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

  • NVIDIA Tegra K1 Embedded APU for complex image capture processing
  • WOLF Frame Grabber eXtreme (FGX) Embedded FPGA capture engine
  • HD-SDI input
  • HD-SDI, HDMI or encoded H.264 TS output
  • Advanced power management, tunable as low as 10 Watts



WOLF’s MXC‑FGX‑TK1 is an image capture and processing module for aerospace and defense. It includes both an NVIDIA Tegra K1 APU and WOLF’s Frame Grabber eXtreme (FGX). The FGX can capture two HD-SDI inputs. The video data can be routed to the Tegra K1 for processing and the processed data can be output as HD‑SDI, HDMI or an encoded H.264 transport stream.

This module is designed for use as an ancillary processor module, for integration onto VPX carriers or COM Express baseboards, or operating as a stand-alone board.

The MXC‑FGX‑TK1 is designed to operate reliably in harsh environments while performing precision-intensive operations, such as image processing, video stabilization, filtering, terrain analytics, 3D visualization of geospatial data, object recognition, and tracking.
