Matrox RadientPro CL

Full Featured Camera Link Vision Processor

The Matrox RadientPro CL is a vision processor board capable of handling the highest image acquisition rates supported by the Camera Link interface standard, specifically the Full and 80-bit modes (single-Full model). The Matrox RadientPro CL also makes available a FPGA device capable of offloading the host system from having to deal with repetitive compute-intensive image processing algorithms that consume substantial host system bandwidth. This FPGA device can be tailored for specific algorithms either by Matrox or by using the optional Matrox FPGA Development Kit (FDK).

Offload and accelerate repetitive tasks from the host CPU

As image size continues to grow, frame rate steadily increases, and applications are expected to do more, the demands on the host system keep rising. The Matrox RadientPro CL can lessen the pressure by offloading repetitive compute-intensive image processing operations using the on-board Altera Stratix V FPGA, freeing valuable processing resources for the rest of the application and even accelerating the application. Candidate operations include spatial and temporal filtering, gain and offset correction, dead pixel correction, optical and perspective distortion correction, Bayer color interpolation, color space conversions, and frequency domain transformations. The operations performed on-board are controlled through the Matrox Imaging Library (MIL) application development software. Through MIL, a FPGA configuration can be rearranged to perform a required sequence of operations without having to necessarily generate a new FPGA configuration. When the need arises, Matrox’s FPGA design services can be employed to generate an application-specific FPGA configuration. Users can also use the Matrox FDK to create custom FPGA configurations.

Versatile Camera Link Interface

For low-latency and deterministic acquisition, Camera Link provides a scalable and proven solution for vision applications. From cost-sensitive, low data rate applications, to mainstream applications including color, and right up to maximum bandwidth applications, Camera Link is an excellent fit.

The use of the mini Camera Link connector (HDR) on the RadientPro CL facilitates higher density multi-camera system designs by enabling two Base or one Full mode Camera Link interface with triggering and general purpose I/O in a single slot The Matrox RadientPro CL (single-Full model) supports the latest area and line scan cameras up to the Camera Link Full and 80-bit modes at 85MHz. When interfaced to PoCL enabled cameras, overall cabling complexity is reduced by eliminating the need for bulky and costly external camera power supplies.

High-Performance Host Interface

An PCIe® 2.0 x8 host interface provides the throughput necessary to ensure the continuous flow of pixels from the Matrox RadientPro CL to host memory. With a peak bandwidth of up to 4 GB/s, the Matrox RadientPro CL’s host interface prevents pixels from inadvertently being discarded while the point-to-point connectivity of PCIe stops other add-in devices from taking away valuable bandwidth between the frame grabber and the host PC.
