Explore Xilinx’s reVISION™ Stack using See3CAM_CU30 on Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC ZCU102 Evaluation Kit

Published on August 10, 2017

Machine learning and deep learning have gained attention from the development community as a technique that provides enhanced intelligence to many vision based applications (Autonomous cars, field drones, surveillance cameras) including Embedded Vision. Xilinx designed the stack to enable a much broader set of software and systems engineers, with little or no hardware design expertise to develop, intelligent vision guided systems easier and faster.

Xilinx’s reVISION™ Stack removes traditional design barriers by allowing you to quickly take a trained network and deploy it on Zynq SoCs and MPSoCs for inference.

What is Xilinx reVISION™ Stack?

The Xilinx reVISION™ stack includes a broad range of development resources for platform, algorithm and application development.

The below figure shows a block diagram of the ZCU102 reVISION™ architecture:

  • Video sources (or capture pipelines) are highlighted in blue color
  • Computer vision accelerators implemented as memory-to-memory (m2m) pipelines in red color
  • Video sinks (or output/display pipelines) in green color

The ZCU102 reVISION™ platform supports following three interfaces using which we can feed in the live vision data

  • USB2/3
  • HDMI Rx
  • MIPI CSI

Why See3CAM_CU30 on Xilinx reVISION™ Stack?

Xilinx has showcased their reVISION™ algorithms capabilities by using the Dense Optical Flow application. For Dense Optical flow algorithm they need high performance data like 1920*1080 @ 60 FPS uncompressed. For that they had chosen our USB 3.0 UVC camera( See3CAM_CU30 ) which can output 1920*1080 @ 60 FPS in uncompressed UYVY data.

Xilinx also included the design example which uses e-con’s See3CAM_CU30 camera for the Dense Optical flow application evaluation. With our camera the users get the advantage of evaluating the existing design examples on the Xilinx ZCU102 platform.

About See3CAM_CU30

See3CAM_CU30 is an ultra-low light USB 3.0 camera based on 1/3 inch, AR0330 CMOS image sensor from On semiconductor. It is an UVC compliant camera it doesn’t require any special drivers to be installed. It supports 1080p @ 60fps in uncompressed UYVY format and it has an integrated high-performance Image Signal Processor (ISP) that performs all the Auto functions (Auto White Balance, Auto Exposure control). The ISP and sensor settings have been fine tuned to generate best-in-class video in both uncompressed UYVY and Compressed MJPEG.
