SX proFRAME, video and data grabbing solution by Solectrix
4 December 2018
Modern medicine requires powerful systems for image acquisition and processing. SX proFRAME, the Solectrix video and data grabber system, provides a modular solution for demanding, image-based applications from automotive to medical.
High-performance image acquisition and processing systems have long become indispensable in modern medical technology. Constantly rising requirements such as low-loss transmission over long distances and extremely fast signal processing place the highest demands on the data processing system.
With the SX proFRAME system, Solectrix GmbH offers a modular solution for the acquisition of large amounts of data. The most common use case for our customers is the capturing of image data. At the heart of the PC-based system is a PCI Express card based on a Xilinx Artix-7 FPGA with 512 MB of DDR memory.
Depending on the target application, it is possible to equip the SX proFRAME grabber card with up to four camera adapters. Our outstandingly wide range of camera adapters enables the integration of a large number of image sensors via interfaces such as FPD-Link III, GMSL, CoaXPress and others. When using the system for capturing image data, the real-time processing is handled via FPGA-based imaging modules based on the extensive Solectrix know-how in the field of digital image processing.
Typically, a system structure consists of the SX proFRAME grabber card with one to four camera adapters and the corresponding software up to the connection to a customer-specific application.
Originally developed for use in hardware-in-the-loop systems, our grabber system is used in the development, diagnostics and validation of driver assistance systems as well as in the development of surround camera systems. However, the modular concept allows targeted adaptation to numerous other applications, especially in the field of modern medical technology.
