Flat Panel Graphics Card for CompactPCI

Equipped for all flat panels

Kaufbeuren, Germany, April 19, 1999 - Flat panels are being increasingly used as operator interfaces for industrial applications. According to a study conducted by the magazine Control Engineering the proportion of flat panels used in the next generation of equipment installations should exceed the 50% mark. For these displays PEP Modular Computers is now introducing onto the market the CP331 High Performance Graphics Controller Card for CompactPCI in single-height format. The board is equipped with a high performance Chips & Technology 69000 graphics controller in state-of-the-art technology, enabling resolutions from VGA (640x480) through to SXGA (1280x1024).

The controller card is fitted with interfaces for CRT (VGA monitor) and flat-panel displays with the three different connection technologies, TTL, LVDS or PanelLink, enabling it to support the complete range of flat-panel displays from TFT, DSTN, SSTN, EL and Plasma in both colour and monochrome versions. Not only that, parallel operation of CRT monitors and flat-panel displays is possible.

The high performance capability of the graphics controller has been achieved partly by the integrated 2 MB video RAM and the hardware accelerator using a 64-bit BitBLT (Bit Block Transfer) engine.

The CP331 High Performance Graphics Controller Card provides software support for Windows NT and Zinc for VxWorks and will be available from June 1999.
