AMD announces two new Dual-core processors for the ASB1 BGA embedded client platform
AMD today announced immediate availability of two new dual-core, 18W TDP processors for the highly-scalable ASB1 BGA embedded client platform. The AMD Turion Neo X2 processor L625 and the AMD Athlon Neo X2 processor L325 deliver PC-caliber performance in a very low power envelope and with an embedded-friendly ball grid array (BGA) package. This embedded client solution is ideal for traditional embedded applications such as single board computing and thin client systems, as well as markets for self-service kiosks, point of sale machines and digital signage. The ball grid array (BGA) package helps alleviate potential reliability issues for systems that are deployed in rugged environments and has a low z-height that is designed to enable thin, compact enclosures.
The addition of these new dual-core processors to the ASB1 BGA platform can help increase the performance of existing single-core designs. When combined with either the AMD 780E or M690E chipset, embedded system designers can take advantage of a complete x86-based solution that can help streamline development, minimize time to market and offers leading-edge graphics capability, which is increasingly important in many embedded markets.
