Neousys release the PCIe-GL26, an AI-enabled GMSL2 Frame Grabber Card that will accelerate autonomous vehicles applications.
The PCIe-GL26 is an automotive 6-port GMSL2 Camera Frame Grabber Card with 21 TOPS AI Performance and an industrial-grade turnkey solution that incorporates drivers for selected GMSL2 cameras with video streaming sample codes.
PCIe-GL26 is a turnkey solution that enables GMSL2 cameras on existing x86 computers for autonomous vehicle applications. PCIe-GL26 supports up to 6 GMSL2 FAKRA Z inputs with pre-installed drivers for selected cameras, and it features NVIDIA’s Jetson Xavier™ NX System-on-Module with powerful AI performance.
Automotive GMSL2 cameras are ideal for autonomous vehicle applications due to their advanced features, such as IP67 waterproof, high dynamic range (120dB HDR), auto white balance (AWB), and LED flicker mitigation (LFM). It also benefits computer vision applications in outdoor environments where light conditions change.
Powerful x86 computers with PCIe-GL26 can obtain high-quality images with minimal latency regardless of lighting conditions, from bright sunny days to pitch-black nights, making the PCIe-GL26 an ideal sensor hub for sensor fusion and data pre-processing in autonomous vehicles.
Why choose the PCIe-GL26 GMSL2 Frame Grabber Card?
Ideal for x86-Based Autonomous Vehicle Computing Platform Developers
- • AI Empowered GMSL2 Camera Streams:
Powered by Jetson Xavier™ NX, PCIe-GL26 offers AI performance with up to 22 streams of simultaneous 1080p@30FPS video encoding capability. It also provides full-HD raw video streaming with 3-exposure HDR, LFM, auto exposure, and auto-white balance.
- • Unique synchronisation mechanism:
able to acquire images from six GMSL2 cameras simultaneously within microseconds of channel-to-channel skew. It can also accept a GPS PPS signal to align image data with LIDAR or PCIe-GL26 in another host machine.
- • Convenient Upgrade:
PCIe-GL26 can be easily installed in most host computers with a PCIe expansion slot, and is compatible with Windows and Linux operating systems.
- • Built for Harsh Environments:
The PCIe-GL26 can withstand harsh conditions with a wide operating temperature range of -25°C to 60°C.
With a half-length, standard height and single-slot form factor, the PCIe-GL26 can be accommodated in most host computers with a PCIe expansion and with pre-built sample codes, a host computer can install up to four PCIe-GL26 cards and support up to 24x GMSL2 camera streams.
