GE Fanuc Intelligent Platforms in Charlottesville, Va., is introducing the 6U VME V7812 dual-slot single-board computer with the Intel Xeon dual- or quad-core processor and ATI Radeon M72 graphics module for demanding military, industrial, and commercial applications, such as data encryption, flight simulation control, and video compression. The CPU boards use the newly-announced Intel 5100 MCH (memory controller hub) chipset, as well as AMD’s Unified Shader Architecture for advanced vertex and pixel processing in embedded graphics applications. The V7812 single-board computer can be optionally ordered as a VXS board, providing an additional Gigabit Ethernet connection routed to P-zero connector, in addition to the standard dual Gigabit Ethernet connections on the front panel. The Intel 5100 MCH provides six on-board PCI Express connections: one each to two Gigabit Ethernet controllers; one to the Tundra Tsi148 VME bridge; one to two PMC PCI-X expansion sites; one to the ATI GPU; and one to the SAS (serial-attached SCSI) controller. The result is on-board bandwidth significantly in advance of the V7812’s predecessor. The M72 graphics module features the ATI Radeon E2400 processor which delivers first-class HD (high-definition) decoding, display quality, and graphics horsepower. Dual graphics output is provided via one VGA connector and one DVI-I connector. For more information, visit GE Fanuc online at www.gefanucembedded.com.
