Valens HDBaseT Camera Reference Design

Valens Semiconductor introduced a HDBaseT camera reference design solution. The LatticeECP3 FPGA device can be used for multiplexing the video streams and formatting the data to the Valens HDBaseT Tx driver. The LatticeECP3 FPGA device has the necessary memory blocks, FPGA logic, SERDES and configurable I/O to implement a variety of applications. The LatticeECP3 FPGA gives manufacturers the flexibility to adapt and format interfaces to leverage the Valens HDBaseT bandwidth capability.
