Designers wanting a CoaXPress acquisition platform for real-time video at high speeds can consider the PFC: Platform for CoaXPress acquisition, an FPGA-based platform that enables real-time processing of CoaXpress channels, from Techway.

Designers wanting a CoaXPress acquisition platform for real-time video at high speeds can consider the PFC: Platform for CoaXPress acquisition, an FPGA-based platform that enables real-time processing of CoaXpress channels, from Techway. CoaXPress is a new transport protocol for high-speed video streaming that uses coaxial cables, up to 100 meters. The Techway product is an FMC CoaXPress interface card with a Kintex-7 FPGA card.

The platform handles as many as four CoaXPress links running at 6.25 Gbps, with each link able to be either host or device (configuration-specific). The PFC sports six opto-isolated inputs and six opto-isolated outputs and features five DIN 1.0/2.3 connectors available from the front panel.

Designers of vision solutions for defense, aerospace, and robotics applications can put image processing on the FPGA using the platform's software development kit, using standard FPGA development tools from Xilinx.

The platform tests at 1,600 Mb/s for DDR3/800 Mb/s for RLDRAM2, operates over the industrial range of temperatures (-40 °C to 70 °C), is PCIe Gen 2-compliant, and supports Power over CoaXPress (PoCXP).
