GigE Vision® IP for ALTERA®


GigE_Vision_0.pngBy using our GigE Vision IP, you can transfer input image data, which is read from image sensor etc., to Gigabit Ethernet network easily and timely in accordance with GigE Vision protocol. As e ective transfer rate, 995Mbps can be accomplished, it is almost equal to Gigabit Ethernet's maximum bandwidth 1Gbps. In addition, you can build highly reliable system because image gap areas arisen from defect packets and packet losses are repairable by using packet resend function. The GigE Vision IP is suitable for various image transfer related applications which make the fullest possible use of Gigabit Ethernet like high resolution machine vision camera, high frame rate security camera, medical imaging system required high reliability, and so on.
