AMD has launched AMD Embedded+, a new computing architecture that combines AMD Ryzen Embedded processors with Versal adaptive systems on chips, or SoCs. The single integrated board is scalable and power-efficient and can accelerate time to market for original design manufacturer, or ODM, partners, the company notes.
“In automated systems, sensor data has diminishing value with time and must operate on the freshest information possible to enable the lowest-latency, deterministic response,” says Chetan Khona, senior director of industrial, vision, healthcare, and sciences markets at AMD, in a release.
“In industrial and medical applications, many decisions need to happen in milliseconds,” Khona adds. “Embedded+ maximizes the value of partner and customer data with energy efficiency and performant computing that enables them to focus in turn on addressing their customer and market needs.”
In the two years since it acquired Xilinx, AMD said it has seen increasing demand for AI in industrial/manufacturing, medical/surgical, smart-city infrastructure, and automotive markets. Not only can Embedded+ support video codecs and AI inferencing, but the combination of Ryzen and Versal can enable real-time control of robot arms, Khona says.
“Diverse sensor data is relied upon more than ever before, across applications,” Khona said in a recent press statement. “The question is how to get sensor data from autonomous systems into a PC if it isn’t on a USB or some consumer interface.”
