Lattice unveils upgraded mVision stack

1 min read

The mVision stack from Lattice Semiconductor now supports 4K video data processing and LPDDR4 memory in order to deliver higher quality image signal processing (ISP) performance.

The upgrade will enable developers to implement high-speed communication and display interfaces to accelerate embedded vision performance for Edge applications including Machine Vision, Robotics, ADAS, Video Surveillance, and Drones.

"Supporting vision applications at the Edge requires developers to achieve a delicate balance between providing the processing performance these applications require while fitting within the design’s power consumption and physical footprint constraints,” said Mark Hoopes, Director of Industrial and Automotive Segment Marketing, Lattice Semiconductor. “Our mVision stack simplifies and accelerates embedded vision solution development, and our latest release leverages the class-leading features of Lattice Nexus FPGAs to support high performance interfaces and faster processing at low power.”

The mVision solution stack version 2.1 includes:

  • Expanded support capabilities – e.g. includes support for the LPDDR4 DRAM memory standard.
  • New signal bridging and duplication reference designs – the latest reference designs help developers convert legacy video standards commonly used in Industrial applications to the more widely-used MIPI standard.

The new reference designs include:

  • MIPI to parallel conversion
  • Parallel to MIPI conversion
  • MIPI CSI-2 to LVDS conversion
  • 1-to-N MIPI duplicator
  • New ISP solutions
  • New Lattice ISP support for Lattice Nexus FPGAs
  • New ISP support from Lattice partner Helion enables high resolution, high frame rate UHD cameras
