A combination of a low-power CPU and a discrete-level GPU into a single AMD Embedded G-Series APU eliminates the need for bulky add-on graphics cards for video/graphic-optimised in-vehicle computing systems, achieving an ultra-compact form factor for this system.
The AMD APU architecture reduces the footprint of a traditional three-chip platform to just two chips – the APU and the companion controller hub. This two-chip solution simplifies design complexity through a reduction in board layers and power needs.
The VBOX-3200 has the ability to feed independent dual displays with crisp HD video and graphics for seat-back signage and infotainment installations. At the processor level, this requires high-speed performance, highly efficient video and graphics rendering, and multi-output connectivity support.
The VBOX-3200's system chassis measures a mere 250mm (W) x 150mm (D) x 55mm (H) – enabling the unit to be easily slipped into tight spaces within vehicle cabins. The system supports a wide temperature range of -40ºC to +70ºC for thermally-demanding environments, and also meets the MIL-STD-810F standard for shock and vibration.
