Machine Vision FPGA Development Board
VDFPGA 1.0b
The Raptor Engineering Machine Vision Development Board [VDFPGA] is a high performance Spartan 3A-based [XC3S1400A-FG484] FGPA development board, designed for demanding video processing and transmission applications.

This board utilizes a fully paralleled architecture, with each of the four FPGAs having access to an independent 2MB 36-bit wide SRAM device, as well as a shared 36-bit data bus for data transmission between the four FPGAs.

Additionally, one shared 25MHz clock, three dedicated inter-FPGA data links, one DVI port, one Ethernet port, two USB ports, and several expansion headers are available for use.

Product is shown here with two optional camera modules installed.

NOTE: Due to the number of configuration options offered, each board will be custom assembled to your specifications. This may result in a lead time of up to four weeks.
Also note that FPGA4 must have access to 4MB of SRAM in order for the provided reference designs to operate.
