SAN JOSE, Calif., Nov. 29, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Xilinx, Inc. (NASDAQ:XLNX) today launched the Embedded Vision Developer Zone for software, hardware, and system developers to accelerate their productivity and build All Programmable, differentiated Embedded Vision applications. Through the Embedded Vision Developer Zone, Xilinx is providing a one-stop location to jump start the development of next-generation vision systems employing sensor fusion, advanced computer vision algorithms, and real-time object detection and analytics capabilities based on machine learning techniques.
Central to the Embedded Vision Developer Zone is a pool of engineering resources comprised of optimized libraries for software development, vision IP for hardware developers, projects, and tutorials from Xilinx, Alliance Program Members, and community developers. All development resources are compatible with Xilinx FPGAs and All Programmable SoCs, including Zynq® UltraScale+™ MPSoCs combining four ARM® Cortex™-A53 APUs, two ARM Cortex-R5 Real time Processors, an ARM Mali™-400 MP2 GPU, an HEVC Video Codec supporting 4Kp60 resolution, programmable logic, and programmable interfaces.
"Product developers are embracing embedded vision at an accelerating pace. From smart surveillance cameras to autonomous vehicles, just about everything, everywhere needs to 'see' something," said Jeff Bier, founder of the Embedded Vision Alliance. "Squeezing vision into tight cost and power budgets presents unique challenges to embedded vision developers. Providing them with a dedicated place to find a wide range of resources relevant to their applications is an important step in enabling more developers to meet these challenges."
Xilinx is the leading provider of All Programmable FPGAs, SoCs, MPSoCs, and 3D ICs. Xilinx uniquely enables applications that are both software defined and hardware optimized – powering industry advancements in Cloud Computing, 5G Wireless, Embedded Vision and Industrial IoT.
