Description

Xylon's logiFMC-GMSL2 12-Channel GMSL2 FMC video daughter card supports the second generation Maxim Integrated's Gigabit Multimedia Serial Link 2 (GMSL2), which is one of the most popular automotive high-speed serial links for in-vehicle video, audio, and communication data streams transfers.

The card is primarily designed to enable quick prototyping and evaluation of automotive multi-camera Advanced Driver Assistance (ADAS) and Autonomous Driving (AD) applications. It enables easy interfacing of up to twelve (12) automotive video cameras to hardware boards based on the Xilinx FPGA, SoC, MPSoC and ACAP video and vision processors. The FMC daughter card integrates six (6) Maxim Integrated deserializer chips (max. 6 Gbps) that pair with the counterpart GMSL2 and GMSL1 serializer chips from Maxim Integrated. Each deserializer can be initialized through a single common I2C bus, supports two GMSL2 differential inputs and converts them to four-lanes MIPI Camera Serial Interface 2 (MIPI CSI-2) outputs.

The logiFMC-GMSL2 FMC daughter card is compatible with the existing Xilinx Zynq UltraScale+™ MPSoC based ZCU102/ZCU104/ZCU106 Evaluation Kits and the DRIVE-XA Automated Driving Development Platform. It can also be used with other FMC compatible Xilinx and third-party evaluation boards based on Xilinx devices with the MIPI compatible pins. While the logiFMC-GMSL2 FMC daughter card supports all twelve video channels available through six deserializer chips, the exact number of supported video channels in specific hardware configurations depends on the carrier’s board capabilities; mainly on the number of available pins for the MIPI CSI-2 connections through the FMC connector.
