Xilinx released version 2.1 of their Real-Time Video Engine. RTVE runs on the OZ745 Zynq-7045 All Programmable system-on-a-chip (SoC) baseboard from OmniTek. RTVE 2.1 is a key component of the Xilinx All Programmable Smarter Vision solutions, which combines the Zynq-7000 All Programmable SoC, Vivado High-Level Synthesis (HLS) with IP integrator software tools, OpenCV libraries, SmartCORE IP and hardware development kits
DapTechnology demonstrated the world’s first high speed S3200 3.2 Gigabit IEEE 1394b FireWire system-on-a-chip (SOC) solution at VISION 2009 in Stuttgart, Germany. The demonstration showed video data being transported from a Xilinx development board through a 10 meter standard FireWire cable to a PCI Express board within a host computer. The company is spearheading this development with support from Point Grey as a result of growing market need for higher speed IEEE 1394b technology at a time when comparable silicon-based solutions are non-existent.
