VCP-2867 3U OpenVPX Video and Graphics Board with BuiltSAFE

Xilinx Kintex UltraScale FPGA, up to 18x18 video I/O including ARINC 818-2, and DO-254 artifacts

Stream 1080p60 3G-HD and 4K video in flight

The VCP-2867 3U OpenVPX VITA 46-compliant single-slot module features a Xilinx Kintex® UltraScale™ FPGA, 8x8 video I/O that supports ARINC 818-2, extendable 18x18 video I/O, fast 1 Gbit QDR3 memory and low-latency video switching to perform sensor pre-processing, stream high-resolution video and feed data to multiple processing boards.

VCP-2867’s FPGA can be optionally partitioned to support applications such as sensor fusion, video streaming and AI filtering, and the board can support multiple applications from a single 3U subsystem. 


Lower Malfunction Risk and Save Resources

Mercury’s proven 3U avionics modules accelerate safety-critical applications like AI machine vision and augmented reality, expedite the certification process, save aircraft resources and speed subsystem time to market.
