The new multi-camera FMC modules help engineers develop custom video systems using Xilinx MPSoCs

By Gina Roos, editor-in-chief

Avnet’s Multi-Camera FMC Module, an UltraZed-compatible
device
, is designed to help engineers develop custom video systems using
Xilinx MPSoCs for embedded vision applications.

The
Multi-Camera FMC Module expands Avnet’s embedded vision support for video
analytics, video imaging, surveillance, and other vision-guided functionalities
with applications for a range of applications found in automotive, defense and
aerospace, embedded processing, and the internet of things (IoT). It supports
up to four high-definition camera modules using MAXIM Integrated Gigabit
Multimedia Serial Link (GMSL) technology.

The
module is available as a standalone component or within the Quad-Camera FMC
Bundle, which includes a cable assembly and four camera modules with GMSL
serialization. The Quad-Camera FMC Bundle is fully integrated to the Xilinx
reVISION stack, which also features development resources.

 

Features
include:

  • Low-Pin-Count (LPC) FMC Module
  • Quad-GMSL
    Deserializer from MAXIM Integrated (MAX9286)
  • Support for
    four ON Semiconductor 2.3-MPixel image sensors (AR0231AT)
  • High-Speed
    FAKRA Mini (HFM) connectors

The
Quad AR0231AT Camera FMC Bundle is designed for Xilinx Zynq-UltraScale+ FMC
carriers and the Avnet UltraZed
EV SOM and Carrier. The bundle features:

  • One
    AES-FMC-MULTICAM4-G FMC module
  • One
    Quad-HFM to 4x FAKRA Cable Assembly
  • Four camera
    modules, each composed of:
    – A
    MAX96705 Serializer Kit (MARS1-MAX96705-GEVK)
    – A
    AR0231AT Image Sensor Board (MARS1-AR0231AT7-GEVB)
  • Quick Start
    Card and downloadable documentation and reference designs

The Multi-Camera
FMC
 Module is priced at $299; the Quad AR0231AT Camera FMC
Bundle is $1,699. Both are available now.
