Proc10A-CXP-6 frame grabber

High-Bandwidth CoaXPress Grabbing and Image Processing

  • Grabbing from 8x CXP-6 links
  • Up to 8 CoaXPress cameras
  • Supports CoaXPress 1.1
  • Acquisition bandwidth of up to 5 GB/s
  • Huge frame buffers (up to 32 GB)
  • Host interface: PCIe Gen. 3 x8

The Proc10A CXP-6 frame 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.

The Proc10A_CXP-6 is designed for ultra-high bandwidth combining 8x CXP-6 links for up to 10 GB/s, PCIe Gen. 3 x8 host interface, huge image buffers of up to 32 GB, real-time compression and ability to offload Regions Of Interest (ROI) for additional bandwidth utilization. The Proc10A_CXP-12 enables the use of eight 1.8+ GPixels/s Gidel Lossless, JPEG, and Quality+ encoders – more than twice the pixel frequency of any other available solution.

The Proc10A_CXP-6, based on Intel Arria 10 FPGAs, delivers tremendous processing capacity fortified with abundant memory resources enabling to implement real-time image processing and user algorithms.

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
  1. Enables using many synchronized cameras and/or to grab compressed images/videos.
  2. All the cameras' data, including from multiple boards, is organized in a single buffer.
  3. Each camera can have different resolution, and pixel format, and may be changed on the fly.
  4. 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.
  • Option for grabbing ROIs.
  • Optimized for line scan cameras.
  • ProcFG may not be used for compressed data.
  • FPGA Option
    Open FPGA | Closed FPGA
    FPGA Type
    Arria 10 270 | Arria 10 660 | Arria 10 1150


    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.
