AMD announces two processors for embedded BGA client platform

AMD release Turion Neo X2 (Model L625) and Athlon Neo X2 (Model L325)

AMD has announced the immediate availability of two new dual-core 18W TDP processors for the highly-scalable ASB1 BGA embedded client platform. The AMD Turion Neo X2 processor Model L625 and the AMD Athlon Neo X2 processor Model L325 claim to deliver PC-caliber performance in a very low power envelope and with an embedded-friendly ball grid array (BGA) package.

AMD says this embedded client solution is ideal for traditional embedded applications such as single board computing and thin client systems, as well as markets for self-service kiosks, point of sale machines and digital signage. The ball grid array (BGA) package reportedly helps alleviate potential reliability issues for systems that are deployed in rugged environments and has a low z-height that is designed to enable thin, compact enclosures.

According to AMD, the addition of these new dual-core processors to the ASB1 BGA platform can help increase the performance of existing single-core designs and when combined with either the AMD 780E or M690E chipset, embedded system designers can take advantage of a complete x86-based solution that can help streamline development, minimize time to market and offers leading-edge graphics capability, which is increasingly important in many embedded markets. All of AMD's embedded products are offered with industry-standard 5-year component longevity.

Systems based on the new dual-core processors are expected at launch from industry-leading embedded system providers IBASE and IEI, among others.

"We are committed to helping simplify the development cycle for our embedded customers with a platform that readily addresses the shifting needs of their markets," said Buddy Broeker, Director, Embedded Computing Solutions Division, AMD. "Systems such as digital signage, point of sale, and thin clients require PC-class performance and a rich graphics experience. Our ASB1 BGA platform is a ready-to-go, one-stop solution for these markets and at the same time offers the flexibility of multiple CPU and chipset choices."

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
