Digilent’s new ZedBoard advanced image processing kit, starting at $669, is an affordable solution for embedded vision system development. The base kit features a ZedBoard with a Zynq®-7000 SoC Z7020-CLG484 device, dual-cam Pcam 5C, and a Pcam adapter. Each 5C Pcam module is a 5MP color image sensor, with configurable image processing functions. Upgrade to a quad-cam Pcam 5C for an additional $50.



Full list of included components:


Developers can take advantage of the Zynq-7000 SoC’s integrated Arm® processing system and programmable logic to create unique and powerful designs. Additionally, Xilinx libraries feature hardware-accelerated image signal processing and video processing functions as below:

Image capture and display

  • MIPI CSI receive
  • MIPI DSI transmit

Video and image processing

  • Demosaic
  • Gamma_LUT
  • Video processing subsystem (for scaling, deinterlacing, color space conversion, and chroma resampling)
  • Frame buffer read and write (video frame buffers)
  • Video test pattern generator
  • AXI infrastructure components to make it easy to build video pipes
  • OpenCV vision functions through XfopenCV library
  • Audio functions for capture (I2S, SPDIF)
