Rastergraf's FalconPMC is a display controller and video capture PMC (PCI Mezzanine Card) board. The card is designed for use under Windows XP-10 and Linux (using Rastergraf's SDL or XFree86) operating environments. It is also supported on VxWorks 5.5/5.6 (using SDL).

The FalconPMC features a Silicon Motion SM768 System On a Chip (SOC) graphics accelerator with 256 Mbytes of on-chip DDR3. This 128-bit 2D graphics engine supports compatible displays at up to full HD (1920x1080).

The FalconPMC features the Conexant Bt835 NTSC/PAL/S-Video and Analog Devices AD9882 High Speed RGB/DVI digitizers. STANAG 3350 A-C input signals can be captured through the AD9882. A loopback can connect Video Output to Input for self-testing.

Rastergraf’s user-configurable I/O Resource Matrix maximizes I/O flexibility, enabling most functions to be connected to either the front or rear panel. Please contact Rastergraf for more information.

FalconPMC Build Versions

The FalconPMC signals provided on its front panel or PMC Pn4 I/O connector are as follows.


VGA Ch 1

VGA Ch 2

DVI Ch 1

DVI Ch 2

Video/RGBHV In


* Front/rear access user selectable

Connector Usage

The FalconPMC can be built to support either 2 VGA connectors or one DVI connector plus an SDR 50 I/O connector. Note that the Falcon SDR 50 I/O connector is not the same as that used on the Topaz, which uses an MDR 20.

Although not a conduction cooled design, the FalconPMC is laid out in a Conduction Cooled PMC (CCPMC) compatible format with Primary and Secondary Thermal Interface area for easy use in all environments.

Pn4 (PMC) rear-panel I/O connector access is supported. Pn4 sgnals can be accessed via a standard PMC PIM (PMC I/O Module) connector.

Using a FalconPMC optional configuration, the on-board SM768's built-in ARM CPU can be used to provide Built-In Self Test (BIST) and real-time monitoring of most FalconPMC functions. Monitoring is implemented using I2C/SMbus, JTAG, voltage, and temperature. Reporting is done via LEDs and USB.

Rastergraf's support philosophy recognizes the lead-in and life-cycle requirements expected by the embedded computing market.


The FalconPIM (PMC I/O Module) is used with the FalconPMC.

The FalconPIM can be built to support either 2 VGA connectors or one DVI connector plus an SDR 50 connector.
