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. The 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.
