Point Grey Research fast-tracks development of 1394b


October 21, 2003 - PGR was able to fast-track the development of their 1394b camera by designing their own 1394b LINK layer in an FPGA from Xilinx instead of waiting for a semiconductor vendor to supply these 1394b components. Specific to the camera shown at Stuttgart, a CMOS HDTV image sensor from Rockwell Scientific was used to deliver 1920x1080 high quality, uncompressed images at 30FPS, generating 62MB of sustained bandwidth.

"The HDTV camera was just a demonstration, but we are actively integrating the 1394b technology into our products. We believe we will be one of the first to market," says PGR's Vladimir Tucakov.

Point Grey Research is a worldwide leader in the development of advanced digital camera technology products. Based in Vancouver, British Columbia, PGR designs, manufactures and distributes IEEE-1394 cameras, stereo vision cameras and spherical digital video cameras to a broad spectrum of industries. Through a close working relationship with its customers, PGR continues to be at the forefront of innovation.
