The AT-XMC-GRA is a new dual display graphics module providing a versatile, high performance graphics subsystem featuring high speed switched XMC Mezzanine module for Graphics solutions with PCIe as the bus interface. Using MB86298 ‘Ruby’ Graphics controller from Fujitsu, the module enables these systems to take full advantage of Fujitsu’s advanced graphics technology. A ruggedized, high-performance, low power dissipation, flexible and many more features make this card ideal for use in various high reliability embedded systems. These high-density high-performance cards are suitable for applications ranging from test equipment to rugged deployable systems. The AT-XMC-GRA module supports two independent high-resolution dual screen displays, each either VGA or DVI-D. The Module supports two DVI-D outputs and two Analog VGA outputs on P16 Connector. Two micro-HDMI connectors with DVI interface and VGA connectors may optionally be installed in the front panel area for development use. This module plugs into a standard XMC site on any compatible carrier and drives two independent displays through the full-size DVI-I and VGA ports on its front panel. Displays can have independent refresh rates, resolution and color control, offering great flexibility.

Hardware

The MB86298 ‘Ruby’ Graphics Display Controller combines high-performance New 2D/3D graphics engine with a general-purpose, programmable Unified Shader including support for the OpenGL shading language with a shading language compiler (SL Compiler) with an integrated DDR-2 SDRAM controller and a high speed x1 PCI-Express communications link. The GPU has two display controllers with maximum resolution of 1280 x 1024 or 1600 x 600 pixels with 8 layers of overlay per display controller. 4 alpha planes, either a constant alpha value or alpha from pixel data are available for blending on each layer. Four independent Video capture channels supporting SD video input with embedded syncs according to the ITU-R BT.656 standard, PAL and NTSC resolutions and frame rates, HD video input 720p progressive format according to the SMPTE 296M standard (50 and 60Hz frame rates) and DRGB888 type video input with dedicated sync signals are also available. The Module supports two DVI-D inputs from P16 Connector, RGsB (sync on green) input and one analog interlaced input PAL (CCIR/STANAG B) / NTSC (RS-170A/STANAG -C) composite video / S-VIDEO / Component Video. Optional 24bit RGB [888] output for direct digital interface to standard LCD modules. A combination of an intelligent board along with this module provides for a ready solution to build Rugged Smart Multi Function Display systems. All logic functionality on-board the module are implemented through an FPGA device. The FPGA is used as an I2C master to alternatively configure and control peripheral video processing devices. It also interfaces to GPIO’s for interrupts and SPI Debug Interface from Ruby controller.
