Much more power on a smaller footprint

19-11-2020 | Congatec | Subs & Systems

Congatec has broadened the application areas of its AMD Ryzen Embedded processor-based COM Express Type 6 platforms towards smaller but more powerful system designs by launching the new AMD Ryzen Embedded V2000 processor recently released on the COM Express Compact footprint. The new conga-TCV2 powered by the new Ryzen Embedded V2000 processor impresses with up to 2x generational uplift in performance per watt, a 2x more CPU cores in comparison to previous generations, at only 76% of the previous size on a 100% pin-compatible form factor.

The AMD Ryzen Embedded V2000 SoC integrates AMD Radeon graphics, with up to seven GPU compute units. The performance per watt improvements of the new ’Zen 2’ cores used by the CPU are based on the 7nm manufacturing process technology. The architecture optimisation also adds a calculated 15% more instructions per clock to this improvement.

With up to eight cores and 16 threads on a single BGA footprint, the new CoM are great prospects for digitisation and parallel-processed edge analytics – incorporating workload balancing and consolidation facilitated by virtual machines based on the company's RTS real-time hypervisor implementations.

Other applications incorporate smart robotics, e-mobility and autonomous vehicles that use deep learning to optimise their situational awareness.

“With up to 16 threads, high performance embedded system designs at the edge can now execute twice as many tasks at given TDP ranges, which is great news for edge computing as more and more parallel tasks occur at the edge. It is also impressive to see integrated graphics performance continues to offer outstanding 3D graphics quality on up to four independent 4k60 displays. All this comes in scalable TDP classes ranging from 54 Watt down to extremely low-power configurations consuming as little as 10 Watt,” explains Martin Danzer, director of Product Management at congatec.

“We are pleased to work with congatec in launching the Ryzen Embedded V2000 series based Computer-on-Module (COM) Express modules,” said Amey Deosthali, director of Product Marketing, Embedded Business Group, AMD. “COM Express Type 6 form factors from congatec offer cutting-edge graphics and outstanding CPU performance based on our new AMD Ryzen Embedded V2000 processors.”
