ADLINK Technology Inc. has released what it claims is the industry’s first PXI Express HDMI video and audio capture card, the PXIe-HDV62A, enabling integration of full single-card analog/digital video and digital audio input.
The PXIe-HDV62A, is well-suited for multimedia device testing. It delivers high-definition video data from DVI or HDMI sources, provides analog video decoding, and comprehensively supports RGB, NTSC/PAL, S-video and YPbPr formats, with an integrated audio decoder for HDMI and S/PDIF capture. ADLINK’s PXIe-HDV62A further supports uncompressed full HD up to 1080p at 60 fps, 10-bit high-resolution ADC,and HDCP. High integration allows the PXIe-HDV62A to easily manage a multitude of video and audio inputs, reducing total cost of ownership and installation.
ADLINK’s PXIe-HDV62A supports LabVIEW and Microsoft DirectShow, reducing engineering effort and accelerating time to market. ADLINK’s PXIe-HDV62A is also equipped with ADLINK’sViewCreatorPro utility, enabling system testing and debugging with no software programming required. Full driver support is provided for Windows 7/XP.
A recommended PXI Express platform includes the PXES-2590 all-hybrid 9-slot PXIe chassis and the PXIe-3975, a 3U PXIe controller with Intel Core i5-520E 2.4 GHz processor.
David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
