About Symmetry Electronics Team

Established in 1998, Symmetry Electronics is a focused global distributor of wireless connectivity solutions, sensors, and audio-video technologies. Offering comprehensive design support and available-to-ship inventory, Symmetry is committed to helping engineers accelerate time to market, reduce costs, and offer modern solutions for their IoT designs. Acquired by the Berkshire Hathaway company TTI, Inc. in 2017, Symmetry Electronics is headquartered in Los Angeles with international offices in Mexico, Canada, and China.

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. They’re increasingly constrained by the cost, coding and maintenance inefficiencies imposed by legacy ASIC, DSP and FPGA processors, and burdened by antiquated system architectures and narrow processor support ecosystems that limit hardware and software scalability. 

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.

 

Shop AMD Solutions:


Where previously printing and imaging processing functions were partitioned across heterogeneous chipsets comprised of control CPUs, ASICs and/or DSPs and FPGAs, AMD’s Embedded SOCs and discrete graphics solutions can unify these functions under a single processor leveraging advanced GPU compute capabilities. In this architecture, the onboard GPU accelerates the computation of image processing algorithms via its massively parallel processing power, while consolidating scan and print pipeline processing and general control processing functions onto a common processing platform.

This approach helps reduce BOM costs and simplifies hardware complexity while boosting processing performance, enabling faster, higher quality scanning and printing, and advanced, revenue-generating value add-services including document management, data analysis and more. What’s more, system designers can exploit pin and software stack compatibility across select processors throughout AMD’s portfolio to maintain design continuity and streamline development cycles across their printing and imaging product portfolios.
