Innovative edge computer combines high-bandwidth camera interfaces and frame grabbing technology with NVIDIA Jetson system-on-modules and AI capabilities.
Gidel, an Israel-based tech company, has been honored with a silver award at the Vision Systems Design Innovation Awards ceremony held at the Automate show in Detroit, MI on May 22, 2023. The jury recognized Gidel’s FantoVision edge computer for its innovative combination of 10GigE, CXP, and Camera Link frame grabbers with NVIDIA Jetson Xavier / Orin NX™ 16GB system on module.
Every year, the Vision Systems Design Innovators Award honors the most pioneering innovations in the vision industry. The jury consists of esteemed experts from vision system integrator and end-user companies. Linda Wilson, Editor in Chief of Vision System Design magazine said: “We would like to congratulate Gidel for their score in the 2023 Innovators Award program. The team should be very proud”.
“It is a great honor for us to be a finalist in this highly competitive award”, said Reuven Weintraub, founder and CTO of Gidel. “This proves that our approach to allow high-speed, high-resolution imaging in a compact edge computer fills a gap in the market. FantoVision provides the best of both worlds: Gidel’s high-bandwidth image acquisition with advanced FPGA processing capabilities, and NVIDIA embedded computing platforms for video processing and AI”.
FantoVision: Ready-to-use Computer for Vision on the Edge
Gidel’s FantoVision edge computers have been specially designed to make NVIDIA Jetson modules easily accessible to high-end imaging and vision system developers. They combine NVIDIA Jetson processors with high-bandwidth camera interfaces and Gidel’s acclaimed FPGA-based frame grabbing and acceleration technology. The result is a ready-to-use, compact, low-power industrial computer that fulfills the highest image acquisition standards.
With Gidel’s high-bandwidth camera interfaces, including 10GigE, CoaXPress 12, and Camera Link, FantoVision computers can capture and process images at up to 40 gigabits per second for high-resolution, high-speed, low-latency, or multi-camera applications.
