HUNTSVILLE, Ala., 17 Oct. 2012. GE Intelligent Platforms in Huntsville, Ala., is introducing the XMCGA7 high-performance embedded computing graphics board for sophisticated, demanding graphics applications in harsh environments such as command and control workstations, radar consoles and cockpit displays.

The rugged XMCGA7 mezzanine board, which features the E6460 graphics processing unit from AMD, provides a form, fit and function upgrade to its predecessor, the XMCGA6, in military embedded systems and cockpit avionics.

Depending on the build variant, the XMCGA7 provides as many as four independent graphics channels that function either as two channels of DVI or VGA or four channels of DVI.
