High-performance, low-power JX products deliver optimal balance of 4K multimedia processing at competitive price point


AMD Embedded G-Series systems-on-a-chip (SoCs) have a small footprint design to support compact form factors and drive power efficiency without compromising on high-speed graphics and computing performance. AMD recently refreshed its AMD Embedded G-Series J Family of processors, formerly codenamed “Prairie Falcon,” now offering pin compatibility with the higher performance AMD Embedded R-Series SoC, formerly codenamed “Merlin Falcon,” to enable design continuity and continued scalability from high-end to low-end offerings.

Additionally, the upgraded AMD Embedded G-Series J Family of processors are attractive for devices such as thin clients with exacting energy efficiency requirements, supporting thermal design profiles (TDPs) measuring less than 10W.


Consistent with a majority of AMD Embedded products, the AMD Embedded G-Series J Family has planned availability for up to 10 years, providing a long-lifecycle support roadmap for our customers.
