The October 2013 Embedded Vision Summit East
Engineers: Learn to Design Machines That See!
On Wednesday, October 2, 2013 at the Westford Regency Inn and Conference Center in Westford, Massachusetts, in the Boston, Massachusetts area, the Embedded Vision Alliance hosted the Embedded Vision Summit East, a technical educational forum for engineers interested in incorporating visual intelligence into electronic systems and software.
For more information about the Embedded Vision Summit, please see below.
The October 2013 Embedded Vision Summit East is now concluded.
On Thursday October 3rd, 2013 from 8:30AM-1:30PM (including optional 1-hour complimentary lunch), Embedded Vision Alliance members Analog Devices, Avnet Electronics Marketing and BDTI co-presented a workshop exploring hardware and software for image processing and video analytics, featuring the Avnet/Analog Devices Embedded Vision Starter Kit. This workshop was an excellent starting point for vision application developers interested in exploring a wide range of embedded vision applications.
That same day, from 1:00PM-5:00PM, Alliance members Avnet Electronics Marketing and Xilinx co-presented a workshop introducing SoC application development with a specific focus on embedded vision using the Xilinx Vivado Design Suite to target the Xilinx Zynq-7000 All Programmable SoC. An OpenCV example was used to demonstrate how a software implementation of an embedded vision application can be accelerated by building a custom hardware accelerator on the Zynq SoC’s programmable fabric, achieving 1080P60 at 1W power consumption.
Both workshops are now concluded. For more information on both workshops, please see the October 2013 Embedded Vision Summit East Workshops page.

A Great Event for System, Software and Chip Design Engineers
The Embedded Vision Summit provides a technical educational forum for engineers, including how-to presentations, seminars, demonstrations, and opportunities to interact with Alliance member companies. This event is intended to:
- Inspire engineers' imaginations about the potential applications for embedded vision technology through exciting presentations and demonstrations.
- Offer practical know-how for engineers to help you incorporate vision capabilities into your products.
- Provide opportunities for engineers to meet and talk with leading embedded vision technology companies and learn about their offerings.

Press and Analysts Welcome
For business and technology publication editors, market researchers, and financial analysts, the Summit provides unique insights into the business and technology drivers behind the rapid proliferation of embedded vision – “machines that see” – in virtually every category of electronic products, from automobiles to consumer electronics to health care. The Summit will provide a concentrated opportunity to hear from and interact with embedded vision leaders from industry and academia, and will culminate in a series of live demonstrations of new embedded vision products and technologies.
Alliance Membership and Summit Sponsorship
Founded in 2011 and led by BDTI, the Alliance is an industry collaboration to transform the electronics industry with products that are more intelligent and aware of their environments. It is a membership-based entity dedicated to inspiring and empowering embedded system designers to use embedded vision technology. A key means of achieving this is providing design engineers with the practical information that they need in order to effectively incorporate embedded vision technology in their designs.
The Embedded Vision Summit is an Alliance Member-funded event which enables Alliance Member companies to highlight their leadership in embedded vision and capture the attention of design engineers, press and analysts interested in embedded vision. The Alliance offers sponsorship and other marketing opportunities to companies leading the embedded vision revolution.
The following Embedded Vision Alliance member companies offered product demonstrations during the morning and afternoon breaks, at lunch, and during the evening reception:
- Analog Devices
- Inrevium by Tokyo Electron Device
- Texas Instruments
