LEESBURG, Va., 8 Nov. 2005. Curtiss-Wright Controls Embedded Computing in Leesburg, Va., introduced a video-capture dual-channel, high resolution PMC graphics controllers called the AtlasPMC/2 PMC card.

The board delivers video, RGB, and DVI input capability and multimedia features including dual-head analog or DVI output display, stereo audio I/O, and an on-board USB 2.0 controller. The AtlasPMC/2 also eases the integration of VME, CompactPCI and PCI systems.

The AtlasPMC/2 is based on the ATI Technologies RADEON Mobility 9000 (M9) mobile graphics processor, which supports dual 2D, 3D, OpenGL, and DirectX compatible displays with as many as 16.7 million colors.

The Windows-compatible M9 card has 64 megabytes of integrated memory, reduced-power optimizations, integrated video output, and quad-pipeline 2D/3D acceleration. The card's host bus interface uses a 32/64-bit PCI/PCI-X bridge that enables the on-board components to operate at their top speed, unaffected by host side bus activity.

This single PMC card displays analog VGA screen resolutions up to 1920 by 1200 pixels over its front panel DVI-I and MDR20 connectors.

The AtlasPMC/2 offers M9-based dual display design provides single or dual VGA and DVI; USB 2.0 controller; stereo audio I/O controller; Supports dual channel output and NTSC simultaneously; NTSC, PAL, SECAM, RGB or DVI video input via the PMC front panel (second channel of video capture via the USB connector); DVI-I and MDR20 connectors that connect to standard interfaces; breakout cables are available for extended features; on-board 3V regulator for compatibility with all VME CPU boards; on-board thermal sensor; Windows compatibility including power management and BIOS auto-detect; and PCI/PCI-X compliant, 32/64-bit 33/66/100/133 MHz.
