The workshop aligns with Digilent's mission of providing a hands-on, project-based, open-ended approach to education. Attendees will use Digilent Zybo Z7 (a Xilinx Zynq SoC FPGA platform), PCAM (5MP camera sensor) and Xilinx Vivado HLx to implement a real-time high definition video processing application.

Examples in the workshop materials are based on both high-level programming language (C++) and hardware description language (VHDL). Trainers will demonstrate HLS design flow, IP core usage, simulation and hardware debugging. Participants will leave the workshop with instructional materials and PCAM, 5MP camera sensor so that they can easily adopt this innovative technique in their own courses and projects.

Topics covered:

  • Explain parallelism and program execution
  • Introduce Xilinx FPGA Architecture and Vivado HLS
  • Introduce Digilent Zybo Z7 and PCAM
  • Accelerate video processing algorithm on Xilinx Vivado
  • Implement video processing design on Digilent Zybo Z7 and PCAM
