SAN BRUNO, Calif., Nov. 26, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MSC Embedded Inc., manufacturer of highly integrated standard board level products and customer-specific boards and systems, announces its new COM Express™ Type 6 MSC C6C-GX module family based on the AMD Embedded G-Series SOC (system-on-chip) platform. The computer-on-modules offer a powerful graphics and multimedia performance with low power dissipation.

The MSC C6C-GX module family will be available with four different quad-core and dual-core processors: AMD GX-420CA (2.0GHz, 25W TDP) and AMD GX-415GA (1.5GHz, 15W TDP) with four CPU cores each and dual-core variants with AMD GX-217GA (1.65GHz, 15W TDP) and AMD GX-210HA (1.0GHz, 9W TDP). The processors support AMD64 64-bit ISA technology. The chipset is integrated into the SOC.

Furthermore the SOC contains the on-chip Radeon HD 8000 Series GPU including a hardware video decoder (H.264, MPEG4, VC-1, WMV) and the VCE 2.0 video compression engine (H.264, SVC). The innovative graphics controller supports DirectX® 11.1, OpenGL 4.2 and OpenCL™ 1.2.

The powerful COM Express™ MSC C6C-GX modules support two independent displays. These can be connected via Digital Display Interface (DP 1.2, DVI, HDMI 1.4a) with resolutions of up to 4096 x 2160, an Embedded DisplayPort 1.3 with 2560 x 1600, LVDS or VGA. Flexible connectivity is assured by three PCI Express™ x1 channels, PCI Express graphics (PEG) x8, two USB 3.0 and six USB 2.0 ports, LPC, Gbit Ethernet, HD audio, a microSD card socket and two SATA interfaces at up to 3 Gb/s are available. The main memory can be expanded to 16 GB dual-channel DDR3-1600 SDRAM via two SO DIMM sockets.

In addition to the embedded modules, MSC offers Board Support Packages (BSPs) for the Microsoft Windows® Embedded Standard 7 and Linux operating systems. Starter kits and carrier boards, as well as cooling solutions and memory modules are available. The computer-on-modules integrate Infineon's Trusted Platform Module TPM 1.2.

The cost-effective MSC C6C-GX module family is especially suited for various applications with demanding graphics, high-definition videos and for the control of large displays for medical, infotainment, digital signage, POS/POI and gaming systems.
