Aitech M595 - Radeon E4690 Video & Graphics XMC

Dual Independent Graphics Heads, 512 MB GDDR3, Analog and Digital Video Outputs

Introduction

Aitech's M595 Dual Head Multiple Output Graphics XMC provides a high-performance, highly versatile embedded video and graphics solution for harsh environment applications. Designed around the AMD/ATI E4690 Dual Head Graphics Processing Unit with its 512 MB GDDR3 SDRAM frame buffer array, the M595 can simultaneously drive two independent video streams in a wide variety of output formats. It integrates multiple supporting hardware engines such as graphics language accelerators, parallel processing engines, video and audio de-compression units, and more.

The M595 supports the most advanced graphics and video standards including DirectX, OpenGL, and H.264, as well as multiple and versatile graphics and video output protocols. Most of the standard M595 output video channels are provided through E4690 native integrated video ports. Additional videoprotocols/formats and signal conditioning are provided by an optional sophisticated FPGA residing alongside the E4690 GPU, to complement the GPU's capabilities.

To ensure high-speed transfer of graphics and video, the M595 interconnects with the host system via an 8-port PCIe link.

The M595 is equipped with graphics BIOS (by AMD/ATI), making it available for use in x86 based platforms, including Microsoft Windows and several Linux distributions. For these platforms, standard software drivers (available from AMD/ATI) can be used. In addition, OpenGL packages are available to support the VxWorks and INTEGRITY RTOSes, and also to support PowerPC architectures.
