VGA, DVI, and LVDS Graphics
with Video, STANAG, DVI, and
Dual Channel Outputs
Rastergraf's FalconPMC is a display controller and video capture PMC (PCI Mezzanine Card) board. The card is designed for use under VxWorks (using Wind Rivers WindML or Rastergrafs SDL) and Linux (using SDL or XFree86) operating environments. It also supports DirectX environments running Windows.
The FalconPMC features a Silicon Motion SM768 System On a Chip (SOC) graphics accelerator with 256 Mbytes of on-chip DDR3. This 128-bit 2D graphics engine supports compatible displays at up to full HD (1920x1080).
The FalconPMC features the Conexant Bt835 NTSC/PAL/S-Video and Analog Devices AD9882 High Speed RGB/DVI digitizers. STANAG 3350 A-C input signals can be captured through the AD9882. A loopback can connect Video Output to Input for self-testing.
Rastergrafs factory configured I/O Resource Matrix maximizes I/O flexibility, enabling most functions to be connected to either the front or rear panel. Please contact Rastergraf for more information.
FalconPMC Build Versions
The FalconPMC signals provided on its
front panel or PMC Pn4 I/O connector are as follows.
The FalconPMC can be built to support either
2 VGA connectors, one DVI connector plus 20-pin MDR I/O connector,
or one MDR 26-pin connectors.
Although not a conduction cooled design, the FalconPMC is laid out in a Conduction Cooled PMC (CCPMC) compatible format with Primary and Secondary Thermal Interface area for easy use in all environments.
An ST Micro STM32F427 ARM CPU is used to provide Built-In Self Test (BIST) and real-time monitoring of most FalconPMC functions. Monitoring is implemented using I2C/SMbus, JTAG, voltage, and temperature. Reporting is done via LEDs and USB.
Rastergraf's support philosophy recognizes the lead-in and life-cycle requirements expected by the embedded computing market.
The FalconPMC-PIM (PMC I/O Module) is used with the FalconPMC.
It is used with a compatible Rear Transition Module (RTM) for VME, CompactPCI, or OpenVPX.
Pn4 (PMC) rear-panel I/O connector access is supported. Pn4 sgnals can be accessed via a standard PMC PIM (PMC I/O Module) connector.
