SCS Surround Measurement Technology
Modern cars are using more and more cameras in order to provide a better and more comprehensive display of their surroundings. Camera manufacturers need reliable measurement technology to design such systems. The SCS measurement technology box makes it possible to record and play back up to six LVDS cameras. The ‘Recorder System’ developed by SCS has been adopted by automobile OEMs and tier 1 companies for the development of cameras and surround systems.
Filters for EB Assist ADTF for recording and playing back are available, as well as a stand-alone GUI developed by SCS.
The system consists of the Spartan 6 FPGA card developed by SCS and a customised adapter card for the corresponding camera system. This allows precise hardware timestamps to be recorded and multiple cameras to be synchronised with each other. Furthermore, algorithms can be calculated directly on the FPGA in order to relieve the measurement technology computer. The data is transferred to the measurement technology PC via Ethernet connections.
Thanks to its system structure, SCS can adapt it very quickly to your Maxim, TI or National Semiconductor serialiser.
