Velociraptor EVO / 2.2MP IR

Velociraptor EVO is a highly customizable and user-programmable FPGA-based high-speed smart camera: the ultimate FPGA camera with a very large Xilinx Spartan-6 FPGA and high-speed imaging sensor. It is based on GigaBee modules which incorporate dual DD3 memory and Gigabit Ethernet. It features the ultimate-performance System-on-Chip (SoC) technology combined with the latest turbocharged industrial CMOSIS imaging sensor.

Velociraptor EVO includes a fully customizable and user-programmable open-reference design for a high-speed FPGA-based camera and application development system. Its emphasis is on an open-hardware/software development model featuring high-frame rates, real-time image processing, ultra-large FPGA and modern graphical user interface support.

A suite of intermediate, versatile and large Xilinx Spartan-6LX150 FPGAs is used to develop algorithms and process data in real-time. Images are acquired by a CMOSIS sensor, CMV2000 (2048x1088 pixels, 2/3’’ size) or CMV4000 (2048x2048 pixels, 1’’ size). The Sensor is very fast and outputs up to 768 million pixels per second resulting in 333 FPS (CMV2000) and 178 FPS (CMV4000) at full frame. The on-board 2x128MB DDR3 memory with 2x1.6GB/s of bandwidth enables usage of complex buffered image processing. A unique UDP based Ethernet protocol, developed especially for this camera, is used for communication with a PC.

The camera is Ethernet powered (IEEE 802.3at PoE) with power consumption up to 10W. Velociraptor EVO cameras are suitable for demanding applications where extremely high-speed and high-frame rates are needed in combination with real-time image processing and adaptability to specific products or systems.

The Velociraptor EVO is targeted to Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) who are seeking components that can be adapted to specific products or systems. The Velociraptor EVO camera provides a flexible framework of core capabilities that will serve as a platform for multimodal functionality. The framework is expandable, scalable and flexible to accommodate new algorithms and can be interoperable with existing systems. In two words, it’s versatile and affordable, in all possible ways.
