Sets New Standards for Industrial 2D and 3D Applications 
Luterbach/Switzerland-based DIGITAL-LOGIC AG presents a new PC/104plus board – the MSMVA104+ - a high performance QXGA graphics controller that offers flexible display support, 2D and 3D acceleration, and low power consumption. The compact board is based on ATI Technologies’ MOBILITY™ RADEON™ 7500 (M7-CSP32) graphics controller with 32 MB DDR Video RAM and is designed for optimum performance in industrial applications. Connections include two CRT ports, a LVDS interface, a DVI connector, and a TV in/output (CVBS and S-Video).  
In addition, the PC/104plus board contains a fast 350 MHz DAC for high resolution up to 2048 x 1536 pixel (QXGA). The board is available with a comprehensive software package including several BIOS versions and drivers for Windows 98/2000/NT4.0/XP as well as the ATI HYDRAVISION™ software enabling support for multiple display combinations (DVI/LVDS, DVI/CRT, DVI/TV, CRT/TV, etc.). The board can be controlled via the integrated 24 bit LVDS interface up to resolutions of 2048 x 1536, the DVI compliant TMDS transmitter (165 MHz) up to resolutions of 1600 x 1200, or the TV-Output up to resolutions of 1024 x 768 pixel.  
Further technical features include ATI’s state-of-the-art THEATER™ video capture chip, 5.8 Gbit/s memory bandwidth, adaptive core and DDR RAM frequencies of 183/230 MHz for 3D and 66/66 MHz for 2D applications, a MPEG-2 hardware decoder (iDCT and motion compensation) to enable optimal DVD playback without increasing CPU activity, and 3D acceleration for both DX7 and OpenGL.  
The MSMVA104+ has dimensions of 90 mm x 96 mm x 15 mm (L x W x H). It requires a typical  
5 V/400 mA power supply and operates within the standard temperature range of 0°C to +70°C at a relative humidity between 0% and 90%. The board is extremly robust and resists shock up to 10g and vibrations from 5 Hz to 2000 Hz. An MTBF (mean time between failure) value of over 100,000 hours confirms the high level of reliability and longevity of the PC/104plus board.
