HD‑SDI Frame Grabber with 325 GFLOPS Tegra-K1 CUDA Processing

  • NVIDIA® Tegra-K1 APU for image processing
  • WOLF Frame Grabber eXtreme (FGX) embedded FPGA capture engine
  • 325 GFLOPS processing
  • APU accelerated H.264 encoding
  • Advanced power management (tunable as low as 10 watts)



WOLF’s VNX‑TK1-FGX 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.

The FMC‑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.

The rugged VNX-FGX-TK1 modules uses the compact VITA 74 specification which defines an extremely small form factor. This form factor is roughly 50 percent of the weight and 30 percent of the volume compared to a typical 3U VPX.
