Lattice Semiconductor's CrossLink Video Interface Platform (VIP) bridge board contains an FPGA and a pair of IMX214 camera sensors.
Automotive systems like Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) make extensive use of multiple types of sensors, including cameras. Vision systems are also a key element in many other embedded applications, from robotics to surveillance. Higher resolution cameras can produce higher quality images, but these also require more processing.
However, adding FPGAs to the mix can be pre-processed, thereby reducing bandwidth requirements and adding functionality at the source. For many applications, this could be a boon, from unmanned aircraft to augmented and virtual reality headsets.
