MAX9296/MAX96792 Vehicle Frame Grabbers



In the rapidly evolving world of automotive electronics, the importance of high-speed data transmission and accurate image capturing cannot be overstated. Frame grabbers play a crucial role in capturing video frames from cameras and transferring them to storage or processing systems.


Among the deserializer boards utilized in the frame grabber industry, the MAX9296 and MAX96792 from Maxim Integrated stand out due to their advanced features and exceptional performance.


As the demand for advanced driver assistance and autonomous driving continues to grow, the MAX9296 and MAX96792 frame grabbers will undoubtedly play a crucial role in meeting these technological challenges.






Overview of MAX9296 and MAX96792


MAX9296


The MAX9296 is a GMSL2 (Gigabit Multimedia Serial Link) deserializer that is designed to work in tandem with a variety of automotive cameras. It is capable of receiving high-definition video data from cameras over long distances through a single coaxial cable or shielded twisted pair (STP) cable. Key features include:


High Data Rate: The MAX9296 supports data rates up to 6 Gbps, enabling the transmission of high-resolution video with minimal latency.

Multi-Camera Support: This deserializer can connect up to four cameras, making it suitable for advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) and autonomous driving applications.

Integrated Serializer Link: The MAX9296 features an integrated forward channel serializer link, which is used for camera control and bidirectional communication.

Built-in Diagnostics: The device includes comprehensive diagnostic features for cable integrity, signal quality, and fault detection, ensuring reliable operation in automotive environments.


MAX96792


The MAX96792 is a frame grabber designed to work seamlessly with the MAX9296 deserializer. It captures video frames from the deserializer and transfers them to the processing unit for further analysis. Key features of the MAX96792 include:


High-Speed Data Transfer: The MAX96792 supports PCIe (Peripheral Component Interconnect Express) interfaces, allowing for high-speed data transfer between the frame grabber and the processing unit.

Multi-Channel Support: Similar to the MAX9296, the MAX96792 can handle multiple video streams, making it ideal for applications requiring simultaneous capture from several cameras.

Low Power Consumption: Optimized for automotive applications, the MAX96792 is designed to consume minimal power, contributing to the overall energy efficiency of the vehicle's electronic systems.

Versatile Interface Options: The frame grabber offers various interface options, including MIPI CSI-2 and USB 3.0, providing flexibility in system design and integration.



Applications


Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS)


Both the MAX9296 and MAX96792 are integral components in ADAS, where they enable the seamless capture and processing of high-definition video from multiple cameras. This video data is crucial for functions such as lane departure warning, adaptive cruise control, and automatic emergency braking.


Autonomous Vehicles


In autonomous vehicles, the ability to capture and process video data from multiple cameras is essential for real-time decision-making and navigation. The high data rate and multi-camera support provided by the MAX9296 and MAX96792 ensure that the vehicle's vision system can operate effectively and reliably.


Surround-View Systems


Surround-view systems, which provide drivers with a 360-degree view of their vehicle's surroundings, rely on the accurate capture and processing of video data from multiple cameras. The MAX9296 and MAX96792 are well-suited for these systems due to their high data rate capabilities and multi-channel support.
