AMD G-Series SoC and AMD R-Series APU Embedded Solutions for Medical and Print Imaging Systems
To help OEMs who have been tied into just one vendor’s solution from generation to generation, OpenCL™ – the royalty-free open standard for parallel processing software development – can help to reduce system costs through compatibility with CPUs, GPUs, and some DSPs and FPGAs from a variety of vendors. And OpenCL compatibility across the AMD G-Series SoC, AMD R-Series APU, and AMD Embedded Radeon™ discrete graphics platforms enables software-defined solutions that can leverage a single code base to scale across a portfolio of products, which can help reduce software development costs.
For products that target cost sensitive emerging markets or where healthcare reform is applying cost pressure on medical imaging applications, the AMD G-Series SoC and AMD R-Series APU offer up to 10 years of product availability. This can reduce frequent system redesign and certification, helping to make products more competitive.
Medical imaging applications – including mobile and cart-based ultrasound systems, endoscopy systems and high-end MRI and CT scanners – all have unique data throughput, image transformation, and post-processing requirements.
AMD embedded solutions offer the capabilities necessary to meet these requirements through scalable offerings that can help to reduce development and system costs while delivering a versatile and high-performance software-defined solution to support next-generation features.
Designers of next-generation printing and imaging solutions seek the freedom and flexibility to enable advanced value-add services while minimizing hardware, software and development expenses. AMD addresses these challenges head-on with a comprehensive portfolio of processing solutions for printing and imaging systems spanning from midrange multifunction printers to enterprise-class large format and production printers. Providing a wide breadth of performance, power and price options – with support for both x86 and ARM® processing architectures and software ecosystems – AMD enables OEMs to provide highly differentiated printing and imaging solutions and services that can lower their customers’ total cost of ownership.
