Industrial Smart Camera

SMILODON 10G EVO is a highly customizable and user-programmable, high-speed smart camera featuring a high-performance FPGA. It is a camera with a Zynq™ UltraScale+™ MPSoC-based Kria K26 SOM, a high-speed imaging sensor, and 1 or 10 Gigabit Ethernet. It includes high-performance Arm system-on-chip (SoC) technology, combined with high-speed industrial Gpixel imaging sensors.

Targeted for applications in laser triangulation, motion capture, industrial process automation, and industrial quality control, Smilodon 10G EVO includes a fully customizable and user-programmable, open-reference design for a high-speed, FPGA-based camera and application development system. Its emphasis is on an open hardware / software development model, high frame rates, real-time image processing on an FPGA, and modern graphical user interface support on the PC side.

A suite of versatile and high-performance tools for the Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC is used to develop algorithms and process data in real time. Images are acquired by four different Gpixel GMAX25xx sensors with up to 48x LVDS interfaces (46 Gbps), achieving brilliant images at a very high speed. The on-board 4GB DDR4 memory with 19Gb/s of bandwidth enables complex buffered image processing.

The reference design can be easily edited with standard Vivado™ tools. Optomotive’s custom IP cores seamlessly integrate inside the Vivado IDE toolchain. A large portion of the FPGA programmable logic (PL) is free for the programming and development of new algorithms or the implementation of additional IP cores.

The 1.2GHz quad-core Arm Cortex®-A53 processor programmable subsystem runs a Linux OS with a custom-made EVO control and streaming stack (including a zero-copy TCP/IP stack). The SoC also includes dual 600MHz Cortex R5 processors that are free for user data processing. User applications or custom data post-processing can easily be added to an existing design.

Frequently Asked Questions

Yes, Optomotive provides software packages for communication and data capture.

Yes, a 10G SFP+ network card is needed to exploit full bandwidth potential. We recommend Mellanox (Nvidia) network cards. For video recording, a fast CPU and NVMe disk are required. 

Yes, if the user signs the license agreement. This is a vendor lock-in agreement.

Yes, Optomotive can provide hardware, software, and FPGA design services.

Yes, with the on-board 1G Ethernet or with a 10G SFP+ to RJ45 module. Even NBASE-T speeds (2.5 & 5 Gbps) can be supported with an SFP+ to RJ45 module. However, transmission of 10G over a UTP cable is very power hungry (3W each node), especially over longer cables. Therefore, we recommend using SFP+ DAC cables to minimize power and improve image quality at lower temperature.

No, but this can be designed on request.

Optomotive can provide PEAK detector IP for laser triangulation and BLOB centroid detector IP for motion capture or navigation purposes and RLE image compression.
