COMPACT MODULE TAPS AMD’S RYZEN EMBEDDED V1000
Arbor Technology recently announced the specifications for a new board, a COM Express Compact Type 6 module called the EmETXe-a10M0. The board which is based on AMD’s Ryzen Embedded V1000 SoC with up to 32GB of memory plus a GBE Controller and triple display support joins several other V1000-based modules that use the 95 x 95mm Compacts Type 6 form factor such as Seco’s COMe-B75-CT6, Ibase’s ET976, and the Kontron’s COMe-cVR6 which is also now available with the scaled-down Ryzen Embedded R1000.
The EmETXe-a10M0 comes Ubuntu ready and can run either of Ubuntu Linux or Windows 10 on your choice of three quad-core V1000 models which have been soldered down to the board to improve general reliability.
The EmETXe-a10M0 is a feature-rich board with a V1807B clocked at 3.35GHz/3.8GHz which has a Vega GPU with 11 compute units, making it 3 compute units better than the ones before him like the V1605B (clocked at 2.0GHz/3.6GHz) and the V1756B (clocked at 3.25GHz/3.6GHz)which both have Vega GPUs with 8 GPU Computeunits.
The module is equipped with up to 32GB DDR4 via dual sockets. It supports triple independent displays by way of 3x DDI interfaces with a choice of 24-bit LVDS or optional DisplayPort. The module also comes with an HD audio codec on board along with a GbE controller (Intel i210IT) and support for 2x SATA III, 8x PCIe x1, and PCIe x8. Additional I/O includes 4x USB 3.1, 8x USB 2.0, 2x UART, 8-bit DIO, LPC, and SPI with a watchdog and optional TPM 2.0.
The board can be powered via it’s 5-20V power input with a power consumption of 2.39A when powered from a 12V power supply unit using the lower end V1605B. Physicall the module supports temperatures between -20 to 70ºC with a 10 ~ 95% @ 70ºC (non-condensing) humidity tolerance.
