EIZO Rugged Solutions Inc. (formerly Tech Source, Inc.) has introduced its Adapt Series family of MIL-STD-810 rugged DisplayPort video format converters to allow customers to support a combination of new and legacy monitors in airborne, ground-based, and C4ISR applications.
The Adapt Series is designed to convert DisplayPort outputs to traditional video formats such as DVI or VGA and to support other connector types such as MIL-DTL-38999. The FPGA-based design of the Adapt Series allows EIZO to quickly add converters for other video formats, such as 3G-SDI and STANAG 3350 when required by customers.
Adapt products are designed for military-level shock and vibration (MIL-STD-810) environments and are able to operate at high temperatures of -40 to 85°C. No external power is required.
Selwyn L. Henriques, president and CEO of EIZO Rugged Solutions, said, “Our Adapt Series, the industry’s first rugged video format converters, provide a cost-effective, SWaP-efficient solution to customers that need to support several new and legacy monitors with different input formats. These new products alleviate the need for graphics/video board re-designs, for example, to add a new I/O interface and support to a particular monitor. It can also reduce the card count in certain applications where custom graphics/video cards would otherwise be the only solution to support a legacy display.”
The Adapt Series video format converters work with EIZO’s Condor GPGPU XMC graphics cards. For example, the Condor 4000xX-6DP XMC graphics card, which comes with six DisplayPort outputs on the rear XMC I/O, can be adapted using the video format converters to provide a combination of DVI, VGA, and DisplayPort outputs going to six different monitors.
