The AMD DB-FT1 development board is an evaluation board for the AMD Embedded G-Series platform, a low power processor and advanced GPU integrated into a single embedded Accelerated Processing Unit (APU). The platform is capable of delivering high display resolution, up to 2560x1600 pixels, and high performance multi-media, while maintaining a low-power design in a small form factor. Its power efficient and space saving advantages are directly attributable to AMD’s innovative power optimized processor core design. Therefore, the AMD Embedded G-Series is an ideal platform for a multitude of embedded applications such as Digital Signage, Integrated x86 Set-Top-Box (xSTB), Thin Clients, and Casino Gaming applications that demand high quality multi-media and an exceptional visual experience.
The AMD-based x86 Set-Top Box (xSTB) solution provides the technologies to meet the needs of today’s high performance set-top box solutions. AMD is setting the standard in today’s high performance, low power set-top box designs while leveraging an industry standard small form factor to help reduce time and costs in bringing the product to market. Combining AMD’s wide range of powerful 64-bit x86 processors with high performance integrated graphics solutions provides the basis to create an xSTB solution to meet the market’s needs. AMD’s xSTB x86 architecture allows developers to take advantage of the extensive applications and development that already exist for the PC market and leverage them for their system development. The AMD xSTB enables x86 applications on the set-top box including running some of the latest games and gives the designer a number of different operating system choices from both Microsoft® and the Linux® community.
