LX800 EOL Replacement

With EOL AMD Geode LX800, EMAC can always help you choose the best Off-the-Shelf replacement for any legacy system. While most AMD Geode LX800 EOL Replacements do not have 100% of the same IO or header configurations. We can offer a range of boards to pick from in almost every size.  Most projects do not warrant a fully custom solution as the NRE typically is more than most projects are willing to absorb.

AMD’s long-running embedded processor the AMD Geode LX800 is closing in on the end of its life, working to find replacements for the EOL AMD Geode LX800 process boards. below we look at what replacements are available and where the AMD Geode LX800 came from. The AMD Geode LX Processor has had over 20 years in an industry where 3 years old is ancient technology. This falls not quite 18 months since AMD stopped production on the AMD G-series LX Processor family which was designed to replace the aging LX800 when it was launched, but it never got traction. As the AMD Embedded LX processors fade toward twilight, many are or will be scrambling to find suitable replacements for their embedded systems.

Many Embedded Systems have used the AMD Geode LX Family processors, and their predecessors(or ancestors), the PCM-9375, PCM-9376, PCM-5895, PCM-4896, PCM-4896L, PCM-4897, MIO-2270, MIO-5270, GENE-A55E, GENE-5315, PCM-5315, GENE-HD05, EPIC-HD07, EPIC-5536, PFM-540I, PFM-541I, PFM-HDS, HSB-800I, PCM-3353, PCM-3355, PCM-3350, PCM-3356, SOM-4450, SOM-4455, SOM-4466, PCM-5820, PCM-5822, PCM-5823, PCM-5825, SOM-5893, PPC-L61T, ARK-DS306, PCA-6763, RS-400, ETX-LX “18027-0000”, MOPSlcdLX “01036-0000-53”, CRR-LX800-E-500 “803-0010-20”, UNO-1150, NANO-LX-800, WAFER-LX, PM-LX, all used the a Geode processor of some form.
