powerBridge: 2U 19” system allows signal processing of 48 GigE-vision cameras

powerBridge Computer Vision systems provide highly scalable machine vision platforms with 2, 4, 6, or 12 slots. They can be equipped with CPU modules with 2-port 10GbE interfaces, as well as 4- or 8-port GigEVision interfaces based on FPGAs. The compact design allows a significant increase in performance and cost reduction compared to conventional PC solutions, and provides parallel image and signal processing in a computer system.

The vision systems are specially designed for industrial production monitoring and quality assurance based on the MicroTCA standard. They can be fitted individually and divided into one to six root complexes. Optionally, 1/10 GigE Vision or Cameralink interfaces can be used. A/D signal processing, image acquisition and processing, and sensor data processing can be performed in a system. Images can be pre-processed, synchronised, and then be flexibly distributed. For time synchronisation down to the picosecond range, dedicated trigger signals can be integrated. powerBridge Computer Vision systems are compatible with popular high-level machine vision software solutions.

For example, up to 48 GigE Vision cameras can be connected in a 2U 19” MicroTCA system with six slots. CPU modules with up to 8-core XEON processors and up to 64 GB RAM can be used. The GigE-Vision interfaces, with Kintex or Zynq Ultrascale with integrated 4-core ARM processor and preconfigured IP cores, have been implemented as FMC/AMC board combinations. PoE interfaces reduce the number of cables required. The number of GigE Vision cameras can be extended almost indefinitely by adding more systems.

Depending on the available time and cost frame, the existing know-how, or the complexity of the application, we offer support for three different levels of development:

  • Block-level design with visual applets for image processing for those with limited experience,
  • C/C++ Code combined with FPGA high-level language design and ready image and video processing libraries,
  • Linux BSP with an AXI interface and development in VHDL or Verilog for FPGA experts using the FPGA image and video processing libraries, e.g. Xilinx Reinvision.

For applications in harsh environmental conditions, we supply complete image processing systems based on GigE Vision FMCs in conjunction with FPGA-based VPX and Open VPX boards. These are available with air cooling or as closed, conduction-cooled units. Here, too, the image processing software Visual Applets can be used.
