    nVision GX3 Description

    Complete Linux Based SoC

    nVision GX3 is a fully integrated multimedia device with a complete peripheral set, making it suitable for complex embedded video applications. It comes equipped with a powerful TI DM8168 video processor with ARM® Cortex™-A8 RISC CPU, allowing for video processing to be separate from network and I/O functions.

    H.264 Streaming and Advanced Video Processing

    nVision GX3 contains two high-definition video coprocessing channels capable of simultaneously encoding and decoding video in H.264 at 1080p60 resolution. Image processing functions such as image enhancement, stabilization, advanced motion detection, noise filtering, frame de-interlacing, image rotation, video overlay, or scan, format and rate conversion can be accomplished.

    Sony FCB-EV Series Block Camera Support

    The nVision GX3 Sony Block Video Module supports dual FCB-EV series HDTV block cameras. Communication and power are provided by the nVision GX3, allowing for a clean install with available 30-pin micro-coax cables.

    HDMI Video Display Output

    nVision GX3 includes an HDMI 1.3a-compliant transmitter for digital video and audio data to display devices up to 1080p60 at 165MHz pixel rates. Output video can recorded playback or live video input.

    Extensive Control

    nVision GX3 contains extensive camera and I/O control to make application development simple. By utilizing the integrated ARM processor and 2 GB frame buffer, nVision GX3 provides reliable image transfer to prevent dropped images. nVision GX3 also supplies a dual UART serial interface to control cameras, a USB 2.0 interface, an SD memory card interface, and programmable general-purpose I/O triggers for event notification. nVision GX3 is also available with up to 1 GB of flash memory for boot load options, presets, or integrated web interface.

    nVision GX3 API and Developers Kit

    The nVision GX3 API is a comprehensive board support package that comes complete with drivers and samples. For ease in application development, the nVision GX3 Developer's Kit also supplies nVision GX3 Audio/Video and Data I/O boards with cabling.
