Xylon announced the availability of a powerful new development kit for building multi-camera embedded vision systems based on Xilinx All Programmable devices. Built around the Xilinx Zynq-7000 AP SoC, the new development kit enables system integrators and designers to get started quickly on their embedded vision designs for AD/ADAS, machine vision, AR/VR, guided robotics, drones and other vision applications.
The hardware contained within the kit includes the Xilinx ZC706 Evaluation Kit (OEM version), Xylon FMC board for six camera connections, Avnet HDMI Input/Output FMC board, four Xylon 1-Mpix HDR video cameras, cables and the power supply.
Kit deliverables include the complete and licensed logADAK-VDF Video Design Framework with pre-verified reference designs for video capture and display output under the Linux operating system. The complete camera-to-display SoC designs, which are implemented by Xylon logicBRICKS IP cores, use just a fraction of available programmable logic and significantly save the design time and efforts. Instead of starting from scratch and having to spend months designing and building a new design framework, the logiVID-Z users can immediately focus on the specific vision processing and add it in the pre-built SoC infrastructure.
The logicBRICKS reference designs are prepared for the Xilinx Vivado Design Suite and the SDSoC™ Development Environment. To provide the Xilinx SDSoC users the complete embedded C/C++ development experience and to demonstrate how to implement custom vision processing logic in software or in programmable logic, the supplied reference designs include the Sobel video processing example.
