April 13, 2016- Abaco Systems announced the XMCGA8 XMC High Performance Graphics Board. Designed for customers requiring the ability to deliver safety-critical applications certified to DO-178 and DO-254 with long term support, it can provide four DVI ports.
The VITA 42-compliant XMCGA8 is available with the AMD/CoreAVI Radeon E8860 ‘Adelaar’ graphics processing unit. The CoreAVI chip set is supported by low level operating system graphics drivers (OpenGL) for VxWorks 6.9 and VxWorks 653 safety-critical applications. Certifiable artifacts will be available from CoreAVI that can support a DAL A system design.
The XMCGA8’s graphics processing capability makes it ideal for applications such as video stitching and sensor fusion in wide area surveillance applications, allowing the incorporation of data from multiple sensor types to build a complete picture of a large geographical area.
As well as being capable of supporting demanding graphical applications, the XMCGA8 can also be deployed as a GPGPU (general purpose computing on a graphics processing unit) platform for applications such as ISR (intelligence, surveillance, reconnaissance), radar and sonar.
The XMCGA8 can provide up to four DVI outputs at resolutions up to 1,920 x 1,200 at 60Hz and up to two VESA VGA outputs at the same resolutions. It is available in a range of configurations and can be air- or conduction-cooled. A VITA 61 variant is also available.
