Vision Components Camera with FPGA module
The Z camera series is equipped with a Zync SoC module from Xilinx, which allows users to take advantage of FPGA module features for image processing tasks. These compact cameras feature low power consumption and are suitable for high-speed applications with limited installation space. Optimized FPGA programming for image processing routines can enable systems to execute 20 times faster. This performance boost is made possible by relocating selected features from the ARM processor to the FPGA module. Captured image data is pre-processed by the FPGA module while still on its way to the memory.
