SLVS-EC Rx IP
Next generation Sony CMOS image sensor interface
Today Sony CMOS image sensors and Intel FPGAs are used in nearly all machine vision cameras, with Sony SLVS-EC the interface of choice to handle high-speed, long-distance communications between the two. It has become especially popular because it uses an embedded clock technology that’s tolerant of lane-to-lane skew.
Now, with our SLVS-EC Rx IP, Macnica Vision is offering an intellectual property package that makes board-level design for SLVS-EC very easy. It’s the toolkit you need for faster, better, easier and more profitable camera design.
- Compliant with SLVS-EC Specification Version 1.2/2.0
- Available both for Intel and Xilinx FPGAs
- Supports various functions defined by the SLVS-EC Link layer (Intel FPGA PCS/PMA is used as Physical layer for Intel implementation)
- Supports Byte-to-Pixel conversion for various lane-configurations
- Supports Header analysis and Payload error detection
|Number of Lanes||1, 2, 4, 6, 8|
|Baud Grade||1, 2, 3*|
|Bit per Pixel||8, 10, 12, 14, 16|
|Dynamic Mode Change||Supported|
|Multiple Stream||If needed|
* Baud Grade 3 is supported by only after 10 series.
* CRC: The operating frequency may not be achievable depending on the speed grade, number of lanes, and other factors of the FPGA used.
