Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) Design
Developed and refined over the last three decades, PSEL have strong in-house capabilities and facilities to develop our own FPGA (Field Programmable Gate Array) firmware designs for camera control, data acquisition and image processing. We make use of both schematic capture and VHDL methodology to design, test and implement complex control and image processing algorithms.
In addition, tasks not requiring dedicated FPGA hardware, such as serial communication, are implemented using embedded processors also integrated within the FPGA design. Code is then developed for these processors using an embedded C environment.
