Aitech has developed an XMC with five graphics outputs based around a standalone AMD graphics processor unit (GPU)
The rugged M599 is designed for mission critical platforms requiring real-time operating systems (RTOS) to drive multi-displays, enable 3D and 4K content as well as handle high general purpose (GPGPU) computing needs. The M599 uses the AMD E9171 1.2 TFLOPS GPU and is certified to DAL-A, if required for avionics applications, and meets VITA 47 requirements for shock and vibration.
It operates as a peripheral XMC board with a compatible x86 or NXP host SBC, which interconnects to the XMC via a high speed PCIe Gen3 link of up to eight lanes.
“The number of high-resolution video and data input sources for rugged embedded systems keeps increasing. GPGPU computing allows the CPU and OS to remain responsive even when the system is under a heavy load, by offloading the intensive operations to the GPU. The M599, our latest graphics XMC, can now deliver 3D and 4K graphics to mission critical embedded systems and keep pace with market evolutions,” said Dan Mor, Director, Video and GPGPU Product Line for Aitech.
The XMC is safety-certifiable, handling up to five simultaneous displays for heads-up displays and moving maps as well as navigation and many unmanned vehicles for land, air and sea, and is It is available in conduction- and air-cooled versions
The rugged graphics card supports a number of APIs including Vulkan, OpenCL, OpenGL and DirectX as well as interfaces with Windows and Linux operating systems and RT OSes like VxWorks and Integrity. It handles 4K HEVC/H.265 and AVC/H.264 decode and encode and parallel processing using OpenCL.
