AMD Ryzen Embedded based SBC-VR1000 SBC to Power Edge Computing & Graphics Applications

We just wrote about a 3.5″ Ryzen Embedded SBC a few days ago, namely SECO SBC-C90 single board computer, after mentioning there were few such AMD options in the 3.5-inch form factor with the only other board we covered so far being IBase IB918.

But there’s now at least a third option with Kontron introducing SBC-VR1000 3.5-inch board powered by AMD Ryzen Embedded V1000-series or R1000-series processor, and designed for “intensive edge computing and graphics applications” including digital signage, digital casino gaming, kiosk, retail, banking, education, medical imaging, as well as industrial control and automation.

The company only mentions support for Windows 10 operating system, but I assume Linux should also work on the board depending on drivers’ support.

Kontron SBC-VR1000 will launch in Q2 2020 according to the press release. Further information may eventually be found on the product page.
