Xilinx integrates machine vision design

Xilinx is using the HALCON and VisualApplets development platforms for Zynq machine vision applications.

HALCON software from MVTec for machine vision supports video analytics and includes a library of more than 1800 operators for blob analysis, morphology, matching, measuring, identification, and 3D vision.
VisualApplets from Silicon Software provides advanced image processing libraries and high-level design entry and simulation tools that enable users to quickly and efficiently program FPGA hardware for industrial image processing.

The collaboration of Xilinx with HALCON and VisualApplets creates an end-to-end vision development environment for Zynq that reduces design cycles and time to market, claims Xilinx.

The dual-core ARM Cortex-A9 MPCore processing system in the Zynq-7000 provides a software programming platform that runs application software and executes networking and management tasks, while the Xilinx 28nm programmable logic provides a hardware programming platform capable of real-time performance for image processing, filtering and scaling.
Placing image processing functions inside the FPGA fabric accelerates performance faster than a traditional software approach, says Xilinx.
