AMD Ryzen Embedded 5000 Series CPUs show up in Micro-ATX motherboard

Advantech has announced the AIMB-522 industrial Micro-ATX motherboard with AMD Ryzen Embedded 5000 Series Zen3 processors for AI image processing in automation and surveillance applications.

I had never heard about “Ryzen Embedded 5000 Series” processors, but that motherboard comes with a choice of new SKUs such as the 12-core Ryzen 5950E, the 10-core Ryzen 5900E, the 8-core Ryzen 5800E, and the 6-core Ryzen 5600E, as well as existing Ryzen 5000 desktop processors.

The AMD Ryzen “X” CPUs do not come with graphics, while the Ryzen “G” APUs integrate a Radeon GPU. It’s unclear whether the Ryzen Embedded 5000 “E” processors are equipped with graphics or not. Considering the lower number of cores for equivalent TDP compared to the “X” models, I’d assume Ryzen Embedded 5000 processors are either designed to operate in a wider temperature range (but the motherboard specs don’t seem to indicate that), or they integrated Radeon graphics. It’s hard to find additional information since the new Embedded processors are not shown on AMD websites at the time of writing.

Advantech says the AIMB-522 is able to support more than 10 high-quality video cameras through its USB 3.2 and Ethernet ports, and the onboard PCI-Express x4 slots can enable additional camera devices or industrial controllers. Advantech AIMB-522 industrial motherboard is available now at an undisclosed price. More details may be found on the product page and press release.
