Video Acquisition Module

The Video Acquisition Module of the reference design simulates a camera with a test pattern generator. This module is delivered as VHDL source code, which has to be replaced by a sensor interface and pixel processing logic in the final camera design.

Reduced time to market

Machine vision camera suppliers reduce time to market with transport layer IP Cores, and rely on Sensor to Image to keep up with both technological and standards advancements.
To stream images from the camera to the host, several modern standards of vision transport layers exist. The most powerful ones (GigE Vision, USB3, CoaXPress, ...) may however appear complex and evolving. Compressing months of development work, Sensor to Image’s IP Cores enable machine vision companies to build FPGA-based products following these standards, delivering the highest possible performance in a small footprint while minimizing development time.

Working Reference Design

S2I’s Vision Standard IP Cores solutions are delivered as a working reference design along with FPGA IP cores. This minimizes development time and allows for top-notch performance at a small footprint, while leaving enough flexibility to customize the design. Sensor to Image cores are compact and leave enough space in the FPGA for your application.

FPGA Integrated CPU

An FPGA integrated CPU (MicroBlaze, NIOS, ARM, Risc V) is used for several non-time-critical control and configuration tasks with the CXP-Device/Host core. This software is written in C and can be easily extended by the customer.

Top Level Design

The first component of the IP Core is the Top Level Design. It is an interface between external hardware (imager, sensors, GigE Vision, USB3 Vision or CoaXPress PHY) and FPGA internal data processing. We deliver this module as VHDL source code that can be adapted to custom hardware.
