FPGA-based video/imaging solution

27 March 2019 Opto-Electronics

Microchip Technology released the new PolarFire FPGA imaging and video solution to address the challenges of developing complex computer algorithms which enable systems to capture and display information and high-resolution images. The solution delivers capabilities to support resolution as high as 4K in small, low-power form factors necessary for a wide variety of imaging and video applications.

The new imaging and video solution includes a complete ecosystem for customers, with comprehensive application-specific hardware, optimised intellectual property suite for image processing, sample reference designs, demonstration designs and collateral.

The video and imaging kit enables high-performance evaluation of 4K image processing and rendering using dual-camera sensors suitable for designing demonstrations for video stitching, static and dynamic object insertion, as well as real depth estimation based on disparity maps. With its modular intellectual property suite providing clients the ability to prototype and accelerate time to market, the kit can be leveraged for multiple projects.

The kit also includes industry-standard imaging interfaces bolstered by 4 GB on-chip DDR4 and 1 GB Flash memory for frame buffering and user configuration, respectively. It offers bidirectional MIPI as a sensor interface and the choice of HDMI, DSI for display and SDI for broadcast-grade video.

The kit also facilitates the evaluation of reference designs for picture-in-picture (PiP) and edge detection with configurable resolution and image signal parameters. These features enhance the solution’s suitability for applications including surveillance and IP cameras, automotive and other untethered/mobile use cases, machine vision/medical, smart home and others in the industrial, aerospace/aviation and defence markets.
