Hectronic announces two boards with second generation AMD Embedded G-Series
H6071 (Qseven) and H6068 (COM Express) are based on the so-called Steppe Eagle processors which are added to the options within AMD Embedded G-Series SOC for increased performance.
Uppsala, Sweden, June 12, 2015:
Hectronic, a specialist in embedded computer development and manufacturing, has announced the COM modules H6071 (Qseven form factor) and H6068 (COM Express form factor) both based on second generation AMD Embedded G-Series SOC, also called Steppe Eagle. Steppe Eagle processors offer increased computing and graphics performance.
The modules are suitable for embedded applications that require powerful CPU and graphics performance in combination with low power consumption and extremely compact size. The GPU can be used for general purpose GPU computing (GPGPU) by taking advantage of AMD’s Open CL support. H6071 and H6068 target applications such as digital signage solutions, high-end HMIs, portable test and measurement applications as well as imaging and vision systems based on for instance high-end cameras.
The modules have rich sets of I/O interfaces including including PCI Express, USB 3.0 and SATA III ports. Dual independent displays can be connected to dual 24-bit LVDS and one of the new digital display interfaces DVl, HDMI or DisplayPort. Up to 4GB onboard soldered DDRIII DRAM, as well as an onboard soldered BGA SATA Flash SSD of up to 32GB are supported.
Versions of H6071 and H6068 specified for operation in an industrial temperature range (-40°C to 85°C) are available.
Technical support is provided directly from Hectronic’s development team in Uppsala, near Stockholm, Sweden.
