M595 | Dual-head Graphics XMC

The M595 is a dual-head graphics XMC that simultaneously drives two independent video streams in a wide variety of graphics and output formats for flexible video input and frame grabbing to meet a user’s specific application needs. It’s designed for a wide variety of rugged avionics applications, transferring graphics and video to the host system via a high speed eight-port PCIe link.

The high performance, single-width mezzanine board integrates multiple supporting 2D/3D hardware engines, such as graphics language accessories, parallel processing engines and video and audio decompression units, as well as complex 3D shading algorithms to support the most advanced graphics and video format standards.  This includes LVDS, SDI, HDI, SMPTE 292 and H.264 and graphics languages, such as DirectX, OpenGL and OpenCL. The PMC uses the advanced AMD/ATI E4690 graphics processing unit (GPU) operating at 600 MHz with a 512 MB on-chip GDDR3 SDRAM frame buffer.

The M595 is a supported phase product, to be used in active programs only. For new designs requiring a graphics XMC, see the M596. Learn more about our COTS Lifecycle+® obsolescence management program.
