Computer-on-Module for graphics, multimedia, and industrial control introduced by andersDX

LONDON, 14 March 2013. The embedded computing company andersDX in London is introducing the CM-iGT Computer-on-Module for industrial control systems, digital signage, thin clients, information kiosks, point-of-sale units, and media servers.

The embedded computing board is powered by the AMD G-Series APU with a dual-core 64 bit x86 CPU that runs at speeds to 1.65 GHz, integrated with an AMD Radeon HD 6250 GPU. This is supplemented with 4 gigabytes DDR3 and 32 gigabytes of on-board solid-state disk.

The CM-iGT comes from andersDX's joint venture with CompuLab ltd. This low-cost G-series APU module mounts on an SB-iGT carrier board to become an SBC-iGT mini-ATX single board computer. The CM-iGT's interface capabilities are made available the SB-iGT or custom carrier board.

The module's AMD G-series processor features a scalable single/dual core CPU that runs at speeds to 1.65 GHz coupled with video processing and graphics acceleration units. Video processing is driven by a UVD 3 engine with native H.264, VC-1, MPEG2, and DivX 1080p Blu-Ray playback support.
