Video, Machine Vision and AI Inferences on the Edge
Gidel’s FantoVision 40™ is a pioneering compact computer enabling image acquisition and processing from 4 x CoaXPress 2.1 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.

Open Customizable Image Processing
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 AI libraries. In addition, developing and deploying optional pre-processing block on FPGA is simple and fast using Gidel’s novel ProcVision™ Suite.

Scalable Solution
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.

AI/Algorithm Development

The FantoVision 40 edge computer is supported by NVIDIA’s libraries enabling to develop algorithms/AI on the Jetson via CUDA C/C++.

ProcVision Developer’s Suite

The ProcVision Developer’s Suite provides a powerful set of tools for customizing the frame grabber acquisition path and for developing, testing and verifying the on-FPGA image processing block. The tools include means for developing both the image processing FPGA code and the software application driver. The ProcVision Suite includes:

  • CertifEye Toolchain: Enables instant debugging and validation of the FPGA image processing IP(s) and the ISP pipeline
  • InfiniVision: Frame grabber flow for multi cameras/sensors enabling real-time compression and synchronization of 100+ cameras
  • CamSim: Camera simulator for developing and testing imaging and vision applications
  • ProcDev Kit: Allows you to fully tailor your grabber’s Application Support Package (ASP) including integration with software
  • Utilities: Load new designs, scan FPGAs, etc.
