SAN JOSE, Calif., Feb. 13, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Xilinx, Inc. (NASDAQ: XLNX) and its extensive ecosystem will demonstrate All Programmable Embedded Solutions for Smarter Systems at Embedded World 2014.  Through a series of conference papers and in-booth demonstrations, Xilinx and its Alliance Members will highlight how Zynq® All Programmable SoCs are enabling smarter embedded systems in a broad set of applications deploying smarter vision and connected control.  To learn more, visit the Xilinx Stand 1-205 at Embedded World, February 25-27, at the Nuremburg Exhibition Hall in Nuremburg, Germany. 


Xilinx Demonstrations – Stand 1-205
All Programmable Solutions for Smarter Vision Applications

  • Supercomputing Systems (SCS) Real-time Stereo Vision – Demonstration showcases a development system for stereo camera Advanced Driver Assistance Systems based on the Zynq All Programmable SoC.  Geared toward the development of image analytics, this system demonstrates image rectification and disparity calculations on stereo imagers to map location and the distance of forward objects.
  • Embedded Vision Systems (eVS) Real-time Vehicle Detection Image Processing – Demonstration shows the feasibility of building block IP from eVS for use in advanced object identification and tracking on the Zynq All Programmable SoC by implementing algorithms to identify and highlight other vehicles using a graphical overlay. 
  • Xylon Head Detection and Facial Features Tracking – Demonstration implements real-time head and gaze tracking, as well as facial feature recognition, enabled by multiple real-time computer vision algorithms running in parallel on the Zynq All Programmable SoC architecture.  C++ software is enhanced by hardware/software partitioning utilizing the ARM® Cortex™-A9 dual core processors and the FPGA fabric for acceleration on-board the Zynq device.
  • Enhanced LogiADAK Automotive Driver Assistance Kit – Demonstration integrates five cameras into the logiADAK Driver Assistance Development platform.  The remote controlled car demonstration adds a forward camera with Pedestrian Detection feature to 3D 360 degree surround view capability.  Multi-camera and multi-mode advanced driver assistance features are implemented on a single Zynq All Programmable SoC device.
  • Real-time Sensor Fusion on a Single Chip – Joint Xilinx and Xylon Sensor Fusion demonstration, on the Zynq ZC702 All Programmable SoC, blends two sensor images into one and enables viewers to make faster and more reliable decisions. This innovative technology can be paired with OpenCV and Xilinx's Vivado® HLS tools to create highly advanced analytics, which can reduce false alarms. 
  • High Bandwidth Machine Vision – Demonstration showcases two video streams transferred with different high-speed protocols for machine vision cameras and frame grabbers that are enabled by the Xilinx® 7 Series FPGA and SoC devices.  Sensor to Image supports GigEVision 2.0 and CoaXPress IPs and software stacks that enables video transfer rates over 10Gb per second.

In his session at DevOps Summit, Kevin Surace, CEO of Appvance, will discuss how we learn from these real-world succe...
DevOps has often been described in terms of CAMS: Culture, Automation, Measuring, Sharing. While we’ve seen a lot of focus on the “A” and even on the “M”, there are very few examples of why the “C" is equally important in the DevOps equation.

There didn't exist a 'top down' approach that can manage and monitor the way a Smart Buildi...
DevOps delivers remarkable results. But does it help all of IT? Can traditional ‘mode 1’ IT benefit as much as innovative ‘mode 2’? How about the rest of your business? Or have you just shifted your bottleneck? And if so, what can you do about it? Improving dev and ops is necessary, but not sufficient. It often just shifts the burden sideways (e.g., to PMs, SQA, InfoSec, DBAs, NOC, etc.), upstream (to the PMO, Controller, Business Liaison, etc.), or downstream (to TechPubs, Service Desk, Traini...

Mobile messaging has been a popular communication channel for more than 20 years. Finnish engineer Matti Makkonen invented the idea for SMS (Short Message Service) in 1984, making his vision a reality on December 3, 1992 by sending the first message ("Happy Christmas") from a PC to a cell phone. Since then, the technology has evolved immensely, from both a technology standpoint, and in our everyday uses for it. Originally used for person-to-person (P2P) communication, i.e., Sally sends a text...
