Blackfin Embedded Vision Starter Kit Hands-on Workshop

On Thursday October 3rd, 2013 from 8:30AM-1:30PM (including optional one-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.

From object detection and object recognition to real-time video analytics, this hands-on workshop provided attendees with an in-depth tutorial on the basics of designing embedded systems that incorporate computer vision techniques. Taught by embedded vision experts from BDTI, Analog Devices and Avnet, this hands-on workshop utilized the Avnet Embedded Vision Starter kit to explore a variety of topics ranging from embedded vision algorithms to software implementation and hardware acceleration.

This workshop is now concluded.

Zynq-7000/Vivado Smarter Vision Hands-On Workshop

On Thursday October 3rd, 2013 from 1:00PM-5:00PM, Embedded Vision 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.

The workshop introduced attendees to the Xilinx Smarter Vision offering, featuring the Zynq-7000 All Programmable SoC, complemented with Vivado, a robust development environment consisting of IP Integrator and Vivado HLS (High-Level Synthesis), Open CV libraries, SmartCORE IP and video development kits. The hands-on labs used a camera design, implemented with Vivado IP Integrator and SmartCORE IP cores. The student was guided on how to move a software OpenCV algorithm to hardware using Vivado High-Level Synthesis and included video libraries.

This workshop is now concluded
