Aitech Unveils New AMD-powered PMC Board Capable of Driving Several Video Streams At Once
Aitech Defense Systems Inc. has unveiled a new video and graphics PMC in their vast line of AMD-driven solutions. Dubbed M598, the PMC is based on the AMD Radeon E8860 (Andelaar) GPU, and provides six independent graphics heads with 2 GB of GDDR5 operating at up to 1125 MHz.
In addition to this, the versatile PMC also offers advanced video overlay functionality, which allows for an input from one of the video formats to be superimposed, followed by the final image sent to a monitor.
The technical specifications of this latest AMD-powered PMC board from Aitech include:
- AMD Radeon E8860 Andelaar processor
- Multiple independent video stream capture and overlay functionality
- Optional FPGA for additional supported video protocols and formats
- High performance video and graphics processing and high-speed transfers
Further, the typical power consumption at idle is 15.7 W and max 33.8 W when running at 625 MHz. As for I/O ports, the board provides DVI, HDMI, RGBHV and composite/S-Video outputs as well as STANAG 3350 and composite/S-Video inputs.
According to Aitech, the M598 is ideal for a number of graphics-intensive display computing environments. These include fixed- and rotary-wing mission and cockpit display computers, electro-optical (EO) video camera, EO night vision and Infrared (IR) video frame grabbing, and multi-role tactical mission displays found in advanced 2D and 3D C4ISR and EW video processing systems.
The board offers enhanced graphic and video support, including DirectX 11.1, OpenGL 4.2, OpenCL 1.2 and Shader 5.0.
