Thank you for checking in with us again! Today, we are exploring the first class in our Applications Track: Designing High Pixel-Rate Video Systems with Xilinx FPGAs. If you are unfamiliar with the Applications Track, do not worry! Before continuing on, you have the option of referring back to our previous post for a general overview of the topics and goals that will be discussed as we plunge into our profile of the individual courses.
Currently, video systems are a family of technology that is advancing at an astonishingly high rate. This is exemplified by our rapid shift from projection TV’s and monitors to flat panels, LED, and even 3D TV’s in the last couple of years. With consumers constantly demanding higher resolutions, faster frame rates, and more advanced image processing and analytics, the need for FPGA-based solutions continues to expand.
This class focuses on the techniques and IP involved in designing systems using high frame rate, multi-gigabit pixel-rate cameras with the latest generation Xilinx 7 Series and Zynq™-7000 family of FPGAs. From image capture using the FPGA’s flexible I/O, to the image processing pipeline and video frame buffer using the Xilinx Video IP, this class provides a comprehensive overview of creating video systems with the newest Xilinx devices, tool s, and IP portfolio.
