This platform not only facilitates quicker product launches by reducing qualification and build times but also supports the creation of low-power, compact designs with prolonged lifecycles, ideal for use in medical, industrial, and automotive sectors.

AMD has announced the launch of AMD Embedded+, a new integrated computing solution that combines AMD Ryzen Embedded processors with Versal adaptive SoCs on a single board. This platform aims to provide scalable and energy-efficient solutions to accelerate time-to-market for original design manufacturer (ODM) partners. The Embedded+ platform, validated by AMD, helps ODM customers reduce qualification and build times, enabling faster product launches without additional hardware and R&D investments. It supports the development of designs with low power consumption, small form factors, and extended lifecycles, making it suitable for medical, industrial, and automotive applications.

Embedded+ architecture uniquely combines AMD x86 compute with integrated graphics and programmable hardware for AI inferencing and sensor fusion applications. It offers low latency processing and high performance-per-watt inferencing, integrating adaptive computing in real-time with flexible I/O, AI Engines for inferencing, and AMD Radeon graphics. The key features include:

  • First-of-its-kind Embedded+ architecture merges AMD x86 compute, integrated graphics, and programmable hardware.
  • Designed for critical AI inferencing and sensor fusion applications.
  • Adaptive computing provides deterministic, low-latency processing.
  • AI Engines enhance high performance-per-watt inferencing.
  • Ryzen Embedded processors feature high-performance “Zen” cores and Radeon graphics.
  • Offers world-class rendering and display options for an enhanced 4K multimedia experience.
  • Includes a built-in video codec for 4K H.264/H.265 encode and decode.

Sapphire Technology has released the first ODM solution based on Embedded+ architecture, the Sapphire Edge+ VPR-4616-MB. This low-power Mini-ITX form factor motherboard utilizes the Ryzen Embedded R2314 processor and Versal AI Edge VE2302 Adaptive SoC, offering a full suite of capabilities with as low as 30W of power. The VPR-4616-MB is also a complete system, including memory, storage, power supply, and chassis.

Chetan Khona, AMD’s senior director of Industrial, Vision, Healthcare, and Sciences Markets, highlighted the importance of low latency and deterministic response in automated systems. He emphasized that Embedded+ maximizes the value of partner and customer data through energy-efficient and performant computing, allowing them to focus on addressing their market needs.
