Video decoding and output to TFT panel

Tags: Lattice, H.264, H.265 MIPI, Display

A video TS stream decoded by an iMX8 SoM module. Transmitted to Lattice FPGA using MIPI CSI-2 interface and displayed on the TFT panel.

Video decoding and output to TFT panel lattice

Image processing on ECP5

Tags: Lattice, Image Processing, HyperRam, Display

A video stream captured from HDMI interface. Then a chain of image processing operations takes place: white balance and gamma correction, cropping, scaling, and rotation. Finally, video displays on the TFT panel.

Image processing on ECP5

X-Ray imaging system

Tags: Lattice, CMOS, Xilinx, 1G

A complete device has been designed for image capturing from 80 X-Ray CMOS sensors. Image captured and pre-processed by Lattice MACHXO3 FPGA, downstream to ARTIX7 motherboard as daisy-chain. FW update and other control operations mediated by external MCU.

Deploy your Edge AI solution with Lattice senseAI

senseAI stack

We’ve covered the Lattice senseAI solution stack application for designing custom FPGA platforms in our recent press release. We have observed an increase in the number of so-called on-edge AI projects in which the client needs to implement AI/ML on small-scale and low-power hardware platforms.

Alex Promwad

"Typical microcontrollers lack the performance needed for the Edge AI applications, while more advanced solutions like NVidia Jetson are beyond the allotted power budget. Thanks to low-power FPGA, image processing support and sensor-agnostic AI inferencing, the senseAI platform by Lattice is an attractive choice for many low-power Edge AI systems."

— Alex, the head of the Adaptive Computing Systems department at Promwad
