The company has refreshed its AMD Embedded G-Series J Family of processors, formerly codenamed "Prairie Falcon" now offering pin compatibility with the higher performance AMD Embedded R-Series SoC, formerly codenamed "Merlin Falcon."
These midrange AMD Embedded G-Series J SoCs feature 2X "Excavator" x86 cores with 1MB shared L2 cache. Built-in AMD Radeon R4E graphics with up to 3CU's support DirectX 12. The SoC supports single channel 64-bit DDR4 or DDR3 memory and screen resolutions up to 4K at 30Hz, along with 4K x 2K H.265 decode capability with 10-bit compatibility and multi format encode and decode.
The SoCs can be used in a variety of applications in vertical markets such as thin client, digital signage, casino gaming, retail point of sale (POS), industrial/automation, military/aerospace, smart camera, set-top box (STB) and networking/communications equipment.
Additionally, the upgraded AMD Embedded G-Series J Family of processors can be used in devices such as thin clients with exacting energy efficiency requirements, supporting thermal design profiles (TDPs) measuring less than 10W.
