  1. Hi again (@Notarobot, @xc6lx45),
    While I was searching online I came across this project/kit (https://www.xilinx.com/support/documentation/application_notes/xapp794-1080p60-camera.pdf) from Xilinx/Avnet. It has an Avnet FMC-IMAGEON (FMC daughter board) with VITA-2000 (Phyton-1300 C as option too) camera/image sensor with Xilinx ZC702 board. It would read the images at 60fps with 1080p resolution, and then do the other tasks ( display the images etc.)

    I am basically looking for something like this, but I will be needing more fps at lower resolutions. I know that the necessary arrangements in codes/IP’s shall be made. Other than that, I have these questions popped up in my mind:

    Q1: Can this example project do 500+fps with lower resolution (160x120pixels)?
    Q2: If not, what is the bottleneck and is there a way to fix it?
    Q3: If the bottleneck is the image sensor, can it be replaced with any other, do you sell different embedded vision kits that capable of doing my project?
    Q4: If the bottleneck is the FMC daughter board, do you have a better one or do you have any suggestions?
    Q5: If the bottleneck is interface, what do you suggest?
    Q6: Is there any other way to connect the image sensor to an FPGA, if so would lead/help me to find out?

  2. Thank you so much for both (@Notarobot, @xc6lx45) your responses, and i am sorry that i missed an "am" when wrote my post. But i can assure you both that i am not underestimating the work that has to be done to do the task. I just don't know / not sure where to start and which way is less trouble. As i said i am in beginner level of this all and i would be so grateful if one can lead/show/help me on my way. 

    I want to build this project and willing to learn and dig in. So please help me on this subject. I am researching about how to physically connect the image sensor with FPGA board, and i am having a hard time to see any examples/demos or etc, that is why i still didn't order the FPGA board because i don't know what is the best match.


  3. Hi there, i a newbie. I hope i am asking the right questions.
    I have been trying to figure out what kind of hardware/software is needed for my project. The project is getting the images with a high speed image sensor with a frame rate of 500-1000fps at a lower resolutions such as 160x120 or 480x360 pixels. The frames will be read or saved with FPGA SoC board. I know that I have an option of given interfaces:
    Option 1: Board level image sensor with FFC Cable (LVDS or MIPI CSI-2 interface)
    Option 2: Boxed camera with USB3.0 Cable interface

    I would love to think about the option 2.
    The Basler acA640750um USB 3.0 camera with ON Semiconductor PYTHON 300 CMOS sensor.
    This camera has a frame rate of 751 fps at VGA resolution. So if I have a FPGA board with a USB3.0 this option would be okay for plug and go ?

    I hope someone will lead me and help me.


  4. Hi, I am a newbie...
    I am interested in buying Embedded Vision Bundle, but i have some technical concerns.
    I read on the datasheet of Zybo Z7-20 that the PCAM module is working (or preset) under the specific frame per second rate ( such as 30 or 60 fps) at the full resolution. 
    ( in this given link below, the supported resolutions are given as

    https://reference.digilentinc.com/learn/programmable-logic/tutorials/zybo-z7-pcam-5c-demo/start )

    I know that it is only a demo document, and i am hopping that with proper way i can get a higher frame rates at lower resolutions.

    My question that is it possible to have higher fps rates (i.e 1000 fps) at lower resolution (i.e 750fps 320x240 pixels).

    Thank you so much in advance,
