Pleora Unveils Industry’s First NBASE-T Interface Platform for High-Performance Imaging
Pleora Technologies introduced a platform of NBASE-T products that redefine the imaging market by transmitting uncompressed high-bandwidth GigE Vision compliant images at speeds up to 5 Gb/s over low-cost Cat 5e cabling.
With the new GigE Vision over NBASE-T interface products, camera and imaging device manufacturers can more effectively support increasing bandwidth demands for advanced manufacturing, medical, defense, and automotive imaging applications, while also achieving significant cost and design advantages.
NBASE-T is an extension of the IEEE 802.3 Ethernet standard, and was initially developed to support higher bandwidth data transmission over the installed base of Cat 5e twisted pair copper cable. The world’s largest technology companies – including Cisco, Intel, Xilinx, Altera and many more – are contributing to the standardization effort, demonstrating interoperability, and introducing products to the market. Pleora’s NBASE-T platform supports 1 Gb/s, 2.5 Gb/s, and 5 Gb/s throughputs over widely deployed Cat 5e copper cabling. The platform is also capable of throughputs of 10 Gb/s over Cat 6A copper cabling.
Pleora has provided a limited preview of its new platform with select manufacturers and end-users, who voiced a clear opportunity for the technology as bandwidth demands increase and the specialized cabling and the networking limitations of legacy frame grabbers pose cost, design, and performance concerns. With Pleora’s NBASE-T platform, manufacturers will meet increasing speed requirements while taking advantage of Ethernet’s less expensive, long-distance, field-terminated cabling, point-to-multipoint multicasting, and lower-cost networking components.
Pleora’s GigE Vision over NBASE-T Development Kit provides manufacturers with a straightforward approach to design NBASE-T imaging products, including cameras, scanners, and X-ray flat panel detectors. Imaging products developed with the kit will work seamlessly with GigE Vision-compliant hardware and software from Pleora and other vendors.
The development kit will be available in Q2/2016 with an embedded video interface, hardware reference design, and IP core package scheduled for release later in 2016.
