AMD recently announced their G-Series SoC family that combines a CPU, a GPU, and a controller hub into a single chip, as ARM has been doing for a while, and more products based on the platform are entering the marketplace. I’ve already written about Win Enterprises MB-60830 and Netboard A10 single board computers, and today I’ll introduce another option with Habey EMB-3700, a 3.5″ embedded board that targets applications such as digital signage, point-of-sale (PoS), industrial automation, machine to machine, in-vehicle telemetry, and medical technology.

The company mentions the board features “AMD Embedded G-Series SOC processor family with 6W-25W TDP options”, which implied it should support more than the 3 processors (9W to 25W TDP) listed in the specifications. They do not mention operating systems or software support, but I’m pretty sure Linux and Windows (Embedded) should be support on this boards.
The company’s website does not indicate price or availability either. You may find a bit more information on Habey USA EMB-3700 page.
