Matrox GEN/F/64/8/STD Image Processor. PCI Vision Processor Main Board | C80/NOA/64MB, Integrated 8 MB Display | Standard Analog Color/Monochrome Line/Frame Scan Acquisition | for Integrating Acquisition, Processing and Display Simple Type: Image Processor

State-of-the-art hardware components Matrox Genesis vision processor is a unique design based on the PCI platform that uses Texas Instruments' TMS320C80 DSP. Our design exploits the full power of the C80 multi-processor DSP, the PCI bus,SDRAM memory, the MGA 2064W graphics accelerator and WRAM memory. Also onboard Matrox Genesis is a powerful ASIC dedicated to accelerating neighborhood operations. The advanced Grab Module can handle virtually any monochrome or color video stream. A key component in Matrox Genesis' design that links everything together is the Video Interface ASIC. VIA: at the heart of Matrox Genesis Custom designed by Matrox, the VIA (Video Interface ASIC) is an intelligent controller that performs optimized transfers between acquisition, display and processing sections in the Matrox Genesis system, as well as to and from external resources. It is also a powerful data formatting engine and is responsible for device synchronization. The Main Board and the Processor Board each have two VIAs. The VIAs let Matrox Genesis sustain high throughput I/O and allow the C80/NOA to be completely dedicated to processing, since the VIA off-loads all data management tasks. The most comprehensive software available for a C80-based board Matrox has extensive experience in providing software tools to meet the needs of developers in scientific and industrial imaging. We know what functions are required to solve machine vision, medical imaging and image analysis applications. Matrox Imaging Library (MIL) is a comprehensive image processing library that includes ActiveMIL, a collection of ActiveX controls (OCXs). Access to the board is also provided through the board-specific Matrox Genesis Native Library (GNL). All library functions have been fully optimized to exploit the full processing power and functionality of the hardware.
