Komodo CLHS is a high performance Camera Link HS frame-grabber with standard CLHS X Protocol (10 G). Video streams are received using 4 SFP+ 10 Gbps transceivers and a single QSFP+ 40 Gbps optical interface. Each link supports standard X Protocol bitrates up to 10 Gbps. This FPGA card has flexible DDR3 memory with up to 144 Gb available and 128 Gbps throughput. A high speed 8 lane PCIg3 express interface allows fast video transfers between optical links and computer memory. Connection to devices externally is via GPIO for machine control signals, such as triggers, shaft encoders, exposure control and general I/O. Control is separate from video stream acquisition.
The Komodo Camera Link HS Frame Grabber supports multiple modes of configuration and system topology. Few of these are presented in following diagrams.
