AOPEN is increasing its collaboration with AMD, with both companies currently participating in Embedded World 2018 in Germany.  The two tech firms are also set to release a new digital engine powered by AMD technology.

As the leading expo for embedded devices, Embedded World is the ideal showcase for AOPEN’s sleek and powerful technology.

AMD CTO Mark Papermaster, whose keynote topic is: “Evolving Embedded Systems in a Self-directed World”, says the technologies to enable truly intelligent systems are right in front of us.

“The embedded market has been leveraging parallel compute architectures, such as GPUs, for years to process graphics and multimedia content. As computer vision and machine learning grows momentum these same technologies can be utilised to drive the next generation of embedded systems incorporating artificial intelligence,” Papermaster says.

One of these next generation devices will be the AOPEN Digital Engine® DE6340, a powerful media player with UHD 4K2K, set to be released in Q3 2018.

Designed for advanced commercial displays such as menu boards and video walls, the DE6340 is powered by AMD’s latest V1000 series APU. Stan the Head of Channel & Customer Div. of AOPEN, says the DE6340 represents a major advance in power and ease of use.
