the best suited processing element. The Radeon Open Compute Platform (ROCn) adds a rich foundation to advanced computing by seamlessly integrating the CPU and GPU with the goal of solving heterogeneous computing problems.
  • Wide range of products that are suited for 3D, 4K or HD cockpit or ground-based displays with exceptional levels of security and image processing.

Power-Efficient Processors

  • Compelling SWaP (Size, Weight and Power) solutions for real time video in unmanned vehicles/UAVs and Surveillance
  • High quality, smooth, stable real-time computer vision images for military, defense and other mission-critical applications
  • AMD Embedded G-Series APU combines the parallel processing capabilities of a GPU with the serial processing capabilities of a CPU in a small footprint and low-power solution.

Discrete GPUs

  • Ideal for graphics-intensive avionics applications such as geographic information systems,360-degree situation awareness, diminished vision enhancement and more.
  • Using Graphics Core Next (CGN) Architecture, systems are capable of providing superior performance and breathtaking image quality.
  • Combines graphics and parallel processing power on the same chip for outstanding 3D graphics performance.
  • Multi-display technology to drive scalable displays for an eye-catching user experience
  • Intelligent power management, which can enable the GPU to deliver full potential performance while conserving power
