This past week I took a look at the KV260 Vision AI Starter Kit courtesy of Xilinx and rscasny   https://www.xilinx.com/products/som/kria/kv260-vision-starter-kit.html   First thing first. This is Xilinx entry into the System on Module (SOM) market. The KV260 is a carrier board targeting AI vision applications. The kit carries a non-production version of the Kria SOM. Non-production meaning reduced operating temperature range. It's mainly targeted at software developers that can l ...
This project details how to build a stereo depth camera with AI capabilities on a ZYNQ MPSOC platform.   This time we'll see how to use the Vitis Vison layer L1 libraries and PYNQ framework to implement a complete stereo depth pipeline. There are a number of past and existing bugs on Vitis Vision libraries so this procedure has not been smooth. In addition the PYNQ framework is in a state of flux (from 2.5.1 to 2.6) so there are some API changes.   1. Setting up the environment Fi ...
Stereopsis is the inference of depth by comparing two images from slightly different perspectives. There are a number of local and global algorithms used to obtain a real time stereo depth map. The computational requirements for stereo however are quite large. Before one delves into the implementation of stereo vision what is needed is a stereo camera setup!   This series will document how to build a stereo camera setup from scratch. The next step will then be to experiment with stereo a ...
Introduction This project is a follow up from the previous project on porting the PYNQ framework to the ZC702 development board. In this article we will show how to leverage the xOpenCV framework in conjunction with the PYNQ framework  to implement a basic image processing pipeline on ZYNQ series FPGA SoC . The project will be developed on a ZC702 development board using a generic USB camera.   Now , we will look at developing an end to end system for resizing live video using the ...

Porting PYQN to ZC702

Posted by dimiterk Feb 11, 2020
In this project we will port the PYNQ framework to the ZC702 development board.  Introduction   The ZC702 is an official development board from Xilinx. This board sports a ZC7020 ZYNQ FPGA SoC. It comes with a number of peripherals including HDMI, CAN Bus, UART, embedded Digilent JTAG Programmer, Ethernet , SD card, USB host , I2C bus expander and a number of SMBUS enabled PMIC for monitoring the SoC rails.      PYNQ is a project by Xilinx that brings Python le ...
A couple of months back I received a ZC702 Xilinx development board from Randall after pitching an idea on how to build an embedded vision project. The board arrived a couple of weeks later (thank you Randall) and I started working on the steps to build an embedded vision application that targets real time lane detection. The main idea was to build a vision system capable of automatic lane detection. In a nutshell,  I wanted to build a custom vision application running on the FPGA fabric th ...
