[Translate to Italiano:] congatec offers AMD dual core power on Qseven

[Translate to Italiano:] New conga-QAF Qseven module steps to the top with its extremely high graphics and dual core performance for mobile applications

[Translate to Italiano:] Deggendorf, Germany, September 29, 2011   * * *   congatec AG, a leading manufacturer of embedded computer modules, announces the expansion of its Qseven product line.


The conga-QAF Qseven module, which is based on the AMD Embedded G-Series, is the first module to combine high graphics performance, dual core processing power and low power consumption in such a small form factor. It is therefore a perfect solution for cost-sensitive low-power control and visualization applications.


The conga-QAF is available in two processor variants: AMD G-Series G-T40E 1.0 GHz Dual Core (6.4 W); and AMD G-Series G-T40R 1.0 GHz Single Core (5.5 W) with up to 4 GB of low power onboard DDR3 memory.


The integrated graphics core with the Universal Video Decoder 3.0 for seamless processing of Blu-ray content via HDCP (1080p), MPEG-2, HD and DivX (MPEG-4) video supports DirectX® 11 and OpenGL 4.0 for fast 2D and 3D image display and OpenGL 1.1. LVDS. DisplayPort and HDMI graphics interfaces are provided.
The AMD G-Series graphics unit can also be used for compute-intensive parallelizable operations that are normally executed by the processor. OpenCL support is offered to ensure that non-graphics related standard operations are also easy and straightforward to perform.


The new conga-QAF Qseven module, which measures just 70 x 70 mm and uses the AMD Hudson E1 Fusion controller hub in combination with the G-Series processor, provides a powerful and compact two-chip solution with a complete feature set. Differential interfaces such as PCI Express and SATA are available. Support is further available for 8x USB 2.0, 2x SATA 3.0, 1x SDIO, 4x PCIe 2.0, LPC bus, I²C bus, Gigabit Ethernet and high definition audio.


Extreme performance efficiencies make this a suitable concept for user-friendly control of mobile applications in automation, medical technology, digital signage, POI/POS, transportation, and many other fields.
