Avnet Extends Embedded Vision Capabilities with Multi-Camera FMC Module

PHOENIX – September 5, 2018 -- Avnet (Nasdaq: AVT), a global technology solutions company, today announced the new Multi-Camera FMC Module, an UltraZed-compatible device designed to help engineers more quickly and efficiently develop custom video systems using Xilinx MPSoCs, and in turn, allows customers to immediately start development of their vision applications. 

“Avnet recognized early that modern vision applications require a mix of hardware and software to achieve an optimal embedded solution,” said Mario Bergeron, technical marketing engineer, Avnet. “The Avnet Quad-Camera FMC Bundle, together with the Xilinx Zynq-UltraScale+ MPSoC, offers an ideal embedded platform for embedded vision algorithms.” 

The Avnet Multi-Camera FMC Module expands the company’s embedded vision support for video analytics, video imaging, surveillance and other vision-guided functionalities, with applications for a range of industries including: automotive, defense and aerospace, embedded processing, and the Internet of Things (IoT). 

“The Avnet Multi-Camera FMC module is a critical piece of Xilinx reVISION strategy and comes with complete tools, IP and design support to create an out-of-box experience for users,” said Girish Malipeddi, product manager for video and imaging solutions at Xilinx, a MIPI Alliance contributor. “In working with Avnet to deliver this product, we’ll be able to expand Xilinx’s role in automotive, drones and consumer applications.”

The Multi-Camera FMC Module is available as a standalone component or within the Quad-Camera FMC Bundle, which also includes a cable assembly and four camera modules with GMSL serialization. The Quad Camera FMC Bundle is fully integrated to the Xilinx reVISION stack, which features development resources to help design engineers get their ideas to market faster. 

“The Avnet Multi-Camera FMC module will empower our customers to quickly develop high performance imaging solutions for autonomous driving and vision-guided applications,” said John Gerard, director of marketing for the Intelligent Sensing Group at ON Semiconductor. “The integration of the AR0231AT CMOS image sensor into the Multi-Camera FMC Module enables it to achieve over 120dB dynamic range with LED flicker mitigation, allowing the platform to operate in the most challenging lighting conditions.”

Technical Specifications

The Avnet Multi-Camera FMC module supports up to four high-definition camera modules using MAXIM Integrated GMSL (Gigabit Multimedia Serial Link) technology. Features include:

  • Low Pin Count (LPC) FMC Module
  • Quad GMSL Deserializer from MAXIM Integrated (MAX9286)
  • Support for four ON Semiconductor 2.3 MPixel image sensors (AR0231AT)
  • High-Speed FAKRA Mini (HFM) connectors.

The Quad AR0231AT Camera FMC Bundle bundle is designed for Xilinx Zynq-UltraScale+ FMC carriers, including the ZCU102, ZCU104, as well as the Avnet UltraZed EV SOM and Carrier. The bundle features:

  • One AES-FMC-MULTICAM4-G FMC module
  • One Quad-HFM to 4x FAKRA Cable Assembly
  • Four camera modules, each composed of:
    • A MAX96705 Serializer Kit (MARS1-MAX96705-GEVK)
    • A AR0231AT Image Sensor Board (MARS1-AR0231AT7-GEVB)
    • Quick Start Card and downloadable documentation and reference designs.

The Multi-Camera FMC Module is $299; the Quad AR0231AT Camera FMC Bundle is $1699; both with immediate availability, and more information at: http://ultrazed.org/fmc-multi-cam4.
