    The Smart Vision Development Kit leverages the PicoZed System-On-Module (SOM) by providing a feature-rich, modular carrier card for machine vision applications.  This kit provides all the necessary components to start development of embedded vision applications, including the PicoZed 7015 Zynq SOM, the Smart Vision Carrier Card, a 1.2MP Aptina camera module, power supply, various cables, and a 1-year  license voucher for the Xilinx Vivado Design Edition software (device locked to the Zynq 7015). The Smart Vision Carrier Card provides several industry standard vision connectivity interfaces, including GigEVision (GEV), USB3Vision (U3V), and CoaXPress (CXP). The included Quick Start Guide will have you running the out-of-box design in less than 5 minutes. The Smart Vision kit also includes demonstration versions of several advanced software tools to help accelerate your embedded vision development.
