The folks at Avnet Electronics Marketing (an operating group of Avnet) have announced the release of the Xilinx Spartan-3A DSP 1800A Video Kit and the NEC 6.5 inch LCD Panel Kit.
Both kits provide solutions for exploring, prototyping, and developing designs in the video surveillance, machine vision, video processing, and embedded LCD panel interface applications.
Avnet's Xilinx Spartan-3A DSP 1800A Video Kit is a fully integrated platform comprised of the new NEC 6.5 inch LCD Panel Kit, the Avnet PS-Video EXP module, and the Spartan-3A DSP Starter Kit. Multiple video input and output formats, along with the flexibility of the Spartan-3A DSP FPGA, provide the necessary hardware and interfaces that designers need to explore video application designs. Several FPGA-based reference designs are provided and highlight interface capabilities and the DDR2-based video frame buffer controller.
The NEC 6.5 inch LCD Panel Kit, encased in a customized plastic enclosure, includes a 1024 × 768 pixel Extended Graphics Array (XGA), LED backlight, LCD panel, a 12 volt power supply and a data interface cable. The kit is the perfect add-on display for the Avnet PS-Video EXP Module, providing a high resolution panel for the various video functions included on the PS Video module. The NEC panel and PS Video EXP can be added to several of the Avnet EXP enabled baseboards, which support Virtex-5 and Spartan-3A devices, to create a complete prototype environment for developing video solutions.
The Avnet 6.5 inch NEC Panel Kit and the Xilinx Spartan-3A DSP 1800A Video Kit are currently available to customers worldwide. For more information, please visit: www.em.avnet.com/spartan3adsp-video or www.em.avnet.com/nec-lcdpanel.
