FMC-CL, Cameralink frame-grabber

FMC/CL is a Camera Link FMC (FPGA Mezzanine Module) that interfaces to quad BASE, MEDIUM, and dual FULL and Extended FULL Camera Link compatible cameras.
The FMC/CL has a variety of I/O capabilities – 2 x SATA connectors and 4 CL connectors that can also be utilized as a general-purpose I/O.
The table below shows the mode and the support provided by the hardware based on the FPGA card used.

 The Sundance DSP SE120, PXIe800, and PXIe700 boards using the Xilinx Kintex series can support FMC-CL. The IP core for capturing the frames from the camera(s) is included. An extension PC bracket and flex cables allow the use of two cameras in Full/Extended modes.

 

FMC-CL-2 supports 2 Cameralink cameras and includes an IP core in binary format for supporting the FMC-CL interface to the camera. The Source version is also available. Please contact the Sundance sales team for details.

FMC-CL-4 supports 4 Cameralink cameras and includes an FMC-CL, auxiliary card with PC bracket (offers two additional camera link connectors), 2 152660343 flex cables, standoff, and screws.

When order the PXIe systems, you may also need to order the FMC-CL-PXIe bracket. FC-CL  IP core in binary format for supporting FMC-CL interface to the camera. The Source version is also available. Please, contact the Sundance sales team for details.
