Press Release Summary:
VGASTANAG module converts non-interlaced VGA output of up to 1,280 x 1,024 SXGA resolution from any standard graphics source to STANAG 3350-compliant signals. All three STANAG frequencies - Class A/B/C - are available in standard or extended temperature versions of this PCI-104 form factor module, and no device driver software is required. In addition to timing generator, features include analog signal digitization, video scaling, frame rate conversion capabilities.
Original Press Release:
Embedded Module Converts VGA to High-Quality STANAG 3350 Signals
Advanced Micro Peripherals' new VGASTANAG module converts non-interlaced VGA output of up to 1280 x 1024 SXGA resolution from any standard graphics source to high-quality STANAG 3350 compliant signals. All three STANAG frequencies - Class A, B and C - are available, in standard or extended temperature versions of the module. The STANAG 3350 signal is output as separate red, green and blue components, with the video synchronization pulses embedded in the green component. Internally, the VGASTANAG module features high speed analog signal digitization, video scaling and frame rate conversion, and a timing generator. This provides seamless and automatic conversion of progressive analog VGA input to interlaced RGB output conforming to STANAG 3350 requirements. The VGASTANAG is an intelligent stand-alone device with its own on-board CPU. It is operating system independent and requires no device driver software. Operating from a single +5V power supply, the PCI-104 form factor module can be used stand-alone or mounted on a PCI-104 or PC/104-Plus stack for a compact, convenient embedded solution without demanding host CPU resources. The module supports simultaneous VGA and STANAG displays. Typical applications include aerospace instrumentation, instrument panels, video surveillance and multi-function display units (MFDUs).
