Photron, San Diego, CA, has introduced the IDP Express R2000 system. The R2000 features an on-board field-programmable gate array (FPGA) to provide developers access to the open-ended architecture. The new system supports one or two of Photron’s miniature CMOS high speed camera heads at full or reduced resolution and speed. It is available in two configurations, without the FPGA and with an XILINX FPGA. Without the FPGA, the R2000 operates in a typical, image acquisition capacity, writing image data directly to the host computer’s RAM. Operating with the XILINX FPGA, the tool enables real-time hardware-based pre-processing while recording the event.
