Lattice Semiconductor's mVision solutions stack softens the difficulties of embedded system development
Published: 25 February 2020 - Christian Lynn
Lattice Semiconductor has introduced the mVision solutions stack, for the purpose of accelerating and simplifying the implementation of embedded vision systems such as machine vision, ADAS, drones and AR/VR for the industrial, automotive, consumer, smart home, and medical markets; it includes the modular hardware development boards, design software, embedded vision IP portfolio, and reference designs and demos needed to implement sensor bridging, sensor aggregation, and image processing applications.
This comes as a result of a push for further integration of embedded vision into traditionally physical areas of the industry. The Edge AI and Vision Alliance is committed to fostering the adoption of embedded vision in new products, and its founder, Jeff Bier, had this to say: “Manufacturing inspection was one of the first markets to widely adopt computer vision. Today, embedded vision is expanding into a wide range of industrial applications, such as automated assembly and inventory. Many of these applications demand small, low cost, low power solutions. I applaud Lattice Semiconductor’s continuing investment in developing not only in chips, but also in solutions stacks, such as sensAI and mVision, that help developers more easily integrate smart vision capabilities into their product designs.”
“Lattice is committed to delivering complete solutions stacks, such as our multiple award winning sensAI stack, which accelerate the adoption of the disruptive technologies driving growth across multiple end markets,” said Deepak Boppana, senior director of segment and solutions marketing, Lattice Semiconductor. “With our Lattice mVision solutions stack, we bring the ease-of-use benefits of our solutions stacks, as well as the performance, reliability, and power savings made possible by our new Lattice Nexus FPGA development platform, to the embedded vision market.”
