New Matrox Imaging Rapixo CXP Series Frame Grabbers

Multi-link frame grabbers support the highest speeds in CoaXPress 2.0 for high-end machine vision applications

Matrox® Imaging is pleased to announce Matrox Rapixo CXP, a new series of multi-link CoaXPress® 2.0 frame grabbers. Leveraging the latest version of CoaXPress, the Rapixo CXP boards support data rates of up to four times 12.5 Gbps, with a PCIe x8 host computer interface to match, as required in high-speed, high-resolution machine vision applications. Rapixo CXP features up to four connections, and further simplifies integration with support for Power-over-CoaXPress (PoCXP) that combines power, command, and data interfaces onto one cable. Matrox Rapixo CXP boards also offer custom onboard image processing using their field-programmable gate array device (FPGA) and can also host the license for Matrox Imaging software, avoiding the need for a separate hardware key.

New Abaco Systems AXIS ImageFlex 2.0

Image processing software to speed development of autonomous vehicles introduced by Abaco

Abaco Systems in Huntsville, Ala., is introducing release 2.0 of its flexible ImageFlex image processing.

and visualization software toolkit, which provides an easy-to-use API framework to considerably speed and simplify the development, optimization and maintenance of advanced artificial intelligence (AI) applications -- especially those targeted at autonomous vehicles.

ImageFlex enables developers of image and video processing and visualization applications on graphics processing units (GPUs) to be substantially more productive by hiding the complexity of the underlying software layers, while maintaining high performance.

By providing an OpenGL abstraction layer it can reduce the number of lines of code required by a factor of five, radically reducing the effort and time needed in order to create, test and maintain the application. This means faster time-to-market as well as lower development cost.

ImageFlex is complementary to Abaco's NVIDIA GPU-based GVC1000 and GVC2000 hardware platforms, which use the NVIDIA Jetson supercomputer on a module for AI computing at the edge. This allows the creation of complete solutions for Degraded Visual Environment (DVE), 360-degree situational awareness, helmet mount sight processing, target identification and tracking and other EO/IR processing applications. It is portable across a range of graphics processing architectures and operating systems, and is potentially safety certifiable.

The ImageFlex API provides functions for a range of image processing operations from simple image transformations through to more complex lens distortion correction and image morphing.

It includes optimized, high quality image fusion, stabilization, tracking and distortion correction algorithms, as well as a comprehensive set of reference application examples that provide core software building blocks. ImageFlex also provides tools and reference examples demonstrating how to integrate with sensors and deploy artificial intelligence-based applications such as object detection and recognition.

New Abaco Systems VP430

FPGA embedded computing for electronic warfare (EW) and radar signal processing introduced by Abaco

Abaco Systems in Huntsville, Ala., is introducing the VP430 direct RF processing embedded computing system with the Xilinx ZU27DR RF system-on-chip (RFSoC) technology for advanced electronic warfare (EW) applications including multiple input/output (MIMO), beamforming, sensor processing, and radar signal processing.

The dense analog field-programmable gate array (FPGA) digital signal processing (DSP) board has eight A/D converter and D/A converter synchronized channels, and can synchronize several boards.

When combined with Abaco's 3U VPX processing boards, the VP430 enables systems designers to build systems from high performance, interoperable commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) components.

The VP430 can enable the use of fewer boards and much less power while delivering increased processing throughput, company officials say. It occupies one-fourth of the slots that earlier-generation solutions would require.

The VP430 can be built with a FireFly 8-channel VITA 66.4 fiber optic interface for transfers faster than 12 gigabytes per second for applications in which the throughput of the native VPX PCI Express Gen3 data plane is inadequate or when a remote client requires streaming data.

The VP430 enables direct RF sampling in the digital domain, and the simplified integration with RF sampling devices removes the complexity of JESD204B high-speed serial interfaces.

The Xilinx RFSoC brings a combination of FPGA processing, a multi-processor-embedded ARM Cortex-A53 application processing unit (APU), an ARM real-time processing unit (RPU), and eight input analog-to-digital converter and eight digital-to-analog converter channels.

Additionally, the Zynq Ultrascale+ architecture integrates with features to enable high security IP protection. The RFSoC brings extreme analog bandwidth with a sustained throughput of 6 gigasamples per second per channel and more than 12 gigabytes per second per channel digital offload capability.
