SAPPHIRE Technology builds on the reputation and strength of its embedded systems business division by announcing a new series of embedded motherboards with a compact footprint that deliver improved levels of performance, features and stability to customers. Powered by the latest AMD Ryzen Embedded Processor which feature the AMD Radeon "Vega" graphics combined with the high-performance "Zen" CPU, the BP-FP5 and NP-FP5 embedded platforms provide a stable balance of low power consumption and optimized performance for the embedded markets.

According to Paul Smith, Director of SAPPHIRE's Embedded Business Division, "the versatile and effective design of these boards with low power compute and high-resolution multimedia display capability make them perfect for a wide variety of industry applications in the Embedded space such as industrial PC, interactive digital signage, thin clients and POS terminals".

SAPPHIRE Excellence
SAPPHIRE's BP-FP5 and NP-FP5 embedded boards have a compact footprint of 4 inches x 4 inches and feature up to 32 GB dual-channel DDR4 (2400 MHz) SODIMM memory as well as expansion interfaces including M.2 sockets for WiFi and SSD modules. The BP-FP5 supports up to three independent 4K displays with on board 2x DisplayPort (DP) and 1x HDMI 2.0 and I/O connectivity of 5x USB ports. The NP-FP5 supports up to two independent 4K displays with on board 2x mini-DisplayPort (DP) and I/O connectivity of 5x USB ports. Moreover, the BP-FP5 and NP-FP5 boards operate with maximum APU thermal design power (TDP) of 25 W whilst delivering outstanding compute and graphics performance.

Powered by AMD Ryzen Embedded Processor
The BP-FP5 and NP-FP5 support the latest AMD Ryzen Embedded V1000 and R1000 Processors that provide ultra-high performance to embedded markets by combining the powerful performance of the pioneering "Zen" CPU and "Vega" GPU architectures in a seamlessly-integrated SoC solution that sets a new standard for next-generation embedded designs.

"With the AMD Ryzen Embedded processors, our goal is to provide customers with the seamless compute power needed for designers to achieve new levels of versatility and efficiency for embedded computing," said Stephen Turnbull, director of product management and business development, Embedded Solutions, AMD. "We are excited to see SAPPHIRE use the AMD Ryzen Embedded processors to deliver innovative products, such as the BP-FP5 and NP-FP5 embedded boards, delivering a stable balance of low power consumption and optimized performance for the embedded markets."

Turbo Charged Mini PC
Simply NUC the leading specialist of NUC-based mini-computer systems is announcing an extension of their line of long-life mini-computer product line based on SAPPHIRE embedded motherboards at Embedded World 2020. Simply NUC will launch three new families.
