Control multiple high-resolution displays through Intel technology

Published : 04/02/2024 10:00:00

High-resolution industrial displays are increasingly common in a variety of applications, from machine control to data visualization, simulation and scenario analysis. Managing multiple displays can be a complex and burdensome task, which is why there are specially developed solutions that can simplify control of multiple displays.

13th generation Intel® Core™ technology was developed to optimize the performance of high-resolution displays, reducing video noise and improving image clarity. Images.

GENE-RAP6 is among the most interesting solutions in this field, for a new era in integrated computing.

Motherboard for managing multiple high-resolution displays

Available with Intel® Core™ i7, i5, i3 CPUs and Intel® U series processors, GENE-RAP6 takes advantage of the high-performance hybrid architecture of the 13th generation platform, which offers up to 6 high-performance cores, 8 efficient cores and 20 thread cores with targeted workload management through integrated Intel® Thread Director technology. Additionally, the board contains flexible system memory options, supporting up to 64GB of dual-channel DDR5 at 4800MHz via two SODIMM slots.

The first noteworthy feature of the GENE-RAP6 board is the variety of display interfaces, which include physical HDMI 2.1 and DP 1.4 ports, both with 8K resolution at 60 Hz, along with internal connectors for LVDS and optional eDP 1.4 providing resolutions of 1920 x 1080 and 4K respectively. In particular, the card's HDMI port can be used to drive two 4K displays at 120 Hz, allowing support for four simultaneous 4K displays. This result is guaranteed by the presence of the Intel® Iris® Xe graphics card, specific for use in healthcare imaging applications.

Technical characteristics for controlling 4k displays

The GENE-RAP6 PC Card hosts external I/O consisting of 2.5 GbE and 1 GbE LAN ports, along with four USB 3.2 Gen 2 ports (Type A x 3, Type C x 1 ), as well as four internal COM headers for RS-232/422/485, as well as GPIO and SMBus. With such a combination of speed and flexibility in connectivity, it's easy to see how the GENE-RAP6 board layout lends itself to human-machine interfaces and Panel PC solutions.

This card features multiple storage options that can be used to suit the needs of different applications, including a standard SATA drive, an M-Key M.2 2280 for NVMe, and an FPC connector that supports four PCIe 4.0 lanes. Functional expansion is also available, with 5G, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth modules supported via an M.2 3052/3042/2242 B-Key and an M.2 2230 E-Key.

These expansion options, combined with the Ethernet ports and COM, SMBus, and GPIO connectors, provide the GENE-RAP6 card with the capacity necessary to guarantee optimal connectivity for control systems process, data analysis, and virtualized monitoring within industrial automation applications. It is also worth mentioning the TPM 2.0 option for secure management of sensitive data and information.
