Linux support for Matrox Radient eCL
Matrox Imaging has introduced Linux support for Matrox Radient eCL, a high-performance Camera Link frame grabber with an Altera Stratix III/IV processing FPGA.
Linux system developers can now take advantage of the Matrox Radient eCL's high-bandwidth image capture – up to four Base or two Full mode Camera Link cameras on a single board – and high-throughput FPGA-based processing capabilities.
Matrox Radient eCL is the single-board solution for applications that require high-performing Camera Link cameras. The PCIe x8 card ensures that the data from the high-throughput 10-tap, 85MHz cameras is transferred to the host CPUs. Its half-length form factor ensures an excellent fit in compact systems.
The board also features an on-board real-time processing FPGA device that can be configured to offload and even accelerate the most compute intensive part of typical image processing applications without generating additional data traffic for the host computer.
Matrox Radient eCL supports 32- and 64-bit versions of Windows XP/Vista and Linux, and is programmed with the Matrox Imaging Library (MIL) or MIL-Lite development toolkits.
