AMD Ryzen Embedded V3000 COM Express Type 7 module supports up to 64GB DDR5 memory

ADLINK Express VR7 is a COM Express Basic size Type 7 computer-on-module powered by the eight-core AMD Ryzen Embedded V3000 processor with two 10GbE interfaces, fourteen PCIe Gen 4 lanes, and optional support for the “extreme temperature range” between -40°C and 85°C.

The COM Express module supports up to 64GB dual-channel DDR5 SO-DIMM  (ECC/non-ECC) memory and targets headless embedded applications such as edge networking equipment, 5G infrastructure at the edge, video storage analytics, intelligent surveillance, industrial automation and control, and rugged edge servers.

ADLINK Express-VR7

ADLINK provides standard support for Yocto Linux and Ubuntu 20.04.3 LTS, as well as extended support for Yocto Project-based Linux, which I suppose means they offer paid services to customize their Yocto BSP. The company will eventually provide I-Pi development kits based on the Express-VR7 module for easy prototyping and evaluation, but no ETA was provided in the press release.

The Express-VR7 COM Express module based on AMD Ryzen Embedded V3000 SoC does not seem to be available at this time with all information preliminary. A few more details may be found on the product page.
