The Chameleon96™-Vision is based on NovTech’s Cyclone V SoC 96Boards. The Vision add-on board features an 5MP LVDS interface industrial camera with an ambient light sensor and ‘mobile phone’ type 3X accelerometer. The -3X version features a high-end 3X accelerometer and 3X gyroscope (only with the -3X version). The Chameleon96™ meets all 96Boards mandatory specifications (excluding MIPI SDI Interface) and most optional specifications. The Chameleon96™ features Dual ARM Cortex-A9 processors, an FPGA fabric, and a set of peripherals that allow direct interfacing and connecting to MMC/SD card, HDMI out, USB, WLAN/BLE, I2Cs, UARTs, SPIs and GPIOs.
