MVDK board As FPGA as standards get more complex over the years, we thought it would be good to have a complete kit to start a new application on standard machine vision interfaces. Based on the FPGA modules of ENCLUSTRA and starting with Cyclone5-SOC from INTEL-PSG here is the solution called MVDK: machine vision development kit. This kit can give this to you:

  • interface for CMOS and CCD sensors with parallel and serial interfaces at up to 1GBit/channel directly into PL of Cyclone5 SOC
  • HDMI output from PL for 1080p60 monitor interface
  • GEN<i>CAM compliant interfaces of: GEV, U3V and CXP
  • GigEVision = GEV at 1/5/10GBit, DEVICE and HOST from PS and 1GBit from PL
  • USB3Vision = U3V at 5GBit DEVICE with or without CYPPRESS FX3
  • CoaXPress = CXP at 6.25GBit, DEVICE and HOST from FPGA tranceiver
  • LINUX OS for ARM CPU with USB-OTG
  • RS232, some pins for basic FPGA and application debugging and Windows based GenAPI viewer software
  • available worldwide from Sensor to Image and it's distribution partners

Sensor to Image has done the hardware design on the base board and will do reference design for all GEN<i>CAM hardware interface on the kit, which are available after registration  for free download at Sensor to Image MVDK support website. Today these designs are ready:

  • GEV DEVICE with APTINA AR0134 in a 30min time limited version. This is the default application for MVDK ordered from Sensor to Imagw
  • U3V DEVICE with APTINA AR0134 in a 30min time limited version. This design is provided after MVDK production registration by download from Sensor to Image website
  • HALCON Embedded trial in a 30min time limited version. This design is provided after MVDK production registration by download from Sensor to Image website
  • ... more to come

Please understand that we give no support unless the kit is delivered to you and you get registered with a valid serial number for MVDK. We will include you in a dedicated mailing list for Sensor to Image internal use. With this mailing list we will offer centralized webcasts or training courses every quarter of the year, which are included in the standard delivery. If full core versions are needed, please get in contact with us to work on your individual support and delivery plan.
