Avnet Silica Expands PicoZed SOM Portfolio with New Embedded Vision Carrier Card

(PresseBox) (Poing, ) Avnet Silica, an Avnet, Inc. (NYSE: AVT) company, today announces the availability of the PicoZed™ Embedded Vision kit designed to help engineers more quickly and efficiently develop custom video applications including video analytics, machine vision, medical imaging, video surveillance and advanced driver assistance systems. The kit builds on the highly flexible and rugged PicoZed SOM, adding a video-specific carrier card and camera connector for add-on camera modules supported by the PYTHON 1300 CMOS image sensor from ON Semiconductor.

The PicoZed Embedded Vision kit combines the hardware, software and IP components necessary for the development of custom video applications for markets including industrial, medical, automotive, consumer, aerospace/defense and security. The kit also includes a voucher for an SDSoCTM development environment from Xilinx, which provides a C/C++ ASSP-like programming experience to improve productivity for application development, system architecture definition and platform creation. SDSoC accelerates development with Xilinx Zynq® SoCs and MPSoCs by eliminating the churn between hardware and software teams implementing programmable logic-based software accelerators, thereby enabling designers to leverage Xilinx, third-party or end-user platforms.
