GRT offers five form factors that support a range of video formats at data rates from 160 Mbps to 1.5 Gbps. HOTLink II™ video (HL2V) cards are based on Cypress HOTLink II interfaces that are Fibre Channel–compatible at the FC-0 and FC-1 layers.
The HOTLink II video cards and associated drivers use DMA to move video frames to and from on-board memory. The card has two 16-Mbyte image stores (ping and pong) such that PCI/PCIe can access image memory while receiving live video. PCI/PCIe transfers up to 500 Mbps can be achieved depending on card and system configuration.
Use our flexible GUI to easily configure frame size, header size, and SOF trigger; enable receiver; view images; and save received image to file. You have complete control over key video frame characteristics: frame size, SOF character or idle trigger count, number of bytes per pixel, bit shift, and image offset.
Configure the following parameters: frame size, SOF character, SOL character, EOL character, number of EOL nulls, EOF character, number of EOF nulls, number of bytes per pixel, bit shift, and image offset.
With a software development kit (SDK), you can quickly deploy:
Full SDKs are available for Windows or Linux. A VxWorks library of functions is also available. For those using LabVIEW™ to develop systems with our Matrix or GRAVity cards, we offer SDKs with sample and functional code that can be quickly customized (see Datasheet [PDF]).
Our SDKs includes application programming interface (API), User Guide, Programmer Guide, sample code, and four hours of technical support. SDK training classes and applications development consulting are available upon request.
