Curtiss-Wright Controls Embedded Computing has introduced the first of a new series of dual-channel, high resolution PMC graphics controllers for VME, CompactPCI and PCI systems.
The new AtlasPMC/1D is based on ATI Technologies’ RADEON Mobility 9000 (M9) mobile graphics processor and supports dual 2D, 3D, OpenGL, and DirectX
compatible displays with up to 16.7 million colors (24 bpp).
The M9 features
64 MB of integrated memory, reduced-power optimizations, integrated video
output, and quad-pipeline 2D/3D acceleration to reduce host processor
The AtlasPMC/1D is designed for use in 0C to +70C, operating environments and integrates high performance display graphics into VME and CompactPCI systems and displays analog VGA screen resolutions up to 1920x1200 over both of its front panel connectors. The card can also be configured to output dual digital video (DVI) channels at resolutions up to 1600x1200 (1920x1200 with reduced blanking intervals). TV video signal output (NTSC/PAL) is supported on the card’s second channel and Sync-On-Green (SOG) can be enabled on both channels.
The PMC card’s VGA/FCode BIOS allows the board to operate in virtually
any x86, PowerPC, or SPARC system and supports Linux, Windows, and Solaris operating environments.
The board also features a number of unique design attributes including: VGA and DVI via the PMC front panel; DVI and MDR20 connectors that connect to standard DVI cables (MDR20 is DFP compatible); an on-board 3V regulator for compatibility with all VME CPU boards; full Windows compatibility including power management and BIOS auto-detect; an alternate version (AtlasPMC/1V) that has dual front panel VGA connectors; support for non-interlaced, interlaced, and sync-on-green on both VGA/RGB channels; and a PMC host interface is compatible with 32 and 64-bit PCI and PCI-X.
Pricing for the AtlasPMC/1D is $1,750.00 in single unit quantities.
