The AXIOM recorder software can record moving images from axiom cameras via either USB3 or Ethernet. Currently, that software is only a CLI tool that is difficult to use in the field and has severe accessibility hurdles for not technically inclined users. This project will develop an easy to use and performant GUI to ease the operation of the recorder.

1 Project Summary

nMigen is an HDL toolkit implemented in the Python programming language. By using nMigen instead of traditional HDLs like Verilog or VHDL, gateware can be developed in less time, with less bugs, and with extremely powerful abstractions that enable code clarity and conciseness. apertus° has already developed a prototype nMigen gateware for the AXIOM Micro camera, but wishes to extend it to support the sensor, FPGA, and HDMI interface of the AXIOM Beta. This work will develop in nMigen and demonstrate on real hardware an end-to-end imaging prototype for the AXIOM Beta: sensor control over SPI, sensor readout PHY from LVDS, pixel remapper based on existing implementation, 4K to Full HD downscaling debayerization, and final image output to HDMI.
