Abaco Systems’ FMC422 Dual Camera Link FMC (FPGA mezzanine card) is VITA 57.1 FMC compliant. It is designed for demanding, mission critical video processing applications that require high performance capture or output together with FPGA processing. The FMC422 is ideally suited for high bandwidth deployments such as degraded visual environments, active protection systems and autonomous vehicles.

The device provides the optimum solution for new systems as well as a straightforward technology refresh/performance upgrade for existing systems. By taking advantage of the device, users can also benefit from the latest FPGA boards from the company such as the VP880, a 3U VPX FPGA board featuring a Xilinx Ultrascale FPGA and Zynq Ultrascale+ MPSoC as well as their extensive range of FPGA carrier cards.

“With the FMC422, customers can substantially minimize the time, cost and risk of developing mission ready systems for low latency video applications,” said Pierrick Vulliez, vice president, Advanced RF and DSP at Abaco Systems. “Our complete single source solution significantly reduces integration risk, while the provision of a comprehensive support package lessens development effort, decreasing cost and time-to-deployment.”

By providing modular solutions that leverage proven interfaces, the company enables customers to refresh their legacy systems rather than having to completely re-architect them.

“Camera Link has been on the market for a long time, and its low latency and high bandwidth characteristics make it a dependable option for many video processing applications,” continued Vulliez. “However, monolithic video processing boards with Camera Link inputs can make it challenging to upgrade to the latest technology. Transitioning to the FMC422 and an FPGA board can enable tech insertion today, as well as provide a simpler path to future FMC module upgrades. This modular approach can also significantly mitigate the impact of obsolescence.”
