Microtronix Announces Link Alignment Support for Medium and Full Camera Link IP Core Configurations

LONDON, ON -- Friday, October 5, 2012 -- Microtronix, a leading provider of Intellectual Property (IP) cores for Altera field programmable gate array (FPGA) devices, today announced link alignment support for medium and full Camera Link IP Core configurations.

The addition of a Link Aligner enables the Camera Link IP Core to support medium and full configurations in which variances in cable length cause timing delays between links or the use of Camera Link cable extenders introduce clock drift in multi-links (medium and full) systems resulting in data errors and artifacts in the video stream. The Link Aligner block uses FIFOs to adjust for phase delays and automatically bring the links into alignment. Additionally, it synchronizes the output Ports to the STROBE/XCLK clock.

“By adding the Link Aligner to the Camera Link Receiver we can now offer customers an integrated solution which assures data integrity of Camera Link systems in real world applications,” said Norman McCall, President of Microtronix.

The Camera Link core is designed for building both Camera (transmitter) and Frame Grabber (receiver) devices. It supports camera control signals, bi-directional serial Camera Link communication, video data and automatic link alignment. For ease of use, a Quartus II software configuration GUI streamlines the design process. The use of Altera’s TimeQuest timing analyzer and design constraints achieves timing closure and design fit over temperature, power and voltage to ensure a stable and reliable end product.


The Microtronix Camera Link IP Core is available for immediate sale through the Microtronix Webstore and through our International Distributor Network.  For more information, please contact: Email Contact at Microtronix or visit our website to download a free evaluation copy of the core.
