Camera Link frame grabber with FPGA-based image processing capabilities and Matrox FPGA Development Kit provide efficient solution for demanding machine vision applications
MONTREAL – Nov. 3, 2014 — Matrox Imaging today announced the Matrox RadientPro CL vision processor and the associated Matrox FPGA Development Kit (FDK) that let developers of machine vision applications harness the high-speed image acquisition power of Camera Link® cameras along with the high-performance image processing capabilities of an Altera® Stratix® V FPGA.
Matrox RadientPro CL is a half-length PCIe® 2.0 x8 frame grabber card that acquires from all Camera Link 2.0 sources including the Full/80-bit configurations at up to 85 MHz. It hosts an Altera Stratix V FPGA that can be efficiently configured using the new Matrox FDK.
Matrox FDK provides a component library and tools to facilitate the development of custom FPGA configurations for the Matrox RadientPro family of vision processor boards. Matrox FDK is used in combination with Impulse CoDeveloper™ and Altera Quartus® II to create FPGA configurations that offload and even accelerate image processing functions from the vision processor board’s host system.
