CHATSWORTH, Calif. – Aitech Defense Systems Inc. in Chatsworth, Calif., is introducing the CB912 VideoPaC 3U VPXembedded computing" target='_blank'>embedded computing board to enhance graphics processing in dense computing applications like glass cockpit displays, mission computers, situational awareness, C4ISR, and electronic warfare (EW) systems.

The CB912 combines two powerful processing boards and advanced software bundles into an integrated platform that provides graphics computing in a single-slot, SWaP-optimized, rugged package.

The PowerPC-based VideoPaC pairs a 3U VPX single-slot single-board computer with a video and graphics XMC mezzanine that features the AMD E8860 Radeon graphics processing unit (GPU.) This combination offers a video imaging FPGA, which provides video input interfaces and additional output interfaces not natively supported by the GPU.

Integrated software bundles provide users with real-world solutions for their mission- and flight safety-critical, DO178 Level A imaging, high-end graphics and data processing applications.

Software bundles include Wind River VxWorks and VxWorks A653, and GreenHills INTEGRITY and INTEGRITY-178 with tuMP (True Multi-Processing), coupled with CoreAVI's FACE-compliant, OpenGL SC (Safety Critical) or Richland Technologies VIPUR/RTGL certifiable graphics/video software drivers.
