In machine vision components, especially cameras, the standard GigE Vision has almost established. This standard specifies an udp based messaging protocol to transfer data, messages and events. This could be the image data of a camera that are sent to a PC and command or configuration data that are sent to a camera device.
Sensor to Image offers a set of FPGA IP cores to fasten up design of GigE Vision compliant machine vision devices, e.g. cameras , but also receiving components like GigE framegrabbers.
At the moment the Xilinx FPGA families Spartan3x, Virtex4 and Virtex5 are supported. Other vendors are supported on request.
The design is prepared for 10 Gigabit and will support it as cost effective components are available.
To get an easy access to this design solution, evaluation-kits for sending and receiving applications are available.
