Is AMD Coming Back? – AMD G-Series SoC Platforms

AMD Logo


Currently at Habey, we are looking into diversifying our options for our customers. We are starting to include AMD and ARM processors into our product lines. One of the newer boards coming out soon is the EMB-3700.

The EMB-3700 G-Series is a 3.5 Inch Embedded Board powered by an AMD G-Series SoC based off AMDs newest architechture named, “Jaguar.”

Being a provider for your embedded solutions, we knew we had to get this processor onto some of our boards and get them to you as soon as possible.

Embedded Board


Perfect for Digital Signage, POS & Kiosks, HTPCs, and plenty more, the AMD G-Series processors is integrated with a Radeon HD 8000 Series GPU. The graphics controller supports DirectX® 11.1, OpenGL 4.2x and OpenCL™ 1.22 enabling parallel processing and spectacular performance processing.

The chip till take up 33% less space on the board offering a bit more space onboard. The chip offers up to 113% improved CPU performance compared to AMD’s previous embedded chips. Compared to the Intel Atom processors the AMD is said to have a 125% advantage running multiple industry-standard, graphics-intensive benchmarks.

Also, the new G-Series chips will have Error-Correction Code (ECC) memory support with a 9W-25W power options, making this board a high performance, low power, long life cycle board. The chips have an industrial temperature range of -40°C to 85°C, and an I/O controller.

After the embedded chips are released, AMD says “comprehensive ecosystem of industry-leading embedded solution providers supporting and/or announcing market-ready products” powered by the platform.
