Re: March 21 - Day FOUR: When to Use FPGAs to Accelerate Embedded Vision Applications
Daniel Wilding   3/21/2013 2:48:57 PM




Daniel, do you use Xilinx? What do you think of the tools with regards to using their IP for imager interfacing and image processing?


I've used both Altera and Xilinx FPGAs.  There are lots of other smaller players in the FPGA market (Lattice, Actel, Acronix, for example) as well.  I've never actually used Xilinx or Altera image processing IP, but my overall feel is that they are close to equivalent -- they tend to be building blocks for creating an FPGA-based video-conferencing system.  As I mentioned in class, vision applications tend to be really varied and interesting and exciting -- it's tough to define a common set of blocks for what you want to do.
