CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va., 25 Nov. 2009. GE Fanuc Intelligent Platforms in Charlottesville, Va., is introducing the SE 2 6U VME rugged graphics board for graphics-intensive applications in rugged systems like digital mapping and distributed aperture sensors.

The VMEembedded graphics board combines an Intel Core2 Duo processor operating as fast as 2.26 GHz, an NVIDIA graphics processor (G72 or G73) and a 10 Gigabit Ethernet network interface card.

Typical applications for the SE 2 VME graphics processor include digital mapping, where the requirement is to render significant amounts of graphics data in close to real-time, and distributed aperture sensors that need to acquire and process substantial quantities of visual information.

System throughput is by x16 PCI Express between the Intel and NVIDIA processors. The board has as much as eight gigabytes of DDR2 SDRAM, four serial ports, six USB 2.0 ports, and PS/2 mouse and keyboard ports.

The SE2 is optionally available with a x4 PCI Express interface (replaces the 10 Gigabit Ethernet interface), an on-board solid state SATA disk drive and one channel redundant MIL-STF-1553 interface. Five levels of ruggedization – from benign to conduction-cooled – are available.

Software support includes Wind River's VxWorks 6.6, Windows XP and Windows Vista as well as Linux. For more information contact GE Fanuc online at www.gefanuc.com.
