To solve imaging or machine vision challenges exposing graphic memory to any device has always been the goal for applications looking to have low latency communication of data between any device and the GPU. Using AMD’s DirectGMA, the Coaxlink cards from Euresys can now directly transfer image data to GPU memory.
Paolo Bai, Line Manager Euresys at global imaging expert and distributor FRAMOS, explains: “DirectGMA eliminates unnecessary system memory copies, dramatically lowers CPU overhead, and reduces latency, resulting in significant performance improvements in data transfer times for applications using the AMD FireProTM W5x00 and above and for all AMD FireProTM S series products.”
DirectGMA compatibility is available from Coaxlink Driver revision 4.5. A sample program showing how to use this feature is available in the installation package. With a deep knowledge from sensor to system the FRAMOS industry and product experts provide additional services like development support, engineering and logistics to support customers for their specific applications and projects.
