PMC-704A

Dual Input Output Graphics PCI Mezanine Card based on the AMD RADEON MOBILITY 9000 (M9) that supports both legacy and current video interfaces, making it an ideal solution for both new and retrofit ground, naval and avionics platforms.

Overview

The PMC-704A COTS PCI Mezzanine Card (PMC) is a feature-rich rugged graphics and video capture card designed to deploy in harsh environments. This IEEE 1386.1-compliant Graphics PMC module is ideal for use in rugged applications such as Helmet Mounted Displays (HMD), Heads Up Displays (HUD), Avionics cockpit displays, command and control and digital moving maps among others.

The PMC-704A is based on the AMD RADEON MOBILITY 9000 (M9) and supports both legacy and current video interfaces. It is an ideal solution for both new and retrofit ground, naval and avionics platforms.

Genlock capability is also available and may be used to synchronize multiple displays or to synchronize a display against a capture device or reference signal. For applications that do not require video capture, please refer to the PMC-706A Graphics PMC module [ graphics and video capture card ] which has similar graphics capability to the PMC-704A COTS PCI Mezzanine Card without the video capture and genlock capability.

OpenGL 1.3, X11R6 and Video Capture drivers, collectively known as the Graphics Software Suite (GSS) is available from Curtiss-Wright for most major Real-time Operating Systems (RTOS). The OpenGL driver supports both indirect mode rendering using the X Protocol and the higher performance direct rendering directly interfacing with the GPU for applications running locally.

Rugged Graphics and video capture card, PMC-704A has the highest Technology Readiness Level (TRL) and the longest life cycle in the industry, with over 10,000 units deployed in rugged applications over 10 years. Still available today, the COTS PCI Mezzanine Card continues to offer the best value, lowest risk embedded graphics solution.
