The dFLAT-PEG-M72 supports the PCI Express Graphics (PEG) Standard. It is based on the Radeon Mobility series of graphic controllers and comes with the HD2400 controller.

Kontron dFLAT-PEG-M72 digital graphics controller for industrial applicationsThe highlight of the dFLAT-PEG-M72 is the “Unified Video Decoder” (UVD) from the ATI HD family which greatly reduces the load on the processor when it comes to processing multimedia content and HDTV playback. As such, it also improves the energy/thermal balance. Graphic memory is available with either 128 MB or 256 MB of storage capacity. DirectX10, OpenGL2.0 and Shader Model 4.0 amongst others ensure the latest 3D acceleration. Two independent video engines together with the flexible output matrix enable extended desktop and dual application operation in almost any display combination.

Flat panels are connected directly via the convenient and price-optimized JILI30 interface (LVDS) for which a large number of cables are available. Kontron’s flat panel configurator provides information for all currently available cables. 2 x CRT, 2 x DVI and a TV output provide external monitor connections. A HDMI connection can be established via the DVI-to-HDMI adapter.

Kontron guaranties the long-term availability of several years for the dFLAT-PEG-M72, providing customers with the security needed for long-term planning as well as investment security.
