GE Fanuc Embedded Systems (Albuquerque, NM) offers the 3U VPX MAGIC1 Rugged Display Processor, an integrated sub- system consisting of the 2.0 GHz Intel Core Duo processor-based SBC340 single board computer and GRA110 graphics processor. The MAGIC1 rugged subsystem lets system designers develop and deploy more sophisticated display applications than has previously been possible. The graphics display processor supports VAPS, GL Studio, and iData display software, and targets embedded training, digital mapping, and vehicle display applications. The MAGIC1 is the first of several planned system-level 3U VPX platforms from the company, each designed to serve specific functional needs.

The processor is based on the SBC340 and GRA110 3U VPX cards. The 2.0 GHz Intel Core Duo-processor CPU with its 945GM Northbridge chipset is connected to an NVIDIA G73 GPU via 16-lane PCI Express, giving maximum bandwidth between CPU and GPU. With dual channel video output capability, the MAGIC1 is capable of driving two independent displays. The system also supports up to 64 GBytes of solid-state SATA disk storage.
