Manufacturer: Aitech

Aitech's M598 6-Head Multiple Output Graphics PMC provides a high-performance, highly versatile embedded video and graphics solution for harsh environment applications. Designed around the AMD E8860 Six Head Graphics Processing Unit with its 2 GB of GDDR5, the M598 can simultaneously drive several independent video streams in a wide variety of output formats.

The M598 supports the most advanced graphics and video standards including DirectX, OpenGL, and H.264, as well as multiple and versatile graphics and video input/output protocols. A number of the standard M598 output video channels are provided through E8860 native integrated video ports. Additional video protocols/formats and signal conditioning are provided by an optional sophisticated FPGA residing alongside the E8860 GPU, to complement the GPU's capabilities.

In addition, the M598 provides advanced video overlay functionality. The E8860 processor generates the graphics images, superimposes an input from one of the various video formats, and drives the result to a monitor. Several independent overlay processes may be implemented simultaneously. The resultant video streams can be routed to the FPGA for output on an interface not supported natively by the GPU.

To ensure the high-speed transfer of graphics and video, the M598 interconnects with the host system via a 64-bit PCI-X link.
