Product Description

The SLVS-EC RX IP Core reduces overhead and complexity implementing a SONY imager with SLVS-EC. As on-chip function block connecting the customer’s FPGA logic with the image sensor’s data stream, the IP Core receives the interface data, manages the byte-to-pixel conversion for various lane configurations and thus prepares a highly-efficient processing workflow run on the FPGA. The FRAMOS software supports SLVS-EC v1.2 with 1, 2, 4, 8 lanes configurable by the user and delivers pixels formats from 8 to 14-bit of raw data. By de-risking the sensor implementation it significantly reduces the development efforts and accelerates the time to market. The IP Core is available for the following devices: - Xilinx Artix-7™ - Xilinx Kintex-7™ - Xilinx Zynq-7000™ SoC - Xilinx Kintex UltraScale™ - Xilinx Kintex UltraScale+™ - Xilinx Zynq UltraScale+™ MPSoC An appropriate Evaluation Kit is available separately. Compatibility to further devices on request.
