AMD Expands Ryzen Embedded Processor Family for Industrial Automation, Machine Vision and Edge Applications 

NUREMBERG, Germany, Nov. 14, 2023 -- AMD today announced at Smart Production Solutions 2023 the AMD Ryzen Embedded 7000 Series processor family, optimized for the high-performance requirements of industrial markets. By combining “Zen 4” architecture and integrated Radeon graphics, Ryzen Embedded 7000 Series processors deliver performance and functionality not previously offered for the embedded market.

With its expanded features and integration, Ryzen Embedded 7000 Series processors are ideal for a wide range of embedded applications, including industrial automation, machine vision, robotics and edge servers.

The Ryzen Embedded 7000 Series processor is the first embedded processor to use next-generation 5nm technology with a 7-year manufacturing availability commitment. The new embedded processor integrates AMD Radeon RDNA 2 graphics that eliminates the need for a discrete GPU for industrial applications. And because embedded applications require additional operating system software options, Ryzen Embedded 7000 Series processors include support for both Windows Server and Linux Ubuntu, on top of Windows 10 and Windows 11.

Ryzen Embedded 7000 Series processors also include up to 12 high-performance “Zen 4” CPU cores, which combined with its integrated features and wide operating system choices, offers unparalleled ease of integration for system designers.

“Industrial application use cases are continuing to grow in complexity and sophistication and are driving the need for increased processing capabilities,” said Rajneesh Gaur, corporate vice president & general manager, Embedded Processors Group, AMD. “With the integration of key performance features and a scalable design, Ryzen Embedded 7000 Series processors are ideal for a broad range of applications from advanced robotics and instrumentation design to power control, video surveillance and more.”

“For embedded industrial applications, it is critical to provide differentiated and scalable offerings while still meeting power, performance and budget requirements,” said Kevin Krewell, principal analyst at TIRIAS Research. “The new AMD Ryzen Embedded 7000 Series is purpose-built for a wide spectrum of use-cases, making it an ideal choice for industrial applications in a market that will continue to see growth and diversity.”

AMD Ryzen Embedded 7000 Series processors are currently in production and will be showcased by AMD in Hall 4, Stand 121 at SPS in Nuremburg, Germany Nov 14-16.
