Lattice Semi Set to Unveil FPGA-based Camera Design

30 October 2014

Lattice Semiconductor Corp. has teamed with Sensor to Image GmbH for a field programmable gate array (FPGA)-based reference design for USB3 Vision cameras.

The introduction of the camera platform will take place during Vision 2014 in Stuttgart, Germany on Nov. 4-6. The reference design will be used by camera makers for machine vision applications. The design is based on Lattice’s LatticeECP3 FPGA along with Senor to Image’s USB3 Vision IP and tools.

USB3 Vision cameras are used primarily in industrial and medical markets where cost is an issue but reliability and high performance are a must. The reference design provides camera manufactures with everything they need to start developing machine vision cameras at a low price point, Lattice said.

Werner Feith, CEO of Sensor to Image, said in a statement the combination of Lattice’s FPGA along with its own core IP and PC tools allows manufacturers to “minimize risk and project time for USB3 Vision camera designs.”
