GigE Vision IP Core platform from Pleora now supports FPGAs from Xilinx and Altera
Pleora Technologies has expanded its GigE Vision IP Core platform to include support for FPGAs from both Xilinx and Altera.
Select customers are already working with the new iPORT NTx-GigE IP Core package running on Xilinx 7-Series FPGAs in imaging devices for medical, industrial, and defense applications, with broad availability scheduled for March 2016.
"Expanding our field-proven IP core package to now include support for both Xilinx and Altera meets growing demand from camera and system manufacturers for more flexible solutions that simplify video connectivity," said John Phillips, product management with Pleora. "With the iPORT NTx-GigE IP Core Package, manufacturers can easily integrate their custom logic with our imaging expertise to streamline the design of higher performance, lower cost solutions that address real-time video requirements across a breadth of markets."
Pleora’s IP core platform provides a design path to integrate logic with the iPORT NTx-GigE IP Core in a custom FPGA load. With it, designers can utilize a single FPGA to perform pixel correction, color space conversion, and other specialized analysis tasks as well as incorporating GigE Vision functionality. Integrating multiple functions into a single FPGA, according to Pleora, will result in electronics with reduced power consumption, heat generation, footprint, and component costs.
Additionally, the iPORT NTx-GigE IP Core Package is fully compatible with the Enclustra Mars AX3 Evaluation Kit to enable fast prototyping and design, in addition to Altera Cyclone V FPGAs. It also includes Pleora's encrypted IP core for a GigE Vision compliant video interface, Quartus II or Vivado project files, Qsys or IPI systems, a GigE media access controller, and device configuration scripts to facilitate the automation of the programming process during production.
