Lattice expands mVision solutions stack capabilities

Lattice Semiconductor has released the latest version of its solutions stack for low power embedded vision systems, Lattice mVision 2.0.

The new version features multiple updates that will help to accelerate the design of embedded vision applications for industrial, automotive, medical, and smart consumer systems.

It includes support for new image sensors used in industrial and automotive systems and a new image signal processing IP core and reference design to help developers design smart vision applications at the Edge. The stack also includes support for the Lattice Propel design environment to simplify development of vision systems with an embedded RISC-V processor.

The COVID-19 pandemic and the drive to improve safety and efficiency is accelerating the need for industrial companies to incorporate smart embedded vision technology in their systems to support human presence detection, touchless HMI, and enhanced AR/VR capabilities, while simultaneously striving to improve manufacturing quality and throughput by leveraging intelligent machine vision technology.

Research conducted by Allied Market Research found that, “the global machine vision system market size was valued at $29.7 billion in 2019, and is projected to reach $74.9 billion by 2027, registering a CAGR of 11.3% from 2020 to 2027."

“Lattice solutions stacks make it easier for customers to adopt emerging technologies by providing a comprehensive collection of ready-to-use software, IP, hardware demos, and reference designs that help them quickly deploy applications like embedded vision in current and future product designs,” explained Mark Hoopes, Director of Industrial Segment Marketing, Lattice Semiconductor. “The updates expand the potential use cases for mVision by broadening support for popular image sensors used in industrial and automotive markets, simplifying hardware and software design with our drag-and-drop Propel design environment, and adding development boards and reference designs powered by our flagship FPGA for embedded vision, CrossLink-NX.”

Key updates to the Lattice mVision solutions stack include:

· Expanded support for automotive, industrial, and medical embedded vision applications – Lattice has added new development boards supporting popular image sensors for industrial and medical applications to the mVision stack. Image sensors supported include the Sony IMX464 and IMX568 and the AR0344CS from ON Semiconductor.

· Support for Lattice Propel Design Environment – Propel is a design environment for accelerating embedded processor-based development on low power, small form factor Lattice FPGAs. The tool includes a complete set of graphical and command-line tools to create, analyse, compile, and debug both the hardware design of an FPGA-based processor system, and the software design for that processor system.

· New Lattice ISP reference design - Expands Lattice’s mVision solution options for customers, enabling increased adoption while demonstrating our commitment to our customers.
