Original Press Release
Eurocom Offers MXM 3.0b and MXM 3.0a Modular VGA Solutions
Press release date: Feb 25, 2014
Eurocom has been a leader in integrating MXM technology into systems since its creation, in fact, Eurocom introduced upgradeable / modular VGA in 1990, predating MXM specifications - in the 3300A and 3500 models.
Modular graphics solutions are ideal for high performance desktop replacement laptops and mobile workstations, embedded systems, SFF (Small Form Factor) PC and CUDA developers that require high performance GPUs.
Eurocom offers a complete line of fully configurable Notebooks, Mobile Workstations and Mobile Servers; from VGA to storage, from RAM to Processor, nearly everything can be configured to the application and performance requirements of the individual user.
Eurocom offers a complete line of fully upgradable MXM 3.0b and 3.0a VGA modules, allowing customers to upgrade to newer VGA technology, improve video performance and /or extend their notebook's lifespan.
The industry standard modular MXM 3.0b and 3.0a specification for graphics subsystems allows for improved cooling capability, reduced power and height, enabling engineers to create smaller, more efficient embedded systems, reduce development time and costs and to introduce new designs faster to market. Modular graphics solutions offer additional functionality as well as increased levels of performance compared to integrated graphics for developers of all kinds.
“Modular Graphics Processors allow for much more flexibility and the ability to provide various performance levels to far greater extents than typical embedded Graphics Processors. We are seeing many Embedded Systems Developers moving to Modular Graphics solutions because of the many benefits. Modular MXM technology assists companies with accelerating all phases of product development, testing and getting to the market" said Mark Bialic, President of Eurocom.
Eurocom offers a complete range of VGA solutions with different TDP ranging from 45W-100 W with various performance levels capable to meet most of the GPU requirements in such applications as CUDA Development, Signal Processing, Satellite imaging, Mapping, Surveillance, Image recognition, Robotics, Avionics, Digital signage, Medical imaging.
Graphics Cards Specifications
MXM 3.0b and MXM 3.0a cards provide great potential for small form factor, military, embedded systems as well as an upgrade path to users looking to improve the performance of their current notebook.
