Base Boards

FPGA-based core of the proFRAME grabber system

The core of the proFRAME modular frame grabber system is the base board, a plug-in card with a powerful FPGA for real-time data processing and precise time stamping featuring slots for proFRAME camera adapters for connection of up to 8 cameras. Depending on the hardware generation and product variant, different adapters are supported.

The following types of proFRAME 3.0 Base Boards are available:

proFRAME Base Board 3.0 CompactPCI Serial

Art. No. 500911

The third generation of proFRAME base boards made its debut in CompactPCI Serial (CPCI-S.0) form, offering four times the data rates of its predecessor to support state-of-the-art automotive cameras.

The Base Board is built around a Xilinx Zynq UltraScale+ ZU4CG MPSoC, enabling increased data transfer rates of up to 40 Gbit/s for each of its new-type camera adapter interfaces.

The corresponding camAD3 adapter modules take advantage of this, offering up to four camera inputs or outputs on a single adapter. proFRAME 3.0 adapters using GMSL2, GMSL3, FPD-Link III and FPD-Link IV (de)serializers are available or currently in development.

  • 2× camAD3 camera adapter interfaces, each max. 40 Gbit/s video data interface
    • 4× CSI-2 interfaces 4 lanes each up to 2.5 Gbit/s.
      Total 40 Gbit/s or
      23× LVDS data lanes each up to 1.6 Gbit/s.
      Total 36.8 Gbit/s
    • 4× I2C interface to serializer and deserializer chips
    • 1× I2C interface to internal devices
      (e.g., EEPROM, interface FPGAs, PoC pot, …)
    • 1× SPI interface to serializer and deserializer chips
    • 5 to 24V supply for Power over Coax (PoC)
    • FSYNC trigger, interrupt, reference clock and other
      GPIO signals
  • PCIe x8 Gen3 interface (64 Gbit/s) to CompactPCI Serial backplane
  • Xilinx Zynq UltraScale+ ZU4CG MPSoC (FBVB900)
  • 2 GB DDR4 of PS (processing system) memory, up to 150 Gbit/s
  • CompactPCI Serial (CPCI-S.0) 3U form factor
  • Temperature range: −20 to +85 °C
