Matrox® Imaging is pleased to announce the arrival of the Matrox FDK, a powerful development kit for the Matrox Rapixo CXP Pro family of frame grabbers, based on Xilinx Kintex® UltraScale™ devices. The Matrox FDK helps developers harness the full power and flexibility of FPGAs for image processing. Used in combination with Xilinx Vivado® Design suite, the Matrox FDK supports the development of custom FPGA configurations that relieve the host system of intensive image-processing functions.
Accelerate creation of custom FPGA configurations
Matrox Imaging provides a library of ready-made FPGA design components within the Matrox FDK; the FDK also works in tandem with the Xilinx IP library, delivering more than 50 image-processing functions and associated source code to streamline application development. With the aid of Xilinx Vivado’s high-level synthesis (HLS) tool, components from either or both libraries compile quickly into compatible building blocks useable within the Matrox FDK.
Direct path to FPGA hardware
Designed for software application developers and FPGA designers, the Vivado HLS tool delivers streamlined access to the underlying FPGA hardware. Using C and C++ languages, the Vilvado HLS enables highly iterative, software-oriented design methods for quick development of FPGA hardware modules from C/C++ source code. This allows developers to utilize FPGA design components—either the provided Xilinx examples or customized versions—without the burden of generating the peripheral logic. Custom- and ready-made Matrox FPGA design components combine easily within the graphical Xilinx Vivado IP Integrator tool.
Supported by leading-edge multi-link CoaXPress frame grabbers
Matrox FDK leverages the prowess of the Matrox Rapixo CXP family of frame grabbers, supporting version 2.0 of the CoaXPress® (CXP) digital interface standard.
