Proc10A 40/60 GigE Frame Grabber / Smart NIC

6 x 10 GigE Vision Grabbing and Real-Time Processing

  • Acquisition from 4 or 6 x 10 GigE Vision cameras
  • Zero frame loss with almost zero CPU utilization
  • Architecture optimized for Multi-Camera acquisition
  • Form factor: PCIe half length
  • Low power (8-30W)

The Gidel Proc10A-40/60GigE smart NIC grabber family is ideal for high bandwidth applications, including multi-cameras and ultra-high bandwidth camera applications.  Its high acquisition and processing capabilities ensures zero frame loss while offloading the CPU for key processing tasks.  The board can support up to 6 x 10 GigE Vision cameras that connect directly to the board without a need for a switch.  Using a switch, it is possible to grab from tens of cameras, e.g., 60 x 1 GigE.   The board’s innovative InfiniVision architecture is optimized for multi-camera acquisition.  All cameras’ data transferred synchronously to single buffer ready for immediate post processing.

The Proc10A-GigE family offers a number of options to accommodate diverse application needs, from a plug-and-play high-performance frame grabber to a fully customized system solution comprising acquisition, FPGA image processing, real-time image compression, multi-camera synchronization and complex I/O system control.

The Proc10A-GigE has an acquisition bandwidth of up to 60 Gb/s via a QSFP+ and two SFP+ connectors.

Target applications:

  • Machine Vision and Imaging
  • Volumetric video capture
  • Smart agriculture systems
  • Surveillance
  • High Performance Acquisition Systems

Options:
Grabber architecture type
The Gidel frame grabber boards can operate in one of two unique frame grabber architectures, ProcFG or InfiniVision, by reprogramming the firmware. Grabber option #1: InfiniVision Enables using many synchronized cameras and/or to grab compressed images/videos. All the cameras' data, including from multiple boards, is organized in a single buffer. Each camera can have different resolution, and pixel format, and may be changed on the fly. The frame grabber can have one or more instances of InfiniVision, and all cameras of the same InfiniVision instance must be synchronized. Grabber option #2: ProcFG Each camera has a dedicated ProcFG instance. Frame size and pixel format must be fixed. Optimized for line scan cameras Option for grabbing ROIs. ProcFG may not be used for compressed data.
FPGA options
Open FPGA | Closed FPGA
FPGA Type
Arria 10 270 | Arria 10 660 | Arria 10 1150

SDK:

The ProcFG and InfiniVision are each supported by its unique GUI and API suite for developing the user application.  For description of ProcFG and InfiniVision, refer to the Options tab.

FPGA Programming Suite:

The Gidel grabber boards are supported by the ProcVision Suite enabling tailoring, debugging, and verification of the FPGA image processing and data flow.

Customization can be based on the InfiniVision or ProcFG flow, and can include multi-instances for supporting unique multi-camera topologies, as well as, image processing and compression.
