CrowdFunding - SL Interphase Launches Robot Kit "Logitraxx" on Kickstarter

Logitraxx is an FPGA based Do-it-Yourself robot learning kit for engineers and enthusiasts.

Chandler, Az July 17, 2014


Engineering Services Company SL Interphase, LLC launches a Kickstarter campaign for its first robotic kit called "Logitraxx." A first of its kind all FPGA based robotic system designed to instruct and demonstrate the fundamentals of FPGA based intelligent robotic systems.

The kit is primarily designed for engineers and enthusiasts within the do-it-yourself (DIY) community to help learn the fundamentals of FPGA development for robotic use. FPGAs can enhance the processing capability of computer systems up to hundreds of times faster than a non-FPGA based system making it possible for a much smarter robot.

However, FPGAs are still widely unknown within vast parts of the high tech community as they can be difficult to implement. The language used to develop FPGAs can also be challenging to learn as well. Logitraxx is designed primarily as a learning tool to help overcome these barriers and uniquely engineered to help with learning the fundamentals of FPGA design and hardware based sensor control.

Logitraxx is an open source design under the Creative Commons Attribution-Share-Alike 4.0 International License. Schematic and board drawing information will be provided at product release as well as sample code blocks driving similar types of sensors already widely popular with software based systems.

SL Interphase is an electronic design services company specializing in product development for commercial, industrial, and defense industries. We are also specialized in rugged electronics development for extreme environments. At SLI, we can handle all aspects of the development cycle from concept to production.

BitFlow Introduces 6th Generation Camera Link Frame Grabber: The Axion

BitFlow Introduces 6th Generation Camera Link Frame Grabber: The Axion

BitFlow has offered a Camera Link frame grabbers for almost 15 years. This latest offering, our 6th generation combines the power of CoaXPress with the requirements of Camera Link 2.0. Enabling a single or two camera system to operate at up to 850 MB/S per camera, the Axion-CL family is the best choice for CL frame grabber. Like the Cyton-CXP frame grabber, the Axion-CL leverages features such as the new StreamSync system, a highly optimized DMA engine, and expanded I/O capabilities that provide unprecedented flexibility in routing. There are two options available; Axion 1xE & Axion 2xE. The Axion 1xE is compatible with one base, medium, full or 80-bit camera offering PoCL, Power over Camera Link, on both connectors. The Axion 2xE is compatible with two base, medium, full or 80-bit cameras offering PoCL on both connectors for both cameras. The Axion-CL is a culmination of the continuous improvements and updates BitFlow has made to Camera Link frame grabbers.
