The CM-VID-30 is color graphics module based on the AGAC (Advanced Graphic and Alphanumeruc Controller) TS-68483, incorporating features demanded in military & industrial applications.
CM-VID-30 is populated with eighteen 32 pin SRAM sockets, which provide up to 4.6 Mbytes of installed graphic SRAM.
This module allows operations with two independent graphic banks, each one provided with a frame buffer of up to 2048x2048 pixels and four color planes.
The metallic layer within the PCB benefits heat dissipation & uniform component temperatures, thus increasing component longevity & module MTBF.
The color palette offers 8 bit resolution and provides up to 4.19 million different colors. The BT-453 output video levels accords with the RS-343 A specifications.
Military versions with thermal overlay greatly improve capability to withstand shock & vibration.
The CM-VID-30 offer three output video connectors. Three coaxial and one cannon 9 pin connector are used to output analog video, one cannon 9 pin connector is dedicated to TTL RGBI output.
All versions are compatible at the function level, Industrial versions allow low cost software development.
