Project Summary Project Information

The goal of this project was to design and develop a tethered, miniaturized camera system capable of capturing and transmitting HD video or 14MP image data, while being highly resistant to adverse environments.

The team has taken their findings from preliminary interface research and decided to implement a serial data transmission protocol, CoaXPress, that sends data at high-speeds over coaxial cable. The standard allows downlink speeds up to 6.25 Gbps, an uplink channel at 20 Mbps for camera control, and power over the cable. The packaging, serializing, and high-speed transmission of the data is facilitated by an FPGA, namely an Altera Cyclone IV GX. Four separate circuit boards were designed in support of the FPGA, 14MP image sensor, and the CoaXPress physical layer. The enclosure supports a variety of lenses, has a rugged structure, and resists weather conditions while dissipating the heat created by the internal electronics.
