Komodo – CoaXPress™ Open FPGA Platform
Komodo CoaXPress Open FPGA Overview
Komodo Open FPGA is high-performance yet low-cost open FPGA platform for CoaXPress applications. The card is based on Arria V GZ powerful FPGA that offers up to 400K flexible logic elements, 1K DSP blocks and 28Mbit of embedded memory. The board offers a flexible DDR3 memory system with up to 144 Gb of memory and 128 Gbps throughput. A high speed 8 lane Gen 3.0 PCI express interface allows fast data transfers between CoaXPress links and computer memory while a versatile GPIO with multi-standard support enables connection to external devices such as triggers or strobes.
Together with Altera’s PCIe Hard IPs and KAYA’s CoaXPress IPs it can be easily adopted for any Machine Vision application. Each CoaXPress link of the board can be configured as transmitter (Camera) or receiver (Frame Grabber)
The Komodo uses standard DIN connectors as a CoaXPress interface to the camera and standard 2.54mm headers for general purpose I/O.
