Using a Xilinx XtremeDSP video starter kit and Impulse CoDeveloper C-to-FPGA tools, Impulse Accelerated Technologies’ CSWIN-XIVID-KIT-300 video processing developer’s kit enables users to develop complex object recognition, video format conversion, and HD video filtering algorithms. The Impulse CoDeveloper tool flow includes C-language FPGA reference examples, C-to-hardware tools, and libraries. The product also consists of the Xilinx Platform Studio and System Generator software, and HD video reference examples. The examples have an object recognition template, video de-interlacer, and color format conversion filter. Integration with Xilinx tools allows the generated FPGA hardware to be imported directly into Xilinx Platform Studio for system generation. The Impulse tools include automatic C-to-FPGA hardware generation and interactive optimization functions, and are compatible with C development tools, such as GCC and Microsoft Visual Studio. The kit is appropriate for display processing, automotive infotainment and safety, home security, and machine vision applications.
