Kontron brings AMD Ryzen Embedded V1000 processors to COM Express and Mini-ITX

Kontron announces modules and boards based on the new AMD Ryzen Embedded V1000 processors at Embedded World 2018. Kontron uses the platform for formfactor COM Express Compact and Mini-ITX. The new AMD Ryzen Embedded V1000 processors combine high-performance x86 "Zen" CPUs with advanced "Vega" GPUs into a single chip as an accelerated processing unit (APU), offering customers an ideal foundation for digital casino gaming, medical imaging, communication, digital signage and more. Kontron displays a COM Express board with the new AMD Ryzen V1000 processors at Embedded World.

The AMD Ryzen Embedded V1000 processors are made in the 14 nm FinFET process and deliver up to 2X more performance than previous generations. Power consumption ranges from 12 to 54 watts. The L3 cache enables efficient portioning of data between the storage cores. The universal DDR4 3200 non-ECC/ECC support for dedicated APUs supports high-performance applications. Port options include broad I/O ranges with PCIe Gen3, USB 3.1, SATA and Gigabit Ethernet as well as USB-C.

With up to 11 Compute Units and support for up to four independent displays with up to 4K resolution, the AMD Ryzen Embedded V1000 processors offer up to 3X more GPU performance than competitive solutions. Additionally, the new processors enable 10-bit decoding, H.265 (HEVC) 10-bit decoding and 8-bit encoding via VP9.

The AMD Ryzen Embedded V1000 processors also come with numerous security features, including an on-board secure processor for crypto coprocessing, Secure Memory Encryption to help guard against unwanted physical storage access, as well as Secure Encrypted Virtualization for encrypting virtual machine storage to help protect it against attacks from administrators and application code.

Kontron modules and boards based on the AMD Ryzen Embedded V1000 processors support the Kontron APPROTECT Security Solution. Based on an integrated WIBU-SYSTEMS security chip and in tandem with a specifically developed software framework, it provides IP and copy/reverse engineering protection. Kontron APPROTECT Licensing also enables new business models such as "pay per use", demo versions for limited time periods, or activation/deactivation functions. AMD offers product availability for up to 10 years, providing customers a long lifecycle support roadmap.
