Dual Input - Dual Output DP to DVI Adapter

Digital (DVI-D) or Analog (DVI-A)

The CVX-DVI is a peripheral slot card for CompactPCI® Classic systems. The board receives one ore two DisplayPort compliant video signals via front panel mDP (Mini DisplayPort) input receptacles, and converts these data to classic DVI output connectors, for legacy applications.
The DVI connectors are individually configurable as DVI-D (digital video output), or DVI-A (aka VGA analog graphics).

The video input signal of each mDP connector is routed to a high speed analog switch, as selectable data source for either a DP to DVI converter (DP++ to TMDS, 4 lanes up to 6Gbps), or DP to VGA adapter (DP++ to WUXGA, 2 lanes up to 2.7Gbps).
Both type of video outputs are wired to DVI-I front panel connectors. For VGA usage a suitable DVI-A to VGA adapter cable would be required.
