Smart Dense Detector Arrays
Agency / Branch:
DOD / ARMY
Crossfield Technology proposes a high-density multi-chip module (MCM) for smart dense detector arrays based on the Nvidia Tegra multi-core processor. The Tegra processor integrates an ARM-11 processor with a GeForce Graphics Processor Unit (GPU) to deliver 30 GFLOPS of computational performance for real-time image processing and video encoding. The ultra-low-power Tegra also integrates high-speed interfaces for up to 4 GB of main system memory, NAND flash memory for embedded firmware, a high-speed Camera Serial Interface (CSI), HDMI or LCD video outputs, and USB On-the-Go control and data port. Crossfield will also integrate a programmable interface supporting a variety of focal plane arrays, providing frame capture and data transport from the FPA to the Tegra processor through its high-speed CSI port. Crossfield proposes a rapid prototype development during the Phase I Program to develop a printed circuit board implementation of the proposed design to support software development during the Phase II Program and provide a development environment for users of the technology.
