Premio, Inc., a rugged edge and embedded computing tech provider, recently announced a new line of single board computers (SBCs) designed for industrial-grade applications.
According to the company, the new SBC from Premio delivers high performance in an integrated single-board package and incorporates multi-core capabilities and visual effects from AMD’s chip design.
The newest release from Premio features the 3.5-inch industrial-grade SBC, CT-DR101 Series, delivering high-performance speeds through AMD Ryzen Embedded processors (R1606G and V1605B).
“For over 30 years, our engineering skill set and technology partnerships with leaders in semiconductor technology — like AMD — have allowed us to provide reliable computing solutions for mission-critical, industrial-grade deployments,” said Dustin Seetoo, Premio’s product marketing director. “With new data-driven demands from IoT and edge computing applications calling for more machine intelligence, our enterprise partners rely on Premio to enable the latest x86 designs as building blocks for massive scale.”
System integrators and original equipment manufacturers throughout North America may now use AMD 3.5-inch and 1.8-inch SBCs as commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) building blocks in their computing solutions for large scale.
The Premio 3.5-inch CT-DR101 Series implements the AMD Ryzen Embedded R1606G and V1605B SoCs to provide excellent performance efficiency and low processing power requirements. The two DDR4 SO-DIMM slots can support up to 32GB of ECC/non-ECC memory. This promotes smooth multitasking and efficient data processing for various devices and IoT sensors located at the rugged edge.
Premio’s 1.8-inch CT-NR101 Series embedded SBC provides high-performance power with its AMD Ryzen™ Embedded R1606G SoC processor. This card-sized board comes in an 84 mm x 55 mm form factor. This smaller size is ideal for embedded applications with limited space.
The CT-NR101 supports dual independent expandable mPCIe slots, 4K displays, and a USB Type-C port — making it scalable and compatible, the company says.
The 3.5-inch SBC has several 4K resolution display outputs, I/Os, mPCIe, SATA, and M.2 expansion slots to ensure expandability and compatibility for key technology drivers. The CT-DR101 SBC form factor fits into tight spaces but features I/O ports and expansion slots. Because of this, it supports many embedded applications.
The company created these SBCs for space-restricted applications that demand high computing power.
Casino gaming machines, smart retail and kiosks, digital signage, medical imaging, and industrial automation and controls are some verticals that may benefit from powerful SBCs.
“As computing hardware becomes smaller, more powerful, and even more energy-conscious in new IoT and edge level deployments, specific embedded applications are leveraging SBCs to power their unique applications for trusted reliability,” Seetoo also said.
