Sapphire Unveils FS-FP5V: AMD Ryzen Embedded Mini-STX Motherboard
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.
