Gidel’s FantoVision family is a pioneering compact computer enabling image acquisition and processing from up to 4 x CoaXPress 2.1/10GigE Vision, or 2 x 10GigE Vision and 80-bit/Dual-Base Camera Link cameras. The FantoVision’s innovative architecture merges high-end image acquisition with real-time image processing and/or compression using Nvidia Jetson™ embedded computer with optional pre-processing/compression on Intel Arria 10™ FPGA.
The FantoVision is also distinct in its open architecture enabling embedded AI/image processing on GPU and FPGA. Software engineers can program their algorithms on GPU using CUDA C/C++ and NVIDIA’s libraries. In addition, developing and deploying optional pre-processing block on FPGA is simple and fast using Gidel’s novel ProcVision™ Suite.
The FantoVision opens the way for new compact, cost-effective, scalable vision and imaging solutions for high-bandwidth, low-latency applications. Multi-FantoVision units can be interconnected to provide unique and scalable topologies. Using Gidel’s InfiniVision™ open frame grabber flow, 100+ sensors can be synchronized and processed simultaneously.
