Backplane Systems Technology introduces Avalue's ECM-A50M 3.5-inch single board computers based on the new AMD eOntarion T40E CPU and A50M.
The AMD Embedded G-Series platform is a low power CPU and advanced GPU integrated into a single embedded Accelerated Processing Unit (APU). It builds a new foundation for high performance multimedia content delivery in a small form factor and a power efficient platform for a broad variety of embedded designs.
The ECM-A50M SBCs are designed to meet the embedded market demand for low power consumption, and provide customers a better choice for higher level graphics and system performance. The SBCs are ideal for customers who need an embedded board for high-performance multimedia applications in a small form factor, which is suitable for a variety of environments such as POS/kiosks, digital signage, medical and transportation systems.
Avalue’s ECM-A50M SBCs have adopted the new 2nd generation of AMD eOntario T40E 1.0GHz CPU, which consumes only 9 watts of power. The ECM-A50M with AMD A50M Controller Hub Hudson-M1 supports dual channel 18/24-bit LVDS (transfer through DDI) as well as CRT+LVDS, HDMI+LVDS and CRT+HDMI for multi-display configurations.
The I/O interfaces in Avalue's ECM-A50M SBCs include 2x SATA, 2x COM, 7x USB 2.0, 1x LPC, 16-bit GPIO (8-in and 8-out) and 4/5/8-wire built-in touch controller.
The new SBCs support one 204-pin DDR3 SODIMM socket supporting up to 4GB DDR3 1066 SDRAM, 2x Realtek Gigabit interfaces and 1x mini-PCIe (mSATA supported) expansion slot to provide faster networking communication. The AC97 Codec 7.1 channel audio offers Line-in, Line-out and Mic-in functions.
