Pleora iPORT NTx-U3 (NTxU3) Embedded Video Interface

Quick Overview

Rapidly add high-performance USB3 Vision connectivity to systems and cameras.

Pleora’s iPORT™ NTx-U3 Embedded Video Interface hardware provides system and camera manufacturers with a straightforward way to integrate USB 3.0 video connectivity into their products. With the NTx-U3 Embedded Video Interface, manufacturers can shorten time-to-market, reduce development and deployment risk, and lower design and system costs. For manufacturers requiring deeper levels of integration, Pleora’s NTx-U3 is also available as an Intellectual Property (IP) package that includes an FPGA IP core and a hardware reference design, complete with expert design review services.

Pleora's NTx-U3 Embedded Video Interface interacts seamlessly with Pleora's other products in networked or point-to-point digital video systems. It also complies fully with the USB3 Vision™ and GenICam® standards, ensuring interoperability with third-party equipment in a multi-vendor environment. The embedded hardware converts video data to packets at throughputs up to 3 Gb/s. The packetized video is then sent with low, consistent latency over a USB 3.0 link to receiving software. To speed time-to-market, Pleora offers an evaluation kit for the NTx-U3 Embedded Video Interface. This kit allows manufacturers to produce system or camera prototypes and proof-of-concept demonstrations easily and rapidly, often without undertaking hardware development.
