Xilinx launches new Embedded Vision Developer Zone for software, hardware, and system developers aimed at accelerating productivity and build All Programmable, differentiated Embedded Vision applications.
Through this new innovative zone, the company touts to provide one-stop location to jump start the development of next-generation vision systems employing sensor fusion, advanced computer vision algorithms, and real-time object detection and analytics capabilities based on machine learning techniques.
At the core is a pool of engineering resources comprised of optimized libraries for software development, vision IP for hardware developers, projects, and tutorials from Xilinx, Alliance Program Members, and community developers.
All development resources are compatible with Xilinx FPGAs and All Programmable SoCs, including Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoCs combining four ARM Cortex-A53 APUs, two ARM Cortex-R5 Real time Processors, an ARM Mali-400 MP2 GPU, an HEVC Video Codec supporting 4Kp60 resolution, programmable logic, and programmable interfaces.
“Product developers are embracing embedded vision at an accelerating pace. From smart surveillance cameras to autonomous vehicles, just about everything, everywhere needs to ‘see’ something,” said Jeff Bier, founder of the Embedded Vision Alliance. “Squeezing vision into tight cost and power budgets presents unique challenges to embedded vision developers. Providing them with a dedicated place to find a wide range of resources relevant to their applications is an important step in enabling more developers to meet these challenges.”
