Presentation at FPGA Conference Europe in Munich, Germany, July 5-7, 2022
MLE presents NPAP, a TCP/IP full accelerator from Fraunhofer HHI, for use in Multi-Gigabit High-Speed Camera Image Transport. With increasing resolution and faster frame-rates in cameras and other image sensors, current standards such as GigEVision are running out of steam. Furthermore, modern “down-stream” image processing based on Artificial Intelligence relies on loss-less transport of pixels, lines and entire image frames. This presentation goes into the details of TCP/IP as a reliable, loss-less transport and closes with an implementation example using MicroChip PolarFire FPGA.
