Multifunction Printers (MFPs)

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 they require support for a number of interface standards like USB 3.0, SATA, and 10Gb Ethernet.

Zynq®-7000 SoCs  enable consolidation of multiple functions such as printer head motor control, image processing and compression, user interface, and storage and network interfacing, dramatically reducing chip and PCB count.  The Xilinx high performance SoCs and solutions meet these industry requirements, as well as 100ppm, 2400x2400 dpi, scanning at 200 images per minute (ipm).

Xilinx Smarter Solutions include the FPGAs and SoCs in addition to a suite of SmartCORE and LogiCORE™ IP that can be customized to optimally address your unique market requirements. Xilinx Vivado Design Suite with its tightly integrated development tool flow using OpenCV libraries, Vivado High-Level Synthesis, and IP Integrator provide a faster, more flexible means to go to market with greatest differentiation, lower risk and cost of ownership than alternative ASIC and ASSP based solutions.

The diagram below demonstrates an example of Single-chip integration of image processing  and motor control functions, enabling significant BOM cost and power consumption reductions.
