Michael Melle, Sales Development Manager at Allied Vision, and Felix Nikolaus, Firmware Designer at Allied Vision, presents the "A Multi-purpose Vision Processor for Embedded Systems" tutorial at the May 2017 Embedded Vision Summit.
This presentation gives an overview of an innovative vision processor that delivers the superior image quality of industrial cameras while enabling the embedded vision system designer to meet the cost, size and power requirements of embedded vision applications. In addition to delivering superior image quality, the processor functions as a sensor bridge, an ISP and signal transmitter for downstream processing.
The processor facilitates the transformation of industrial cameras, which are equipped with more expensive and larger commercial processors, to embedded applications that require smaller form factors, lower power and advanced image processing. Through an extensive library of pre-processing and image processing functions, designers can shift more image processing to the camera, reducing the demands on data transfer and host processing. The processor accepts inputs from most image sensors on the market and can process high data rates and image resolutions.
