Principal component of a digital computer, composed of a control unit, an instruction-decoding unit, and an arithmetic-logic unit. module and base board can be easily incorporated into a wide range of end-user designs without modifications.
The small form factor, low power and simplified design packages of the development boards help developers create increasingly smaller devices demanded by the embedded and industrial markets. Application developers can reduce time-to-market for smaller, higher performing devices because the boards require minimal device enclosure space, provide broad support for industry standards and already include extensive design and engineering.
"With the AMD Geode processor-based development boards, design engineers can quickly create a full range of products for a variety of uses," said Erik Salo, director of marketing, Personal Connectivity Solutions Group, AMD. "AMD is offering its customers incredible design flexibility and support with these development tools, and we look forward to seeing additional AMD Geode processor-based devices across the embedded, industrial and consumer markets later this year."
Both development boards provide a suite of advanced capabilities. The AMD Geode DBSC1200 development board includes additional features for video input/output and processing.
