The latest generation of NVIDIA® PascalTM and AMD Polaris GPUs are providing enormous increases in processing speed. However, these new GPUs have dropped native support for legacy analog formats. While this may be an obvious move for a GPU chip designer, whose primary market no longer requires analog support, it does present a challenge to customers who do still require legacy analog support. WOLF’s solution is a new FIT module, a Flexible Interface Technology module, which can be used to provide analog format support to new VPX products.

The FIT module is designed to provide up to 4 inputs and/or outputs. There are modules which provide different options: 2x RGB in and 2x out, 4xRGB in, 4x RGB out, 4x CVBS in and 4x CVBS out. Other options can also be provided as needed.

The module connects to the VPX carrier via a 200 pin high density, high speed connector.

The FIT module design is in keeping with WOLF’s modular design philosophy, providing a flexible way to support a variety of optional input and output formats. The FIT module is currently available for the WOLF-1110 and the WOLF-1010 3U VPX modules.
