Avnet Electronics Marketing, an operating group of Avnet Inc., has introduced its MicroZed embedded vision carrier card kit to help engineers speed up the deployment of solutions incorporating the versatile and low-cost MicroZed system-on-module (SOM). According to the company, the kit builds on the MicroZed SOM by providing a video-specific carrier card, with camera connector, for optional camera modules featuring image sensors from ON Semi and Toshiba America Electronic Components Inc.

Two versions of the kit are available: the MicroZed embedded vision carrier card kit, without a MicroZed SOM, for users who have a MicroZed SOM; and the MicroZed embedded vision development kit, including a MicroZed 7020 SOM and voucher for the Vivado Design Edition design suite, device-locked to the Zynq 7020.

Both the carrier card kit and full development kit include the hardware, software and IP components necessary for the development of custom video applications including video analytics, machine vision, medical imaging, video surveillance and advanced driver assistance systems. Optional add-on camera modules supported by the kit include ON Semi's PYTHON image sensor family and Toshiba TCM3232PB full HD (1080p high-definition) image sensor. A camera design guide will also be included to help customers develop their own camera modules.

In addition, Xylon, a Xilinx IP provider, will make several reference designs available for the MicroZed Embedded Vision Carrier Card, including an advanced image processing solution (ISP) and face analytics.

The MicroZed embedded vision carrier card kit includes: a MicroZed embedded vision carrier card, 5V power supply, microHDMI to HDMI cables (2), microUSB to USB cable, Ethernet cable, 4Gb microSD Card, tripod adapter, tripod, Quick Start Card, and downloadable documentation and reference designs.

The MicroZed embedded vision development kit includes all contents of MicroZed Embedded Vision Carrier Card Kit, as well as: the MicroZed 7020 and the Xilinx Vivado Design Edition license voucher device-locked to Zynq 7020.

The MicroZed Embedded Vision Carrier Card Kit ($279) and the MicroZed Embedded Vision Development Kit ($549) are available from Avnet Electronics Marketing.
