Embedded-vision applications present many design challenges and a new ElectronicsWeekly.com article written by Michaël Uyttersprot, a Technical Marketing Manager at Avnet Silica, and titled “Bringing embedded vision systems to market” discusses these challenges and solutions.

 

First, the article enumerates several design challenges including:

 

  • Meeting hi-res image-processing demands within cost, size, and power goals
  • Handling a variety of image-sensor types
  • Handling multiple image sensors in one camera
  • Real-time compensation (lens correction) for inexpensive lenses
  • Distortion correction, depth detection, dynamic range, and sharpness enhancement

 

 

Next, the article discusses Avnet Silica’s various design offerings that help engineers quickly develop embedded-vision designs. Products discussed include:

The Avnet PicoZed Embedded Vision Kit is based on the Xilinx Zynq SoC

 

 

 

If you’re about to develop any sort of embedded-vision design, it might be worth your while to read the short article and then connect with your friendly neighborhood Avnet or Avnet Silica rep.
