As electronic media becomes more prominent Multifunction Printers (MFPs) are evolving in to highly networked sophisticated systems with integrated displays, real-time image analytics (OCR), fine motor control  and require support for a number of interface standards like USB 3.0, SATA, and 10Gb Ethernet.

Typical MFP architectures rely heavily on ASICs or ASSPs with standalone processors across many PCBs to perform standard functions – printer head motor control, image processing and compression, user interface, and storage and network interface. Zynq®-7000 All Programmable SoCs  enable consolidation of multiple functions, drastically reducing chip and PCB count.

Solution Summary and Benefits

  • High performance with All Programmable SoCs to meet industry requirements of 100ppm, 2400x2400 dpi, scanning at 200 images per minute (ipm)
  • Single-chip integration of image processing  and motor control functions enabling significant BOM cost and power consumption reductions
  • Accelerate design productivity with a tightly integrated development tool flow using OpenCV and Qt libraries, Vivado® High-Level Synthesis and IP Integrator
  • Reduce time to integration with SmartCore™ IP, specialized ecosystem IP and software, and operating systems
