PHOENIX — Avnet Electronics Marketing, an operating group of Avnet, Inc. (NYSE: AVT) today released a new MicroZed™ Embedded Vision Carrier Card kit to help engineers more quickly and efficiently deploy solutions incorporating the versatile and low-cost MicroZed™ System-on-Module (SOM). The kit builds on the MicroZed SOM by providing a video-specific carrier card, with camera connector, for optional camera modules featuring image sensors from ON Semiconductor Corp. and Toshiba America Electronic Components, Inc. (TAEC). Two versions of the kit are now available: the MicroZed™ Embedded Vision Carrier Card Kit, without a MicroZed SOM, for users who already have a MicroZed SOM; and the MicroZed™ Embedded Vision Development Kit, including a MicroZed 7020 SOM and voucher for the Vivado® Design Edition design suite, device-locked to the Zynq 7020.
Both the Carrier Card kit and full development kit include the hardware, software and IP components necessary for the development of custom video applications including video analytics, machine vision, medical imaging, video surveillance and advanced driver assistance systems. Optional add-on camera modules supported by the kit include ON Semiconductor’s new PYTHON image sensor family and Toshiba America Electronic Components, Inc. (TAEC) TCM3232PB full HD (1080p high-definition) image sensor. A camera design guide will also be included to help customers develop their own camera modules.
In addition, Xylon, a premier Xilinx IP provider, will make several reference designs available for the MicroZed Embedded Vision Carrier Card, including an advanced image processing solution (ISP) and face analytics.
