2D/3D Situational Awareness for Aerospace & Defense

Real-time situational awareness is critically important in today’s latest mobile military systems. Zynq®-7000 SoCs meet the high demands for such applications by allowing data capture and image processing which combine information streams from multiple sensors and cameras with resolutions of 2048 x 2048 at 30+ frames per second to construct and display 360 degree view of the surrounding environment.

2D and 3D imaging as well as 360 degree surround view are enabled by Xilinx SmartCORE™ IP for Zynq-7000 SoCs, with support for real-time image/video interfacing, capture, pre-processing, analytics, display, and networking functionalities, all in a single-device. This allows designers to compress current architectures from multi-chip and multi-board solutions into single device and single board solutions that meet rigorous performance and SWaP-C requirements.

Solution Summary and Benefits

  • Single-chip 360 degree 2D/3D surround view for situation awareness
  • Highly integrated, feature-rich SoC with dynamic reconfiguration enables lowest cost solution –  reduced chip count vs. ASSP solutions and lower TCO vs. of ASIC co-processing solutions
  • Highest  system performance with optimal HW/SW partitioning – dual-core ARM® Cortex™-A9 processor runs application software while programmable logic performs hardware acceleration for computationally-intensive, high-performance functions including: object detection, recognition, tracking and classification
  • Accelerate design productivity with a tightly integrated development tool flow, SmartCore IP, libraries, specialized ecosystem IP and software, and operating systems
  • Greater differentiation through inherent flexibility of programmable fabric and proprietary IP ownership
