Congatec Puts AMD G-Series SOC 3 watt Processor on Qseven

Press release date: February 25, 2014

The conga-QG requires 33% less power than previous module with AMD G-Series and offers optimized graphics performance

Embedded World, Nuremberg, -- congatec AG, a leading manufacturer of embedded computer modules, is expanding its Qseven product range by adding the AMD Embedded G-Series SOC (System-on-Chip) platform. This single-chip solution combines the improved processing power of the "Jaguar" processor with the graphics core of AMD Radeon™ 8000 technology.

congatec currently offers three processors from the AMD Embedded G-Series SOC platform in the Qseven form factor. The AMD GX-210HA 1.0 GHz dual core (L2 cache 1MB) with 9 watts thermal design power (TDP) and the AMD GX-210JA 1.0 GHz dual core (L2 cache 1MB) with 6 watts TDP and an expected average power consumption of just 3 watts in a standard application  will both be offered. For extreme environments, the module is also available in extended temperature range of -40°C to +85°C featuring the AMD GX-209HA 1.0 GHz dual core (L2 cache 1MB). This AMD G-Series SOC is designed to require 33% less power than previously available AMD G-Series processors.

Users benefit from outstanding multimedia performance, excellent performance-per-watt ratios and flexible task distribution between CPU and GPU. The fanless module design is particularly suitable for cost-sensitive applications in the control and automation industry, digital gaming, communications infrastructures, and graphics-rich devices such as thin clients, digital information boards and medical-imaging equipment.

Thanks to on-board error-correction code (ECC) memory support, the module is also ideal for safety-critical situations and applications in harsh environments. It can be optionally equipped with up to 8 GB ECC DDR3L memory chips. Unlike standard RAM modules, they feature additional functions to check the data flow and adjust it as necessary in order to correct errors. The correction mode of this memory type can detect and correct both single and double bit errors. It therefore differs significantly from the so-called "parity bit", where errors can be detected but not corrected.

The integrated AMD Radeon™ graphics supports DirectX® 11.1, OpenGL 4.2 for fast 2D and 3D imaging, plus OpenCL™ 1.2 to execute program code with the integrated GPUs. The dedicated hardware, Universal Video Decoder 4.2, for the seamless processing of BluRays with HDCP (1080p) decodes H.264, MPEG4, VC-1, MPEG-2 video streams. The available display interfaces include single/dual channel 18/24bit LVDS and DisplayPort 1.2, as well as DVI/HDMI 1.4a for the direct control of two independent displays. DisplayPort 1.2 also supports multi-stream transport (MTS) enabling the control of up to two displays per graphics port in daisy chain mode.

Up to four single (x1) PCI Express Gen 2 Lanes, one USB 3.0 and five USB 2.0 ports, up to two SATA 3 Gb/s ports and a Gigabit Ethernet interface allow for flexible system expansions with high data bandwidths. The congatec board controller, on-module SATA SSD up to 64 GByte, ACPI 3.0 CPU power management and high-definition audio complete the rich feature set of the conga-QG Qseven module.
