NI Announces Module for Camera Link FPGA Image Processing

NEWS RELEASE – June 7, 2010 – National Instruments today announced the release of a new vision module for the PXI platform that provides a high-performance parallel processing architecture for hardware-defined timing, control and image pre-processing. The new NI 1483 Camera Link adapter module, in combination with an NI FlexRIO field-programmable gate array (FPGA) board, offers a solution for embedding vision and control algorithms directly on FPGAs. Engineers and scientists can use FPGAs to process and analyze an image in real time with little to no CPU intervention. Additionally, using FPGAs helps eliminate the need to design custom hardware.

"We see the speed and flexibility of FPGAs as a crucial technology to perform intensive image processing at high speeds," said James Cotton, a graduate researcher in neuroscience at Baylor College of Medicine. "NI LabVIEW FPGA graphical programming tools along with NI FlexRIO FPGA hardware for PXI technology, allowed us to quickly develop a high quality eye tracking solution that can resolve fixation position to within tenths of a degree at up to 500 Hz.”
