NVIDIA® Tegra® K1 Video Processing Unit, Includes SDI Input / Output

Key Features

  • NVIDIA Tegra K1 Embedded APU for complex image capture processing
  • WOLF Frame Grabber eXtreme (FGX) Embedded FPGA capture engine
  • HD-SDI input, HD-SDI and HDMI output
  • Advanced power management, tunable as low as 10 Watts

WOLF’s MXC-FGX-TK1 is a revolutionary video processing unit for aerospace and defense, leveraging NVIDIA’s Kepler technology 28nm Tegra K1 APU packed with five ARM cores, and 325 GFLOPS of CUDA processing using as little as 10 Watts.

This HD-SDI Frame Grabber eXtreme (FGX) allows complete control of captured image data for complex analysis and pre-processing independent of the host Intel or PowerPC SBC.

This module is designed as an ancillary processor module, for integration onto VITA 46.0 VPX carriers, COM Express baseboards, or operating as a stand-alone board. The MXC-FGX-TK1 captures HD-SDI video (SMPTE-292M) for GPU processing and display as HD‑SDI or HDMI output, or for encoding as an H.264 transport stream.

The MXC-FGX-TK1 thrives in rugged environments performing precision-intensive operations, such as image processing, video stabilization, filtering, terrain analytics, 3D visualization of geospatial data, object recognition and tracking.
