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.

ST Robotics - r12 robot arm

ST Robotics - r12 robot arm

ST Robotics have decades of experience in industrial robots having sold hundreds of robots over the years. The company has 3 main models, R12, R17 and R19 all using a unique simple industrial technology that dramatically reduces costs resulting in the lowest priced industrial robots available. The same uncomplicated technology vastly improves reliability. ST backs this up with a 2 year warranty. Typical applications are routine testing, sample handling and also education. The software is a different paradigm from most robots. It is command based; you type a command and see immediate action. Programming is a building block approach, building confidence as you program in small 'mind-sized bytes'. ST offers free unlimited technical support.
