RoHS version of Matrox Controllers for Air Traffic Control [ATC] now available

Montreal, Canada, September 8th, 2006—Matrox Graphics, Inc., the leading manufacturer of graphics solutions for professionals, today announced that RoHS versions of all graphics controllers for air traffic control are now available. The RoHS directive restricts the sale of electrical and electronic equipment containing lead, mercury, cadmium, hexavalent chromium, PBB, and PBDE. The most commonly used of these restricted substances is lead which is used in the soldering of many printed-circuit boards.

Matrox was dedicated to meeting the requirements of this directive and is proud to announce that all skus have been transitioned to RoHS. This involved the replacing of certain components and manufacturing processes to eliminate or reduce the use of restricted substances.

Unless otherwise indicated, corresponding products transitioned to RoHS are functionally equivalent to the originally manufactured products. Matrox has taken care to maintain the specifications of RoHS transitioned products. To simplify the transition for our customers, we simply added an "F" (as in "Free of hazardous substances") at the end of the part numbers of RoHS-compliant products.

About Matrox ATC Controllers

Matrox ATC display controllers offer support for all available 2k x 2k displays as well as the 30 Dual-Link LCD display with a resolution of 2560x1600. Adaptable to both legacy and modern ATC platforms, Matrox ATC display controllers can drive both analog and digital displays, facilitating platform transitions in mission-critical environments. Two versions are available: PCI and PCIe. Moreover, Matrox's ability to offer long product life-cycles and extended product support ensures future-proofing of investment in both software and hardware.

Matrox's new RG series offers the same functionality and long-term support as the Matrox ATC controllers, but with the ability to keep the workstation remote (up to 250 meters) from the operating position. This allows you to reduce noise and space as well as increase security in the controller working positions while facilitating maintenance functions by having all the workstations gathered in the secure computer room.
