Matrox Imaging Releases New Camera Link Frame Grabbers With Support For FPGA Programming

Matrox Rapixo CL Pro builds upon established series to provide support for the highest performance Camera Link cameras and onboard image processing offload

MONTREAL, Quebec—22 June 2020—Today, Matrox® Imaging announces additions to the renowned Matrox Rapixo series of frame grabbers with the release of the Matrox Rapixo CL Pro, with support for the highest performance Camera Link® cameras on the market.

Matrox Rapixo CL Pro provides the most comprehensive features currently available in the industry. Each Pro board delivers onboard image processing offload to field-programmable gate array (FPGA) devices, high frame-rate image capture, support for extended cable lengths, and the reliable image acquisition trusted in all Matrox Imaging frame grabbers.

Confidently offloading image processing from host computer
Matrox Rapixo CL Pro models—along with other Pro models in the Matrox Rapixo series—make use of an FPGA device from the Xilinx Kintex™-7 family, directly integrating control, format, and stream logic onto the frame grabber itself. Paired with the Matrox FDK, a powerful development kit, the Pro models support development of custom FPGA configurations to relieve the host system of intensive image-processing functions.

Maximizing connectivity while minimizing set-up requirements
An enhanced iteration of the field-proven Matrox Radient eV series of Camera Link boards, Matrox Rapixo CL Pro capably handle image capture from an extensive range of devices, whether a single low data-rate Camera Link device to multiple maximum-bandwidth Camera Link cameras. Users can interface with up to four Base or two Full/80-bit mode Camera Link cameras at up to 85 MHz on a single board. With integrated Power-over-Camera Link (PoCL) and extended cable lengths support, Matrox Rapixo CL Pro boards simplify cabling requirements.

“Matrox Rapixo CL Pro expands the already extensive offerings of the Matrox Rapixo series,” says Mathieu Larouche, product manager, Matrox Imaging. “These boards—and their onboard image processing offload—ensure the effectiveness of the Camera Link standard for years to come. With support for both Camera Link and CoaXPress interfaces, the Matrox Rapixo series is the best option available for installations and applications.”

Availability
Matrox Rapixo CL Pro will be officially released in June 2020.

Overcoming Signal Integrity Challenges of 112G Connections on PCB

Sponsored by Cadence Design Systems

One big challenge with 112G SerDes is handling signal integrity (SI) issues. By the time the signal winds its way from the transmitter on one chip to packages, across traces on PCBs, through connectors or cables, and arrives at the receiver, the signal is very distorted, making it a challenge to recover the clock and data-bits of the information being transferred. Learn how to handle SI issues and ensure that data is faithfully transmitted with a very low bit error rate (BER).
