Last November, I wrote about the new partnership with Altera and Eutecus that uses parallel algorithms and specialized co-processors integrated into a Cyclone IV FPGA for video surveillance. This launch targets high-performance, real-time machine vision applications and the system combines a FPGA hardware-processing platform with an Acquisition Control Unit (ACU), Data Transfer Engine (DTE), Image Processing Unit (IPU) and a state-of-the-memory architecture.
FPGA Processing Platform for Machine Vision
Trends come and go, but the Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) trend is alive and well with vision-related products. Dalsa announces a next generation, real-time FPGA processing platform that includes the Xcelera-CL VX 4 vision processor and Sapera APF development environment.
