The leonardo LS line is the real solution for fast LVDS digital video acquisition and realtime processing of the incoming video data.The product line comes in a PCI and a Compact PCI model based on a very strong architecture.
The common digital video interface is RS-644 (optionally RS-422) compatible, with up to 40 bits data. A dual channel mode is offered to acquire two independent 16 bit video input streams. The computer bus interface is electrically compatible with PCI 2.2 and mechanically with standard PCI and Compact PCI. The bus interface is PCI-X compatible (64 bit/66 Mhz), resulting in an extreme transfer rate of 528 MB/s on the computer bus.
The leonardo is equiped with a state of the art Xilinx FPGA, offering realtime preprocessing of the video data, such as e.g. contrast stretching in gray value domain with LUT, RGB mosaic color restoration and random 2D convolution filters. The video data is stored in a large on board memory. The maximum image resolution is 64k x 64k pixels.
The leonardo LS family is supported for Windows , Linux, Realtime Linux, Solaris and QNX .
