CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va., 6 Dec. 2009. GE Fanuc Intelligent Platforms in Charlottesville, Va., is introducing the rugged XMCGA6 graphics processorExpress Mezzanine Card (XMC) for applications in harsh environments.

The XMCGA6 graphics board uses either the NVIDIA G72 or G73 graphics processing unit (GPU), developed originally for high-end consumer gaming, and builds on the relationship between GE Fanuc and NVIDIA Corp.

The XMCGA6 embedded graphics module supports 8-lane PCI Express to communicate with a host single board computer. It also can adapt automatically to 4-lane PCI Express, and has as much as 256 megabytes of GDDR3 memory (G73).

Dual, independent channels enable the XMCGA6 to drive RGB analog component video and digital DVI 1.0 at maximum resolutions of 1,600 by 1,200 pixels. The XMCGA6's video input capability allows integration of sensor data using RS170, NTSC or PAL video formats.
