S3 Graphics is a leading provider of innovative graphics visualization technologies for the embedded, consumer, and PC markets. As a quality supplier to the OEM and retail markets, S3 Graphics powers multimedia and 3D platforms to bring best-in-class energy efficiency, performance, and visual fidelity to the user. Our long-term commitment to customers is to bring reliability, quality, performance and state-of-the-art features to the forefront of graphical applications.
Presagis now officially provides a driver for the S3 Graphics 2300E GPU. Through the partnership, embedded graphics customers will have access to a new graphics processor and driver that are optimized for a variety of current safety-critical applications, including traditional cockpit displays, next generation menu-based displays and digital maps for cockpits.
In addition to the graphics driver, Presagis will be providing associated services for the new GPU. These services include delivering customized porting support, which is useful for customers assembling proprietary hardware systems with the 2300E. The GPU/driver solution can be leveraged for use in many different systems, but is particularly well-suited for safety-critical applications. Customers looking to develop avionics displays certifiable to DO-178B and DO-254 (standards mandated by the FAA for all new aviation software and hardware applications) require important engineering data for the GPU. As part of its commitment to the embedded market, S3 Graphics will provide Presagis and customers with the data required to meet DO-178B and DO-254 certification standards up through Design Assurance Level A.
“One of the most pressing challenges affecting the embedded market today is the discontinuation of parts and GPUs. Presagis has selected S3 Graphics as a partner because of its commitment to supplying parts long-term, which is key for customers who work in an industry where programs can span several decades,” said Robert Kopersiewich, Vice President and General Manager of Embedded Graphics at Presagis. “S3’s 2300E is also the ideal unit for customers looking to certify their safety-critical applications because it has a straightforward architecture and is backed by a team that will provide all the documentation required for certification.”

The S3 Graphics 2300E graphics processor (GPU) offers an ideal balance of low power (fanless) 3D graphics and HD video playback to embedded applications requiring multimedia capabilities in heat and power constrained environments. Partners can utilize the latest generation of graphics horsepower to future proof designs or upgrade existing platforms, with the aim of enhancing their product offerings. The 2300E provides exceptional value by giving partners peace of mind knowing that product longevity and sourcing issues do not impact production, along with a mix of performance, features and proven shipments in the embedded and PC markets. The 2300E is part of the S3 Graphics product line of leading edge embedded GPUs supporting the latest OpenGL™ and HD video standards.
“S3 Graphics is excited to join Presagis at the forefront of next generation avionics and safety-critical application development”, said Dr. Ken Weng, General Manager of S3 Graphics. “With deep expertise in providing certifiable solutions, Presagis can help S3 Graphics deliver its unique low-power GPU solutions to aviation and other safety-critical customers.”
