Military signal processing and graphics processing growth areas for AMD processors
AMD officials at Embedded World in Nuremberg, Germany this week say their G Series General Purpose Processors (GPUs) are getting a lot of attention in military signal processing applications where high-performance and intensive number crunching are crucial.
Ruggedization of the G Series is done by AMD’s military partners, says Kelly Gillilan, product marketing manager for AMD Embedded Solutions. Like everyone else military integrators want lower size, weight, and power (SWaP) from their processor components, he adds.
AMD used to just concentrate on a couple key markets, but the reduction in the size, weight, and power of their devices has opened up a lot of new applications for AMD devices, Gillilan says.
Later this year AMD will be releasing a new product code-named Trinity that will be a “big brother”to the G Series and will dual and quad core options, he continues.
