The DSKeye gigabit from Bitec is a TI DSK daughterboard gathering the latest FPGA technology, a 5.2 mega pixel camera and user configurable interface options to deliver a Smart Camera system for development and research at a fraction of the cost normally associated with such technology. The DSKeye gigabit has evolved over three generations with each stage introducing enhanced flexibility and functionality to meet growing customer demands. Designed around the latest Altera, Cyclone II FPGA, the DSKeye gigabit allows developers complete access to the DSP/Camera interface and even the inclusion of custom FPGA processing functions.
The latest evolution of the DSKeye introduces gigabit Ethernet interfacing. Based on the latest ASIX high-performance 32/16-bit gigabit Ethernet MAC, the DSKeye now permits users to transfer image data using the latest networking technology. A DSP/BIOS optimised port of the popular open source lwIP stack is included with the DSKeye gigabit. This software TCP/IP implementation allows high performance TCP/IP networking using standard Berkley Sockets or alternative low-level access.
The Santa Cruz interface allows developers to include custom interface standards or select from a growing range of modules. Clock here for a list of compatible daughter modules. A prototying board is also available to establish custom interface PHY layers with the MAC implemented in the FPGA.
