SBS Leverages FPGA in Development Kits to Boost Imaging Applications

9/18/2003 - SBS Technologies® (Nasdaq: SBSE), a leading provider of embedded computing technology, introduced the TS-DK-IT01, an imaging development kit aimed at leveraging Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) processing capabilities for high-performance imaging applications. This development kit includes the SBS Tsunami FPGA platform, infrastructure software, development environment and multiple resources for integration of CameraLinkTM and other custom image processing applications.

The SBS Tsunami, an advanced FPGA-based computing platform uses multiple FPGAs as the actual processing engine on a high-performance single board computer (SBC). The result is a complete computing system capable of supporting algorithm-intensive, high-bandwidth applications with far less real estate, lower power, and less expense than existing multi-CPU or DSP systems.

“FPGA-based processing power comes from ASIC-like efficiency of software re-programmable logic, and the ability to parallel-process multiple streams of data,” said Ron Strauss, Vice President and General Manager of SBS Canada. “If your imaging application requires the resources of multiple CPUs or DSPs to process the required data rate and algorithm complexity, you should instead be considering an FPGA Computing solution.”
