Single board computers, or SBCs for English in short, are very popular among enthusiasts and DIY enthusiasts. Although they have been available on the market for a long time, the British Raspberry Pi with its low price and great support contributed to the interest of this market by other manufacturers. Today we will focus on the legendary DFI company, which decided to present its vision of this type of device. It is unique because on the laminate the size of a credit card we find the AMD Ryzen Embedded 1000 chip, DDR4 memory chips, built-in eMMC memory and Mini PCI connector. And all this capable of working under classic Windows or Linux.
DFI GHF51 is a single-board computer with dimensions of 84 x 55 millimeters. The green laminate features a 2-core and 4-thread AMD Ryzen Embedded R1305G chip working with a 1.5 GHz base clock and a maximum clock speed of 2.8 GHz at a TDP from 8 to 10 W. It has an integrated AMD Radeon Vega graphics chip equipped with 3 CU units that supports H.265 video content, VP9 and 4K resolution. The RAM memory is a single-channel DDR4 with a capacity of 2 to 8 GB and working with a clock up to 3200 MHz. The internal memory is an eMMC system with a capacity of 16 to 64 GB, and the whole is completed by the Mini PCIe connector.
Industrial use of various development boards
Introduced in November 2017, the ModBerry M300 series, based on NanoPi NEO revolutionised the economic segment of Industrial IoT devices and proved, that automation and monitoring can be done effectively with low expenditure on industrial installations.
ModBerry M300 O1 based on OrangePi Zero Plus features Allwinner H5 (Quad-core Cortex-A53) SoC, moderate 512MB RAM, storage memory option with microSD slot, USB and Gigabit Ethernet port. The wireless communication is supported with onboard Wi-Fi module.
Offering much higher performance and wider feature range, the ModBerry M300 O2 features same SoC as M300 series, but thanks to OrangePi Zero Plus2 means, the device is equipped with onboard 8GB eMMC, extra microSD expansion slot as alternative and wired/wireless interfaces, e.g. HDMI, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0.
