Sapphire has announced one of the world’s first platforms based on AMD’s Ryzen Embedded V1000-series APUs. The motherboard is aimed at various embedded applications that can take advantage of AMD’s latest Zen and Vega architectures and their capabilities. The FS-FP5V also happens to be the industry’s first Mini-STX motherboards to feature AMD’s processor.

The Sapphire FP5V is based on AMD’s Ryzen Embedded V1000 APU featuring two or four cores with SMT clocked at 2 – 3.35 GHz base frequency, AMD’s Radeon Vega 3/8/11 iGPU, a dual-channel memory controller, and so on. Depending on requirements for performance and price, the Ryzen Embedded SoCs can feature a 12 – 25 or a 35 – 54 W TDP. AMD introduced its Ryzen Embedded chips earlier this year and will continue to sell them throughout 2028, giving adopters plenty of time to build and sell their products.

The motherboard is outfitted with two DDR4 SO-DIMMs supporting up to 32 GB of DDR4-2400 – DDR4-3200 memory, a SATA connector, an M.2-2280 slot (PCIe 3.0 x4 or SATA) for SSD, an M.2-2242 slot for a Wi-Fi module, two GbE ports (enabled by Realtek’s RTL8111G controllers), a quad-channel audio controller (ALC262), three USB 2.0 headers, one USB 3.1 Type-C connector, one RS232/422/485 module, etc. See precise specs in the table below.

The key features of Sapphire’s FP5V are of course up to four high-performance Ryzen CPU cores, AMD’s Radeon Vega iGPU with up to 704 stream processors as well as rich connectivity capabilities (e.g., four display outputs). The list of embedded applications that may require such embedded SoCs. include various gaming machines, digital signage, thin clients, medical imaging, and so on.

Sapphire’s FP5V is available for order from the company’s web site. Pricing depends on exact configurations as well as volumes.

    @DanNeely: it is reasonably common for these types of industrial PCs to always expect 12V supply - most of them are going to be "always on".
    They don't care about complying with the ATX standard - it's just a convenient keyed connector for which cheap off-the-shelf components already exist.
    If you want to switch power, you usually use an upstream device to do so. That way you can use the second (battery backed) device as an external watchdog, allowing a full power-cycle when your system inevitably goes belly up.

    Sweet! These chips seem to support ECC - I hope the board does, too.
  • grahad - Tuesday, July 10, 2018 - link

    2x DDR4 ECC/Non-ECC SO-DIMMs
    Dual Channel speed up to DDR4-3200 (configuration dependent)

    i'm pretty happy that these are SODIMMs where i could buy 2 2GB sticks... my 2400G is being used for distributed computing and i'm not even fully using the RAM capacity of the current 1x4GB stick

    I don’t get it. I read that zen has 10Gb Ethernet on the die, yet absolutely everything I’ve seen uses Realtek or Intel to provide Ethernet. Why is that?
  • HideOut - Tuesday, July 10, 2018 - link

    I just wish they'd release a version of these boards that actually has a audio good enough to use in a little miniature home theater setup. That audio quality with the same is not going to be very good

    Meh, I want a Mini-STX board for Ryzen chips of my choice - not some embedded stuff for the IoT crowd.

    IoT will become hell on earth, once its all up and going - cause it'll be misused to the hilt - and not just by the Chinese government...
