High Speed Serial

Custom Interface to High Frame Rate Camera

Developed an 80 MHz Cameralink dual medium interface for the Xenics Cheetah-640CL which was the world's fastest IR camera. This project also required the design of VHDL interface code for talking with peripherals connected to a TB-6V-LX550T-PCIEXP. It communicated using the Xilinx Aurora protocol over two sets of four 3.125 Gbps fiber optic links to Virtex-6 SX475T and SX315T populated XMC cards. Co-designed the architecture and VHDL implementation strategy for the entire system.
