The MAG2A AVIO is a high-performance Mission Computer with 3G-SDI graphics & video capture capabilities, and MIL-STD-1553 and ARINC 429 avionic interfaces.
At the heart of the unit there is a Quad Core Intel® Xeon® E3-1505M v6 processor, with a 16GB DDR4 and a 64GB Flash memory. The MAG2A AVIO is powered by a Nvidia Pascal Quadro P2000 dedicated video processor with a 4GB GDDR5 memory, and a rich video I/O selection including 2x 3G-SDI outputs, 2x 3G-SDI inputs and 2x VGA independent outputs. One VGA output channel from the graphic processor is also buffered to drive two identical sets of video signals. Additionally, a DVI-D single link is brought out from the processor. The graphic processor board is connected to the SBC via PCI Express™. The connection allows video inputs to be transferred into the system memory for manipulation and/or to be recorded into a local SATA SSD supporting a Secure Erase hardware. The MAG2A AVIO Mission Computer includes a number of dedicated avionic interfaces available: dual-channel dual redundant MIL-STD-1553B and 4x TX + 8x RX ARINC 429 serial channels. Furthermore, a large number of I/O such as 3x Gigabit Ethernet ports, 2x USB 2.0 ports, 1x USB 3.0 port, 4x serial COM (RS232/RS422/RS485) and up to 4 configurable digital I/O are also available. The MAG2A AVIO can host a further internal 2.5” Serial-ATA III SSD with the capability of triggering a hardware Secure Erase signal.
MAG series Mission Computers employ conduction cooled cards inside a sealed chassis, using baseplate cooling for heat dissipation. The MAG2A AVIO is compliant to MIL-STD-810/MIL-STD-461 specifications and RTCA/DO-160G.
