1080p60 HD Medical Endoscope

Advances in preventive medicine and minimally invasive surgery are driving the need for enhancements in endoscope systems. Traditional multichip implementations introduce latency issues counter-productive to the high-bandwidth, computationally intensive functions required in modern endoscopy.  Zynq®-7000 SoCs integrate camera unit control and 1080p60 image processing into  a single device, while also enabling hardware acceleration of complex video analytics for automating diagnostics.

Solution Summary and Benefits

  • 1080p60 HD video with CCD or CMOS color formation for life-like image capture and display
  • Increase system performance with hardware acceleration for video analytics such as lens distortion correction, low latency rotation, point of view translation, object identification, comparison, counting, recognition, positioning and measurement
  • Single-chip system processor and image processing to reduce BOM cost and power consumption
  • Optimal hardware/software partitioning reduces latency and bottlenecks by combining image/video processing, analytics and camera control into a single device
  • Support for multiple connectivity  standards – SDI, SATA, USB, HDMI, Ethernet and more
  • 1080p60 video encoder for network-based video transfer
  • 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
