Have you ever wondered how you can speed up the process to get running your custom DSP module in hardware ASAP? Implementing even the simplest DSP in hardware using plain HDL is not very intuitive. Particularly, if you are not familiar with hardware design. Interfaces, synchronism and data types are some of the concepts that you have to take care of. Along with hardware design concepts (clocks, registers, flip-flops) and toolsets (Vivado, Vitis, HLS). It takes too much effort and then… you give up.
Embedded vision is a growing topic in today’s connected world. Many applications are moving away from using the cloud and big servers for processing. Among those are Artificial intelligence, image recognition, or video monitoring. As a result, it pushes image processing closer to the edge. Making small size, lightweight, and low-power consumption key factors to consider. Special purpose hardware is opening the door into
the world of the embedded vision.
