At STH, we cover a large number of embedded products with two reviews of embedded platforms just in the past week. At Embedded World 2019 a number of new AMD Ryzen V1000 and AMD EPYC 3000 platforms were on exhibit. In this article, we are going to do something a little different. We are going to chronicle the ecosystem by simply showing our readers what was on display. Specifically, we are going to highlight over 30 platforms found at the show that you readers may not have seen if they were not there. We have what is in this article’s cover picture and more in this article.
