GE Fanuc Intelligent Platforms recently introduced the V7812 dual slot single board computer (SBC). The V7812 SBC provides an ideal computing platform for demanding commercial, industrial, and military applications that require the quad-core processing performance of the Intel Xeon processor and the advanced capabilities of the ATI Radeon M72 graphics module. Such applications would typically include data encryption, flight simulation control, and video compression.
The V7812 offers either an Intel Dual- or Quad-Core LV Xeon processor with 4 Mbytes of L2 cache to deliver outstanding performance. Graphics capability is provided via the inclusion of the ATI Radeon M72 graphics module which takes advantage of the latest 65nm fabrication process to deliver high performance with low power consumption. The M72 features AMD’s unique Unified Shader Architecture which brings advanced vertex and pixel processing to embedded graphics applications.
The V7812 can be optionally ordered as a VXS board, providing an additional Gigabit Ethernet connection routed to P0 in addition to the standard dual Gigabit Ethernet connections on the front panel.
The Intel 5100 MCH provides six on-board PCI Express connections: one each to two Gigabit Ethernet controllers; one to the Tundra Tsi148 VME bridge; one to the two PMC PCI-X expansion sites; one to the ATI GPU; and one to the SAS (serial-attached SCSI) controller. The result is on-board bandwidth significantly in advance of the V7812′s predecessor.
The M72 graphics module features the ATI Radeon E2400 processor which delivers first class HD (high definition) decoding, display quality and graphics horsepower. Dual graphics output is provided via one VGA connector and one DVI-I connector.
Support is provided for up to 4 GBytes of DDR2 ECC SDRAM, six USB 2.0 ports, and four Gigabit Ethernet ports (two via optional VXS). An optional 120 GBytes 2.5″ SATA disk or 8 Gbyte SSD SATA drive can optionally be configured on the board. Operating system support is provided for Windows XP and Linux.
