Vision Stuttgart 2014: Xilinx to Highlight All Programmable Embedded Solutions for Machine Vision Applications

Xilinx, Inc. will demonstrate All Programmable embedded solutions for machine vision applications at Vision Stuttgart 2014. Through a series of demonstrations and presentations, Xilinx with their customers and ecosystem, will highlight the performance and flexibility of the Zynq All Programmable SoC in vision applications.

The Zynq devices are chosen by camera manufactures and vision systems designers to implement real-time image processing and analysis and leverage the ARM dual Cortex A9 core to achieve faster scan times and higher accuracy rates. Xilinx will also exhibit the Smart Vision Development Kit that includes all key machine vision interfaces such as GigEVision, CoaXPress and USB3Vision in a single platform. Visit the Xilinx Stand #1C91 at Stuttgart Vision 2014, November 4-6, at Messe Stuttgart.


Xilinx and Ecosystem Demonstrations - Stand #1C91

*Pattern Matching/Bar Code Readers Performance Comparison - Presented by Vision Components

Demonstration will showcase two identical bar code reader systems that display how the Zynq All Programmable SoC can increase the scanning performance and reduce the processing times.

* Real-Time Optical Character Recognition - Presented by MVTec and Sensor to Image

Demonstration will allow visitors to write on paper and see how the Zynq All Programmable SoC performs instantaneous Optical Character Recognition (OCR) to translate into machine readable characters. The embedded HALCON Machine Vision Software runs the Smart Vision Development Kit based on Zynq-7015 device.

*Accelerated Vision Development Using Embedded Visual Applets - Presented by Silicon Software

Demonstration will display how a user can create a video pipeline without writing a single line of HDL but using a graphic approach of embedding the Visual Applets Tool from Silicon Software. This user friendly tool targets the Zynq All Programmable SoC and allows users to construct a vision pipeline inside the FPGA by leveraging the 200+ video processing libraries available. Designers can now build a camera processing system with hardware acceleration with minimum efforts and no FPGA expertise.

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots is a result of many years of intensive research in robotics. The product portfolio includes the UR5 and UR10 models that handle payloads of up to 11.3 lbs. and 22.6 lbs. respectively. The six-axis robot arms weigh as little as 40 lbs. with reach capabilities of up to 51 inches. Repeatability of +/- .004" allows quick precision handling of even microscopically small parts. After initial risk assessment, the collaborative Universal Robots can operate alongside human operators without cumbersome and expensive safety guarding. This makes it simple and easy to move the light-weight robot around the production, addressing the needs of agile manufacturing even within small- and medium sized companies regarding automation as costly and complex. If the robots come into contact with an employee, the built-in force control limits the forces at contact, adhering to the current safety requirements on force and torque limitations. Intuitively programmed by non-technical users, the robot arms go from box to operation in less than an hour, and typically pay for themselves within 195 days. Since the first UR robot entered the market in 2009, the company has seen substantial growth with the robotic arms now being sold in more than 50 countries worldwide.
