Advanced Micro Devices Inc. (AMD) introduced the M690 chipset for embedded designs, which is said to provide a stable and reliable commercial embedded computing platform that includes advanced graphics and performance features along with connectivity options.

AMD said the M690 chipset gives embedded system designers a choice when using AMD64 technology. The chipset boasts graphics and enhanced video performance and numerous display and connectivity options, according to the company.

"By adding the AMD M690 chipset to our embedded offerings, AMD helps designers build their projects with a packaged solution to best fit their needs, while giving end customers the performance and computing power needed for their unique environments," said Greg White, vice president of AMD's embedded computing solutions division.

AMD also announced the AMD Socket S1 and AMD M690 chipset development board. The Socket S1 and AMD M690 chipset development board capitalizes on the scalable power and performance options of the AMD Turion 64, Turion 64 X2 dual-core and mobile AMD Sempron processors, and serves as a comprehensive evaluation and development platform for designers looking to create small form factor or graphics-centric embedded solutions, AMD said. The board harnesses the graphics and video performance of the AMD 690 chipset and integrates PCI and PCI Express expansion slots, USB 2.0, CRT/DVI/LVDS display options, high-definition audio, and gigabit Ethernet onto a standard ATX form factor board.
