Machine Vision

The need for more flexible and scalable solutions for cutting edge industrial automation and robotics requires  real-time video analytics to move away from servers to smart cameras.  Traditional systems are comprised of large footprint servers and simple cameras resulting in increased power consumption and higher OPEX.  Zynq™-7000 All Programmable SoCs address the performance limitations created by multichip co-processing implementations that require on server-based analytics by enabling video analytics within the camera – along with image/video processing functions and sensor interfacing.

Solution Summary and Benefits

  • Single-chip machine vision platform for high frame rate applications (100fps+)
  • Increase system performance with hardware acceleration for video analytics such as object identification, comparison, counting, recognition
  • Highly integrated All Programmable SoC reduces latency and bottlenecks up to 200X by combining image/video processing, analytics, sensor interfacing and high-speed machine vision connectivity
  • Support for multiple machine vision connectivity  standards – GigE Vision, CoaXPress, CameraLink and more
  • Accelerate design productivity with a tightly integrated development tool flow using OpenCV, Vivado™ High-Level Synthesis, and IP Integrator
  • Reduce time to integration with SmartCore™ IP, specialized ecosystem IP and software, and operating systems
