Image processor

The Falcon XL image-processing board uses field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) for both the input and processing modules to provide real-time image processing. The FPGAs provide better parallelism for image-processing algorithms than digital signal processors, allowing for very high-speed processing. Because the FPGAs are programmable, the functions performed by the board can be changed by downloading code to the board. The company offers custom image-processing code development. The board has

Because the FPGAs are programmable, the functions performed by the board can be changed by downloading code to the board. The company offers custom image-processing code development. The board has 2-Mbyte VRAM for video and 2-Mbyte VRAM for nondestructive graphics overlay as well as u¥to 32 Mbyte of DRAM memory.
