FalconXMC

High Resolution
VGA or DVI Graphics

RGB Digitizers
Dual Channel Outputs



Rastergraf's FalconXMC is a display controller and video capture XMC (PCIe Mezzanine Card) board. The card is designed for use under Windows XP-10 and Linux (using Rastergraf’s SDL or XFree86) operating environments. It is also supported on VxWorks 5.5/5.6 (using nd River’s WindML or SDL).

The FalconXMC 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 FalconXMC 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.

Rastergraf’s user-configurable I/O Resource Matrix maximizes I/O flexibility, enabling most functions to be connected to either the front or rear panel.

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.

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.

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.

FalconPIM

The FalconPIM (PMC I/O Module) is used with the FalconXMC.

The FalconPIM can be built to support either 2 VGA connectors or one DVI connector plus 20-pin MDR I/O connector.
