TUALATIN, Ore., 25 Sept. 2015. VersaLogic Corp. in Tualatin, Ore., is introducing the VL-EPM-V7 video expansion module for PC/104-Plus or PCI/104 embedded computing systems. The module comes in two different versions, and enable designers to add LVDS and VGA video outputs to embedded computer boards.

The PC/104-Plus version of the V7 supports PCI and ISA stackable expansion buses. The PCI-104 version supports only the PCI expansion bus. Both modules are based on the industry standard PC/104 form-factor that measures 3.55 by 3.78 inches.

The V7 uses a Silicon Motion SM750 embedded graphics processor with 16 megabytes of integrated RAM. The graphics processor delivers 2D graphics capabilities with simultaneous and independent analog VGA and LVDS video outputs.

The analog VGA video interface supports resolutions as fine as 1920-by-1080 pixels in 16-bit colors, and the LVDS interface supports resolutions as fine as 1280 by 1024 pixels with 18/24-bit color.

The graphics processor’s advanced power reduction (throttling) and power-down (sleep) controls, keep the power draw low in most embedded applications. The V7 supports simultaneous analog VGA and LVDS video output.

The V7 includes a PCI Express Mini card socket that accommodates plug-in data acquisition, MIL-STD-1553 interfaces, non-volatile flash data storage, and other plug-in expansion cards. On-board LEDs provide status for the socket.

The V7 is compatible with a variety of popular x86 operating systems including Windows, Windows Embedded, Linux, VxWorks, and QNX using standard software drivers. The on-board video BIOS also supports VESA standard graphics modes.

The V7 is designed and tested to operate in industrial temperature ranges of-40 85 degrees Celsius. It meets MIL-STD-202G specifications to withstand high shock and vibration. Latching connectors provide additional protection within harsh environments.
