Gidel PCIe/104 Enhances Machine-Vision Functions

Alrad has brought out the Gidel PCIe/104 computation accelerator. The PROC104 system provides a high-capacity, high-speed FPGA-based platform fortified with high-throughput and massive memory, resulting in a powerful and flexible system. The PROC104 complies with PCIe/104 standard, incorporating compact, self-stacking and rugged industrial-standard connectors. It is ideal for high-performance FPGA development and deployment across a range of SWaP-constrained application areas, including signal intelligence, image processing, software-defined radio and autonomous modules/vehicles.

The PROC104 can be hosted via four-lane PCI Express. The board's high-speed performance coupled with memory and add-on daughter boards' flexible architecture enable the system to meet almost any computational needs. In addition to 512MB onboard memory, two SODIMM sockets provide an extra 8GB. Abundant memory conjoined with fast PCIe connection enables strong co-processing between a standard PC operating system and the PROC104's FPGA.

The PROC104 system, with Gidel's PROCDeveloper's Kit and tools, offers incredible performance yet supports quick implementation of designs. These unique features are achieved by eliminating the need for a high-speed board design, a PCI Express application driver, board-constraints implementation and environment FPGA code.

It is targeted at SWaP-constrained industrial applications, including: COTS acquisition and accelerator boards in: HPC (high-performance computing); machine vision and imaging; high-performance acquisition systems; bioinformatics applications; SW defined radio and autonomous modules/vehicles; ASIC and SoC prototyping; and complex algorithm and IP validation.
