Manufacturer: Aitech

The M590 Multi-Standard Graphics and Video PMC is powered by the ATI advanced M9 graphics processor. The M9 processor, with its 64 MB frame buffer array, easily supports high-resolution 2D and 3D applications.

This high-performance graphics PMC has dual independent video head outputs that enable two different information streams to be simultaneously output to two different monitors, analogue and/or digital. The M590 supports a wide variety of monitors, both interlaced (NTSC, PAL, RS-343) and advanced non-interlaced (VGA, RGBHV, RGsB, DVI, LVDS).

In addition, the M590 PMC provides advanced video overlay functionality. The M9 processor generates the graphics images, superimposes an input from one of the various video formats, and drives the result to a monitor. A second overlay process can be implemented simultaneously on the independent second stream, using different video input. This process is routed to the FPGA for output.

The M590 is designed for maximum performance in harsh environment applications. The M590 software package supports all onboard capabilities, including OpenGL and standard VGA.
