Dy 4 Announces Highly Integrated, Rugged Graphics/Imaging Platform

6/17/2002 - Dy 4 Systems, a division of Force Computers, a Solectron company, and a leading designer and manufacturer of COTS VME and CompactPCI products for harsh environments, has introduced Cornerstone (SVME/DMV-712), the industry's first imaging platform to integrate two high-performance graphics controllers, CPU, PMC expansion and industry-standard X11/OpenGL software on a single VME-based ruggedized card. Designed for a diverse range of display applications in mission-critical military vehicles such as ground vehicles and combat and surveillance aircraft, Cornerstone can be used to capture and display multiple sources of video with synthetic symbology overlays such as in target tracking and identification, moving-map displays and for multi-function flight instrumentation. Its two completely independent image/graphics channels allow dual displays to be driven from a single module. A wide range of standard analog and digital graphics I/O modes is available. Custom graphics I/O is also easily supported through the sophisticated FPGA (field programmable gate array) implementation found on the Cornerstone card. Connectivity is simplified by onboard Ethernet, USB, serial and digital I/O interfaces.
