Gidel’s CoaXPress 2.0 (CXP-12/6) grabber and image processing family offers a number of options to accommodate diverse application needs, from plug-and-play high-performance frame grabbers to a full custom system solution comprising user-tailored acquisition path, on-FPGA image processing, real-time compression and more.
Gidel offers a number of CoaXPress frame grabber families enabling a variety of high-end acquisition and image processing capabilities. The families include: HawkEye-CXP, Proc10A-CXP, and Proc10S-CXP. The CXP families are designed for ultra-high bandwidth combining up to 8x CXP-12/6 links for up to 10 GB/s, PCIe Gen. 3 x8 host interface, huge image buffers of 32 GB and beyond, real-time compression, and ability to offload Regions Of Interest (ROI) for additional bandwidth utilization. The Gidel grabbers enable the use of eight 500+ MPixels/s Gidel Lossless and JPEG encoders – twice the pixel frequency of any other available solution.
Gidel’s boards, based on Intel Arria 10 and Stratix 10 FPGAs, deliver tremendous processing capacity fortified with abundant memory resources enabling to implement real-time image processing and user algorithms.
The boards are supported by the Gidel ProcVision Kit, 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.
