SUNDANCE DSP Launches New MIPI Camera interface FMC Card

Sundance Digital Signal Processing, Inc.

Sundance DSP added to its Vision System Camera Link compatible vision cards a new line of products compatile with MIPI camera interfaces. MIPI camera interface is gaining ground and acceptance by filling the gap of a spectrum of different camera interface standards. FMC-MIPI is an HPC FMC compatile module that can be interfaced to a Sundance DSP Solar Express 120, PCIe carrier or PXI700 PXIe carrier ( see Sundance DSP web site for more details ).

FMC-MIPI is designed to provide connectivity between FPGA on a carrier and 2x MIPI CSI-2 4 lanes input and 2x MIPI DSI2 4 lanes output interfaces. Module provides conversion from MIPI CSI-2 to parallel interface or vice versa to 2x MIPI CSI2 4 lanes output. This means that concurrently, 2 MIPI based sensor/camera and 2 MIPI based displays could be supported concurrently. An adapter card is also supplied that can house 2 sensors / cameras. Adapter cards for several MIPI based cameras from Sony and Onsemi are available for quick project development. The default adapter supplied with FMC-MIPI is MIPI-IMX169-C and it can take two cameras modules based on the Sony IMX169 camera (lattice part number LF-C2P-EVN). Adapters for other cameras like IMX378 are available; please contact our support team to learn more. COTS cable for connecting FMC to adapter card is available; Samtec part number HLCD-30-03.00-BH-TH-2.
