VersaLogic Announces Extended Temperature Mini PCIe Video Expansion

Copperhead (VL-EBX-41) - EBX SBC with 3rd Generation Intel Core processorsTualatin, OR — May 6, 2014 — VersaLogic Corp., the embedded industry's most trusted computer company, today announced the VL-MPEe-V5, a new video Mini PCIe expansion module for embedded systems. The extremely small Mini PCIe format of the rugged VL-MPEe-V5 module provides a simple, economical, and standardized way to add LVDS and VGA video outputs to embedded computer boards. When combined with VersaLogic's EPM-P2E (PC/104-Plus to mini PCIe adapter), the V5 module can be used as a development tool for VersaLogic's headless (no video output) PC/104 single board computers, or to add an additional video output to any PC/104 stack.

"Customers continue to request additional video displays for their embedded systems, and the V5 module offers an easy way to add extra LVDS and/or VGA video outputs to a board," said Kerry Howell, VersaLogic Product Manager. "The V5 is further proof of VersaLogic's commitment to supporting OEMs with a broad range of rugged I/O expansion options."

Graphics Processor

The V5's Silicon Motion SM750 embedded graphics processor, with 16 MB integrated RAM, delivers 2D graphics capabilities with simultaneous and/or independent analog VGA and LVDS video outputs. The analog VGA video interface supports up to 1920 x 1080 (16-bit color) and the LVDS interface supports up to 1280 x 1024 (18/24-bit color). The graphics processor's advanced power reduction (throttling) and power-down (sleep) controls, keep the power draw low in most embedded applications.

Operating System Support

The V5 is compatible with a variety of popular x86 operating systems including Windows, Windows Embedded, Linux, VxWorks, and QNX using standard software drivers. The on-board video BIOS also supports VESA standard graphics modes.

For Extreme Environments

The V5 is designed and tested for industrial temperature (-40° to +85°C) operation and meets MIL-STD-202G specifications to withstand high shock and vibration. Latching connectors provide additional protection within harsh environments.

Additional Product Information

The V5 is covered by VersaLogic's 5-year product warranty and exclusive 5+ year production life guarantee. Customization services are available even in low OEM quantities. Customization options include conformal coating, revision locks, custom labeling, custom testing and screening, and more.

Pricing and Availability

The V5 (VL-MPEe-V5E) will be available from stock in early Q3 of 2014. Pricing is $187 in OEM quantities. Visit DigiKey.com, contact Sales@VersaLogic.com, or visit www.VersaLogic.com for more information.
