M597 | Dual-head Graphics and Video PMC

The dual-head M597 graphics PMC 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.  The M597 transfers graphics and video to the host system via a high speed eight port PCIe link and includes advanced video functions with analog and digital video input and overlay for exceptional flexibility via 100 MHz connectivity using a 64-bit PCI-X bus.

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 and complex 3D shading algorithms to support the most advanced graphics and video format standards.  An advanced AMD/ATI E4690 graphics processing unit (GPU) operates at 600 MHz with a 512 MB on-chip GDDR3 SDRAM frame buffer.  The PMC is exceptionally suited for a wide variety of rugged avionics applications.

The M597 is a supported phase product, to be used in active programs only. For new designs requiring a graphics PMC, see the M598. Learn more about our COTS Lifecycle+® obsolescence management program.
