The Chameleon II is the industry’s first CoaXPress v2.1 Camera Simulator. This simulator is capable of generating video streams and test patterns of up to 4 CoaXPress 2.0 links in single, dual, and quad modes. Each link supports standard CoaXPress v2.1 bitrates up to 12.5 Gbps.
This product is ideally suited for the development of industrial, defense, and aerospace Machine Vision Systems and applications. The Chameleon II can easily transmit generic test patterns, customer’s specific pre-processed data, or custom video streams on the CoaXPress v2.1 links. It also provides GPIO for machine control signals, such as triggers, shaft encoders, exposure control, and general I/O, which can be simulated together with the video streams. The Simulator enables transmitting the video streams from onboard memory as well as run time uploading the streams from computer memory. The Chameleon II Simulator also enables PoCXP simulation by connecting an external load. The Chameleon II uses standard Micro-BNC connectors as an interface and standard headers for general-purpose I/O. The Simulator utilizes PCIe Gen3 x8 links for communication with Host PC for video uploading and configuration.
