AMD Ryzen Embedded R1606G Mini PC

The fanless industrial mini PC comes with a 12V power adapter, wall & VESA mounting brackets, and supports Windows 10 and Linux 4.18 or greater.  ASRock claims they are the first company to design a NUC 4″x4″ form factor computer with an AMD processor.

Pricing has not been announced, and it’s unclear whether it’s available now. More details may be found on the product page. If you’d rather get the board only, and integrated into your own design, you can do so with ASRock NUC-R1000 board instead.

As a side note, ASRock released a similar mini PC last week, but based on Intel Whiskey Lake-U 15 Watts processors, and called iBOX-8265U.

Pricing has now been announced ?

Very interesting, seems similar to the MintBox (Compulab) released last July. This AMD model is more attractive than the Intel model in that it has 2xEthernet and runs on 12V.

But no audio?

Right next to the front USB 3.0 port.

Even if it didn’t have one, aside from a $3 usb sound card or $4 bluetooth-headphones adapter, you could demux the hdmi signal for the audio using “hdmi audio extractors” dongles such as this: https://www.ebay.com/itm/HDMI-1-4-To-HDMI-Audio-Extractor-1080p-Digital-To-3-5mm-Jack-Converter-Adapter/293042694103?hash=item443ab4a7d7:g:e~oAAOSwk2pcrWm9

We use the (really cute!) Compulab Fitlet2 and it certainly has two Ethernet ports and also runs from 12 VDC, with a nice twist lock connector. I’m interested in this for the DE-9 RS-232 connector, especially if the pricing is competitive.

A safe hope, considering Compulab’s pricing. It might be cheaper, though, to simply buy Compulab’s custom cable for fitlet2’s COM-Port.

Yeah, I was comparing with, “As a side note, ASRock released a similar mini PC last week, but based on Intel Whiskey Lake-U 15 Watts processors, and called iBOX-8265U”, which has one ethernet, actually specs differ quite substantially, although the spec page and press release page for this AMD model aren’t consistent either.

This would be sub-$200, bare-bones? Last I looked the Fitlet2 was ~$170?

IMHO the image of the ASRock iBOX-R1000 is a joke … the side with exposed COM port (DB9) + audio + USB 3.1 + USB 2.0 is fake.
If you check the ASRock NUC-R1000 board versus the ASRock iBOX-R1000, audio and USB 3.1 ports have different position, considering the upper right corner (hole).

yes, the photo is exactly the same as the one from their intel box.

> audio and USB 3.1 ports have different position

Hmm… checking the position of the PCB (mounted flipped by 180° to the enclosure top for maximum heat dissipation) and comparing PCB and enclosure dimensions it looks like internal ports on the back are routed with cable extenders to the external ports (same with USB2 and serial).

Right, NUC-R1000 product page confirms a daughter PCB for audio and the back USB3.1 port.

I heard that there were two native 10GE ports on R1000.
Any products with 1G/2.5G/10G compatible optical interface will be really interesting.

i know only 1 ryzen embedded product that exposes their 10 GbE : the IPC-FP5V 10GbE from Sapphire
https://www.sapphiretech.com/en/commercial/amd-ipc-fp5v
it’s about the V1000 series, but the V1605B CPU is 15W TDP too

not sure that’s what you’re talking about though

SAPPHIRE IPC-FP5R-10GE (board with AMD Ryzen™ Embedded R1000 series APU and Dual 10 Gigabit Ethernet Rj-45 ports)

Thanks! This could be a winner for me! Their Ryzen V1000 series was nice but priced a bit high for my needs. This could be the sweet spot.
