Acromag PMC FPGA Boards Excel at Image Processing
Acromag has engaged in a number of image processing applications based upon implementations of Camera Link running on a Virtex-5 FPGA module. In several of these instances, LVDS signals are used to collect the image data through front and/or rear I/O connections on the PMC FPGA module. Other applications use a custom interface developed for selected imaging devices to capture data through the PMC module’s front and rear I/O interfaces. To select the appropriate FPGA module for image processing applications engineers must consider a number of pertinent criteria.
Finding an appropriate Commercial-Off-The-Shelf (COTS) FPGA module for image processing depends on a number of key factors: I/O interface, frame speed, frame size, on-board processing requirements, and host communication speed/volume. The Xilinx Virtex-5 FPGA devices found on Acromag’s latest COTS PMC Modules offer blazing 550MHz processing speed and a variety of high-performance memory options that are well-suited to image processing functions.
