The Gidel HawkEye-CL frame grabber family are Camera Link Rev. 2.0 compliant supporting all 80-bit Camera Link modes. The HawkEye-CL family offers a number of options to accommodate diverse application needs, from plug-and-play high- performance frame grabbers to a full system solution that includes acquisition, open-FPGA
image processing, and a flexible custom camera interface.
The HawkEye-CL family is designed for high bandwidth combining up to 25 Gb/s acquisition rate, PCIe Gen. 3 x8 host interface, image buffers of up to 16 GB, real-time compression and ability to offload Regions Of Interest (ROI) for additional bandwidth utilization. The HawkEye family enables the use of 500+ MPixels/s Gidel Lossless and JPEG encoders – twice the pixel frequency of any other available solution.
The HawkEye is supported by Gidel’s ProcVision Developer’s Suite, which allows users to tailor their Vision flows in an intuitive and simple manner by customizing both the software and the FPGA design code for different frame grabbing flavors. The kit includes the ProcFG and InfiniVision GUIs, APIs and supporting libraries. The Gidel Proc Dev Kit enables automatic generation of Application Support Packages (ASPs), and includes Gidel’s CamSim (camera simulator) as well as tools for debugging and verifying FPGA ISP IPs.
