Rugged E9171 for Safety-Critical with up to Five 4K Outputs

Stouffville, ON, January 23, 2019 -- Wolf Advanced Technology (WOLF) is pleased to announce its XMC-E9171-VO (WOLF 3196) board with support for up to five 4K outputs and support for real-time operating system (RTOS) VXWorks, Windows and Linux drivers, with additional RTOS drivers available upon request.


"Safety critical applications can require certified real-time operating systems and this product includes RTOS driver support which will enable their use in those demanding military and aerospace applications", said Craig McLaren, CEO of WOLF. "The XMC-E9171-VO is one of the boards we are building for NASA, along with an XMC-FGX2-SDI-4IO (Wolf 3180) to support their X-59 QueSST Aircraft."

This product is manufactured in North America with full component traceability and has been designed specifically for use in harsh environments with mission-critical reliability requirements. The XMC-E9171 has been designed to operate within an extended temperature range of -40° to +85°C. These products are designed to pass MIL-STD-810 and RTCA DO-160 environmental tests.

The Wolf XMC-E9171-VO features a chip-down rugged design which incorporates AMD's E9171 Radeon™ GPU. AMD’s latest 14nm Polaris architecture provides almost double the performance at the same power compared to the previous generation AMD E8860 GPUs. It features a 4GB GDDR5 memory with a 128-bit width, 1.25 TFLOPS GPGPU performance, and dynamic power management with real-time operating control from 15W to 50W.

Video features for the XMC-E9171-VO include support for up to five 4K DisplayPort 1.4 outputs with High Dynamic Range (HDR) video, 12-bit color depth, and HEVC (H.265) and AVC (H.264) hardware encode and decode. Up to PCIe x8 Gen 3 is supported.

Software API support includes DirectX® 12, OpenCL™ 2.0, OpenGL® 4.5, and Vulkan™.
