Re: March 21 - Day FOUR: When to Use FPGAs to Accelerate Embedded Vision Applications
Daniel Wilding   3/21/2013 1:38:07 PM


I am interested in FPGA development kits for embedded vision and I would like to know the criteria by which the selection should be made to choose FPGA based dev. kit. I do not have any experience with embedded vision. Could you provide some references - dev kits, books etc?

Both Xilinx and Altera (together, they control 80% of the FPGA market) have really good vision development kits for FPGA.

However, if you're new to embedded vision, I'd recommend just playing on your CPU, or get a cheap microprocessor-based kit.  

As far as guidance on choosing an FPGA dev kit:  it kind of depends on what you care about.  You may not know that 'til you've experimented a bit.  Buying something cheap and playing around with it can teach you a lot.
