4DSP has introduced the FM577 FPGA platform aimed at the next generation of vision systems. The PMC is based on dual Altera Cyclone III FPGA device architecture, which maximises performance while keeping costs low.

The FM577 features the highest density Cyclone III FPGA EP3C120 for data acquisition and processing as well as the middle range EP3C40 for communication interfaces. Both FPGA devices offer a total of 160K logic elements; 400 plus 18-bit embedded multipliers at 260MHz and up to 5Mb of on-chip SRAM. With up to 4Gb of DDR2 SDRAM available on board, the FM577 is more than capable of meeting the needs of demanding image processing applications.

The FM577 is suitable for OEMs that wish to integrate Camera Link frame-grabbing, high-performance imaging processing, and real time JPEG2000 compression in a small form factor and at low cost.

The FM57 is supplied with a 'Board Support Package' that aids developers with application design.
