Gidel HawkEye-CL | 2x SDR26 connectors | 8 lane PCIe Gen 3 | Developer’s Kit

The Gidel HawkEye-CL frame grabbing and real-time image processing system provides the core infrastructure required to support the most demanding Vision and Imaging applications.

The HawkEye-CL is Camera Link Rev. 2.0 compliant and supports 80-bit Camera Link modes, including 10-bits/8-tap and 8-bit/10-tap modes. The HawkEye-CL family is based on PCIe Gen. 3 x8, providing CPU-free ultra-fast offload capacity of up to 64 Gb/s. Huge data buffers of up to 16 GB fortify the acquisition bandwidth and the image processing capabilities on powerful Arria 10 FPGAs.

The HawkEye is supported by Gidel’s Proc Developer’s kit, which includes the ProcFG GUI application, an API library and examples for developing a customized application, and the ProcWizard application for efficient development of image processing algorithms on FPGA.

The HawkEye series offers a number of options to accommodate diverse application needs, from plug-and-play high-performance frame grabbers to a full system solution that comprises acquisition, open-FPGA image processing, and a flexible custom camera interface. Off-the-shelf HawkEye solutions include support for Camera Link and CoaXPress cameras.
