The PMCCG1 graphics board is designed to meet the needs of a wide range of graphics applications on host cards with PCI bus architectures. The PMCCG1's S3 2300E GPU is a perfect balance between high performance and low power for many military and aerospace applications. It provides 256 Mbytes of DDR2 local memory. With its PCI-X host interface, the PMCCG1 offers significantly higher performance than previous generations of PMC graphics cards, which were limited to 32-bit, 66 MHz operation.

On the mezzanine, the PCI bus is bridged to 4-lane PCI Express link to the GPU. Designed to be a pin-compatible superset of the PMCGA4C, the PMCCG1 offers two independent graphics channels in both analog VESA and digital DVI formats. In addition, there is a build-time option to convert one of the DVI outputs to LVDS.

The PMCCG1 has one channel of video input, which may be selected as RS-170, NTSC or PAL, in either CVBS or S-video formats. Driver support for the PMCCG1 Rugged PMC graphics mezzanine is available for both Intel® and PowerPC® platforms under VxWorks® and Integrity®, and for Intel under Microsoft® Windows® and Linux® operating systems. Contact Abaco Systems for support on safety-critical applications, and software to DO-178B.
