AMD Radeon E9171 Embedded GPU

E9171 Platform for Safety Critical Applications

The E9171 Platform for Safety Certifiable Applications available from CoreAVI is comprised of temperature screened GPUs, safety certifiable COTS-D hardware IP, development hardware, safety certifiable Vulkan® drivers, OpenGL® SC libraries and safety certifiable GPU tools which have been pre-integrated and validated together to significantly de-risk the integration challenges typically faced when integrating hardware and software components from multiple suppliers. The platform is an off the shelf foundation upon which safety certifiable applications can be built with confidence.

Product Overview

AMD Radeon E9171 Embedded GPU

AMD Embedded Radeon E9171 power-efficient embedded discrete GPUs provide an optimal performance-per-watt balance for embedded systems with strict thermal constraints, enabling passive cooling for many designs. Targeted for use in low-power, small form factor, and ruggedized systems, the power-efficient E9171 embedded GPU is an excellent fit for applications including mobile and staticscreen digital signage, factory human-machine interfaces, thin client computing, medical displays, and heads-up military and aerospace displays.

Designed for use in a wide variety of embedded and safety critical platforms, CoreAVI's graphics and video software drivers enable system manufacturers to harness the full capabilities of the AMD E9171 GPU. Available with 20 year component supply program, CoreAVI's temperature-screened AMD E9171 GPU includes support with their full suite of OpenGL SC / ES drivers and video decode for real time operating systems, complete RTCA DO-178C / EUROCAE ED-12C Level A certification packages and 20 year program supply management.
