Multi-display controller board for radar and video surveillance introduced by MEN Micro

AMBLER, Pa., 3 April 2012. MEN Micro Inc. in Ambler, Pa., is introducing the G214 3U CompactPCI Serial multi-display controller board based on the AMD Radeon processor architecture for video surveillance in control rooms and simulators, radar processing, video imaging, and other embedded computing applications that require general purpose graphics processing units (GPGPUs).

The peripheral board for military embedded systems can control as many as six high-resolution displays. In a pure CompactPCI Serial configuration, the single-board computer can control as many as seven multi-display boards with four ports each, totaling 28 different displays for applications that require several screens networked on one system. Displays can be merged into one large picture or deliver different contents.

The peripheral board uses AMD's Radeon E6760 graphics processing unit operating at 600 MHz that also features a programmable 3D graphics engine supporting Microsoft DirectX 11. This board comes with a third generation unified video decoder that enables dual HD decoding of H.264, VC-1, MPEG4 and MPEG2 compressed video streams.

The G214 comes with four DisplayPort 1.2 interfaces that each has a maximum resolution of 4096 by 2560 pixels at 60 Hz and a color depth of 24 bits per pixel. It can also be equipped with a wider front panel that offers two additional DisplayPorts each with a resolution of 2560 by 1600 pixels.

Six single-instruction, multiple-data (SIMD) parallel-processing engines combined with 80 processing elements provide 480 shaders at 576 billion floating point operations per second.

Power consumption is a maximum of 35 Watts, with a mean time between failures logged at more than 150,000 hours according to IEC/TR 62380. The board can withstand as much shock as 50 m/s2 for 30 ms as well as 1 m/s2 (functioning) and 7.9 m/s2 (lifetime) of vibration from 5 Hz to 150 Hz.

The board operates at temperature 0 to 60 degrees Celsius. For more information contact Men Micro online at www.menmicro.com.
