altAMD annuncia che Rockwell Collins, società leader nelle comunicazioni innovative e dei sistemi avionici nei settori dell’industria aerospaziale e della difesa ha dotato la sua soluzione Pro Line Fusion™ del processore grafico embedded AMD Radeon™ E2400.

Grazie alle sue caratteristiche avanzate per il rendering 3D, AMD Radeon™ E2400 rappresenta la soluzione ideale per la realizzazione di modelli grafici realistici dell’ambiente esterno al velivolo, in modo da permettere ai piloti di individuare con maggiore facilità la pista o eventuali ostacoli in presenza di condizioni di scarsa visibilità e di disporre quindi delle informazioni essenziali per prendere le migliori decisioni in ogni fase del volo.


Di seguito la notizia in dettaglio:

SUNNYVALE, Calif. — March 26, 2012 — AMD (NYSE: AMD) today announced Rockwell Collins, a leader in innovative communications and avionics systems for the aerospace and defense industries, has selected the AMD Radeon™ E2400 embedded graphics processor for inclusion in its highly-intuitive, integrated flight deck solution, Pro Line Fusion™. Chosen for its advanced 3D graphics rendering capabilities, the AMD Radeon E2400 helps generate realistic graphical models of the external aircraft environment to help improve awareness of terrain, obstacles and runways in low visibility conditions. With this technology, pilots can now have key information at their fingertips, enabling them to make informed decisions during every phase of flight.


“The rapid and accurate visualization of data and access to information are essential for professionals in the aerospace and defense industries,” said Richard Jaenicke, director, Embedded Client Business, AMD. “The AMD Radeon E2400 was specifically designed to meet customers’ demand for high-quality graphics with a stable, long-lasting supply, making it ideal for system designers such as Rockwell Collins.”



Benefits of AMD Radeon E2400 for Avionics Systems:

  • High performance 3D graphics technology: delivers realistic, real-time terrain imagery to the 15.1” primary flight deck LCD displays 
  •  Advanced 3D graphics acceleration: support for OpenGL 2.0, Shader Model 4.0, anti-aliasing, anisotropic filtering and texture compression
  • Small footprint with on-chip 128MB of GDDR3: helps minimize system space requirements and simplifies system design
  • Sophisticated power management features: flexibility to adjust clock settings to help reduce power consumption as needed
