Macnica ATD Europe announces release of Macnica SLVS-EC Rx IP

• IP versions for both Intel and Xilinx devices

• Evaluation Kit Xilinx Kintex UltraScale+ FPGA KCU116 and Macnica

EasyMVC IMX420 can be loaned through Macnica ATD Europe

Chatou/France, 29 October 2020. Macnica ATD Europe today announced that its

parent company Macnica Inc. now offers Macnica SLVS-EC IP versions for both Intel

and Xilinx devices. SLVS-EC is a high-speed interface defined by Sony for highresolution/

high-frame-rate CMOS image sensors. The standard is tolerant of lane-tolane

skew because of embedded clock technology, so that it makes a board level

design very easy in terms of high-speed and long distance transmission. The

Macnica SLVS-EC Rx IP is an intellectual property toolkit that highly facilitates boardlevel

design for SLVS-EC.

The INTEL device families that are supported by Macnica SLVS-EC

IP include

Cyclone V GX; Cyclone 10 GX; and Arria 10 GX. In the XILINX world the supported

FPGA families include Artix-7; Kintex-7; Kintex Ultrascale and Kintex Ultrascale+.

The devices are compliant with the SLVS-EC specification versions 1.2 and 2.0. A

particularly remarkable feature supported by Macnica’s IP is the Error Correction

Feature (ECC Option-1) which allows maintaining good image quality even under

severe conditions and unexpected data corruption. As supported features may differ

Founded in 1990 as ATD Electronique, Macnica ATD Europe offers innovative

components dedicated to imaging applications for the European market. Its product

portfolio includes: image sensors (CCD, CMOS, InGaAs, Thermal etc.), optics,

interface circuits, IPs, imaging processors, cables and OLED microdisplays. It also

covers development tools and design services enabling fast and efficient realization

of new high-performance camera systems for markets such as machine vision,

medical, life sciences, surveillance, automotive and others. After the acquisition of

the company by Macnica Inc. as of October 1, 2020 the company operates under

the name Macnica ATD Europe.

Macnica hardware demo environment

Customers can benefit from the extensive demo environment provided by the

Versatile Machine Vision Camera Development Kit EasyMVC from Macnica. For

Macnica SLVS-EC IP demos running on Xilinx devices the Macnica IMX420 FMC kit

combined with the Xilinx Development kits AC701; KC705; KCU105; KCU116 can be

tested. The choice of EasyMVC combinations for INTEL demos includes the sensor

boards IMX420/421 or IMX530 together with the FPGA board Cyclone 10GX

combined with an interface board which supports HDMI; CoaxPress; USB3; 10Gige

or other. In addition, Macnica currently also considers porting SLVS-EC IP and

CoaXPress IP to Microsemi PolarFire, a low power consumption device which would

make an EasyMVC PolarFire version attractive to machine vision customers.

Evaluation kits can be loaned through Macnica ATD Europe

For both the Intel and Xilinx version a free evaluation license can be requested for a

three month test period. In addition, Macnica ATD Europe provides a Xilinx

Evaluation Kit Kintex UltraScale+ FPGA KCU116 to customers as well as a Macnica

EasyMVC IMX420 development kit which both can be loaned free of charge.
