Lattice Semiconductor Corp (NASDAQ:LSCC) and HelionVision® reported the latest solution to advace embedded vision design and prototyping. The free assessment version of Helion’s pre-packaged IONOS™ ISP options for company’s Embedded Vision Development Kit supports the IP selection procedure, accelerates time-to-market and reduces development time. This collaboration results in a complete software and hardware solution for embedded vision apps in Industry 4.0 applications, automotive, AR, intelligent cameras, robotics and drones for smart cities.
The long-term association between Helion and Lattice focuses on creating offerings depending on years of accumulated consumer engagements. Lattice’s development kit brings CrossLink™ video bridging FPGA, high-resolution HDMI® ASSP and ECP5™ processing FPGA into a single, modular platform, together with Helion’s pre-packaged ISP alternatives. This complete offering simplifies the advancement of latest applications at the edge.
Dr.-Ing. Arndt Bußmann, the CTO at Helion Vision, reported that with its new Embedded Vision Kit, Lattice is resolving the requirement for simplicity and rapid development of connectivity solutions in a growing intelligent systems industry. Their design services and ISP solutions are ideal for tailored camera systems, complete display and camera systems, and imaging modules. They look forward to continuing their work with Lattice to create upon future intelligent edge systems.
Major features of Helion’s ISP cores comprise four ready-to-integrate ISP alternatives fluctuating from entry level ECO HD-ISP to the top-performance HDR HD-ISP offering Full HD and High Dynamic Range. Each ISP comes as sensor independent, and its latest bus architecture warrants that each IP core is completely user configurable.
Dirk Seidel, who is the Senior Marketing Manager at Lattice, expressed that their Embedded Vision Development Kit supports system design through simplified testing and rapid prototyping. It is ideal for numerous applications such as medical, machine vision, augmented reality, needed in Industry 4.0, surround intelligent traffic cameras and view cameras in smart cities and smart automotive segment, respectively.
