EMB: Reduce Complexity in Vision Applications with a New Standard Sensor Interface

One of the biggest challenges for engineers looking to add embedded vision or image sensors to a design is the diversity in camera and sensor hardware interfaces, which is enough to make your head explode. A standard like the MIPI Camera Serial Interface 2 (CSI-2), a high-speed protocol that defines the interface between the image sensors, ISP and a host processor, is widely used today for high-speed communications output from image sensors in most embedded systems. Its popularity is due to the fact that it vastly reduces the complexity of integration for developers.
But existing standards like this describe only the electrical interface—namely point-to-point image and video transmission between cameras and host devices and a software protocol. Up until now, none have addressed the physical connection, defining such pesky but necessary details like which signal will reside on which pin. In this presentation we will discuss the new, standardized IAS (Imager Access System) MIPI sensor interface, which addresses hardware, and where it’s gaining traction among suppliers.
This presentation will provide an overview of:
• A range of popular image sensors and how they map to specific vision applications
• The new IAS MIPI sensor interface
• Different camera modules using the IAS sensor interface for industrial embedded vision applications
• NXP and Xilinx-based vision platforms using IAS sensor interface
• Demo of facial recognition application using an example development platform using IAS sensor interface

Attendees will be eligible for an FPGA-based SoC dev board bundle giveaway, consisting of:
Mini but Mighty Avnet MiniZed: AES-MINIZED-7Z007-G
🦾 MiniZed is the perfect launching pad for your next Zynq-7000 SoC project. Featuring a Zynq Z7007S, which integrates an Arm Cortex-A9 processor with Xilinx Artix-7 programmable logic, the MiniZed is a low-cost yet versatile development board targeted for entry-level Zynq designs. This compact single board computer features on-board connectivity through USB, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. Peripherals can be plugged into dual Peripheral Module (Pmod) compatible connectors, the Arduino-compatible shield interface or the USB 2.0 host interface. JTAG circuitry is incorporated onto the MiniZed base board, so with a single microUSB cable to your laptop you are already up and running. User LED’s, a button and a switch allow for a physical board interface.
MiniZed is ideal for:
  • Developers needing cost-effective scalable prototyping
  • Hardware enthusiasts building a low-cost embedded project
  • New Xilinx users looking for a starter board
  • Educators running workshops and tutorials

TE HTU21D Digital Humidity and Temperature Sensor Peripheral Module: DPP301Z000
☔ Sense the world around you digitally with this versatile environmental sensor with built-in capability for both humidity and temperature. This small Peripheral Module is a great add-on for our MiniZed development board which enables system designers to easily compute the local dew point from relative humidity and temperature measurements from this sensor.
