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 DB-FT1, a mini-ITX form factor board, supporting either the two-chip Ball Grid Array (BGA) packaged dual-core AMD Embedded G-T56N processor with AMD Radeon™ HD 6310 graphics or the dual-core AMD Embedded G-T40N processor with AMD Radeon™ HD 6290 graphics, combined with the AMD A55E controller hub, enables customers to fully explore the rich feature set of the platform. Supporting 2D and 3D graphics, video acceleration, and dual independent display support through a variety of display interfaces such as eDP, DVI, DisplayPort, LVDS, HDMI™, and VGA.
The DB-FT1 development board not only demonstrates AMD Embedded G-Series platform advantages, but also underscores AMD’s commitment to provide customers with a comprehensive evaluation unit as a development tool for engineers designing products based on AMD’s first generation APU architecture. The evaluation kit comes with software and configuration options.
