If you are designing a machine that “sees,” then look for Avnet
Electronics Marketing, an operating group of Avnet,
Inc. (NYSE:AVT) at the Embedded Vision Summit on October 2-3, 2013.
Avnet will host two hands-on workshops, deliver the featured “Targeting
Computer Vision Algorithms to Microprocessors,” and offer three product
demonstrations at the show.
At the Blackfin® Embedded Vision Starter Kit Hands-On Workshop,
Analog Devices, Avnet Electronics Marketing and BDTI will present a
workshop exploring hardware and software for image processing and
video analytics, featuring the Avnet/Analog
Devices Embedded Vision Starter Kit. This workshop is an excellent
starting point for vision application developers interested in
exploring a wide range of embedded vision applications.
In the Zynq-7000/Vivado Smarter Vision Hands-On Workshop,Avnet
Electronics Marketing and Xilinx will present a workshop introducing
SoC application development, with a specific focus on embedded vision
using the Xilinx Vivado® Design Suite to target the Xilinx Zynq-7000
All Programmable SoC. An OpenCV example will be used to demonstrate
how a software implementation of an embedded vision application can be
accelerated by building a custom hardware accelerator on the Zynq
SoC’s programmable fabric, achieving 1080P60 at 1W power consumption.

Vision Summit is a technical educational forum for engineers
interested in incorporating visual intelligence into electronic systems
and software. The summit will be held at the Regency
Inn and Conference Center in Westford, Mass.
“With emerging technology to enable high-quality embedded vision
applications, embedded vision is becoming pervasive,” said Jim Beneke,
vice president of global technical marketing for Avnet Electronics
Marketing. “The Embedded Vision Summit is an excellent venue for Avnet
to offer design engineers the strategies, technologies and product
solutions that they need to differentiate their products by
Engineers: Learn to Design Machines that See! Workshops
On October 3, Avnet, along with other members of the Embedded Vision
Alliance, will cohost a two-workshop session titled Engineers: Learn
to Design Machines that See! that is designed to help design
engineers jumpstart their vision applications.
