Using the combination of a BitFlow frame grabber and an NVIDIA Jetson AGX Xavier kit, it is possible to have a very small form factor image processing system with either Camera Link or CoaXPress.
BitFlow has available a Linux AArch64 (64-bit ARM) SDK that enables seamless integration of BitFlow frame grabbers with the NVIDIA Jetson AGX Xavier Development Kit.
With the advent of the new machine vision standard CXP 2.0 where data rates are now up to 50 Gb/S, customers are looking to process more and more data and in shorter timeframes. For this, a GPU can typically perform these tasks much more effectively than a CPU. Even with slower data rates such as Camera Link’s (up to 850 MB/S) the ability to quickly process more complex algorithms is equally important.
The NVIDIA Jetson AGX Xavier is the first computer designed specifically for autonomous machines. It has six Engines onboard for accelerated sensors data processing and running autonomous machines software, and offers the performance and power efficiency for fully autonomous machines.
In the image below, the Claxon frame grabber is capable of DMAing directly into GPU Memory where the processors are performing a 2-D to 3-D transfom on 12 MP images in real time.
