The modular VIP platform provides designers with the ability to build an embedded vision prototyping system quickly by mixing and matching different input and output boards, eliminating cumbersome manual wiring and enabling faster time-to-market through a unified connector. At the base of the platform is the Embedded Vision Development Kit which combines the benefits of the CrossLink mobile bridging FPGA, the optimized ECP5 image signal processing FPGA, and the high-bandwidth, high-resolution HDMI ASSP onto a single, ready-to-use design platform. Lattice’s new USB3-GigE VIP IO Board enables Ethernet connections at gigabit speeds and USB 3.0 connectivity, extending the VIP interface options, and ensuring simplified prototyping for embedded vision systems.

“With more applications looking to integrate vision technology, Lattice continues to solve designer problems by offering advanced connectivity and the reuse of proven hardware and software building blocks,” said Dirk Seidel, senior product marketing manager at Lattice Semiconductor. “The addition of the USB3-GigE VIP IO Board to our Video Interface Platform allows designers to simply add network connectivity through the use of a unified connector, accelerating their embedded vision prototyping.”

In addition to a variety of hardware options, Lattice’s VIP offers IPs from 3rd party VIP ecosystem partners. IP options include commercial grade Image Signal Processing and networking stacks, Helion Vision’s GigE Vision, and a variety of different sensor input boards and DisplayPort IP (including eDP support) from Bitec.
