Odoo CMS - a big picture

EFCO, a world-class supplier of industrial computers, and gaming and EMS solutions, today announced its EGL8650 gaming logic computing solution. Equipped with an AMD industrial-grade Ryzen™ Embedded R1000 APU, EFCO’s new EGL8650 boasts support for up to 3 independent 4k displays. The Ryzen™ R1000 series offers 3 times the generational performance, and 4 times better CPU and graphics performance in a single-chip solution. In addition, it is platform-compatible with the Ryzen™ Embedded V1000 series.

“Our latest gaming logic computer is an ideal choice for street slot machines.” Ira Lo, CTO for EFCO commented. “The EGL8650 delivers a new class of performance and has a MTBF rating of more than 30,000 hours of operation at 50°C.  This gaming logic computer will be an asset to many of our customers who are looking to deliver a great visual experience to slot machine players at the best cost/performance. In addition, the EGL8650 does not require an external graphics card, which will further keep costs down in certain environments.”

EGL8650 AMD Ryzen™ Gaming Logic Computer

EGL8650 is based on the AMD Ryzen™ R1000 Series with a Dual Core and up to 3.5GHz. It has integrated AMD Radeon™ Vega 3 Series graphics, provides support for 3x 4K displays, and features full gaming security functions including SecuBoot™, RootSecu,™ Gaming IO NVRAM, and intrusion detection. In addition, EGL8650 offers 4x Serial + 4x USB ports + 2x Ethernet connections for gaming peripherals, and an 8 line (36x2 pin) JAMMA Golden Finger connector. It also supports PCIe High Speed NVRAM with up to 8MB. Optionally, SmartBay™ is available for support of CFAST, CF, 2.5"/1.8" SSD, SATA DOM and USB devices with a key lock option.  EGL8650 has lifetime support until 2029. 

Keeping Security a Priority

As with all of EFCO’s digital display engines, security is a number one priority. Advanced security protection is provided through EFCO’s Gaming Software and Firmware Support kit. This kit includes SecuBoot™ and RootSecu™ with complete mechanisms to guarantee safe boot and prevent copying of your data.

Providing LED Lighting as a Standard Feature

LED strips should do more than display meaningless fixed patterns, and should instead be leveraged to add more content to the game. EFCO’s LED use pattern is extremely flexible and each strip can be operated independently of the game with its own select colors and patterns, allowing designers to reimagine the use and content of the LED strip.  In addition, EFCO has integrated this functionality into all of its gaming logic computers as a standard feature, at no additional cost – something that usually requires additional hardware.

EFCO’s LED strip package includes an LED strip driver, API, a GUI pattern creator, and provides support for one- and two-wire synchronized communication for 800 KHz and 25MHz LED strips. This LED strip package is compatible most LED strip specifications on the market.
