PORTLAND, Ore.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#CrossLinkLattice
Semiconductor Corporation
(NASDAQ: LSCC), the leading provider of
customizable smart connectivity solutions, and HelionVision®
today announced the latest solution to expedite embedded vision design
and prototyping. The free evaluation version of Helion’s latest
pre-packaged IONOS™ image signal processing (ISP) options for Lattice’s Embedded
Vision Development Kit
expedites the IP selection process, reduces
development time and accelerates time-to-market. This collaboration
creates a complete hardware and software solution for embedded vision
applications in Industry 4.0 applications, robotics, drones, automotive,
AR and intelligent cameras for smart cities.

The long-term partnership between Lattice and Helion focuses on creating
solutions based on years of accumulated customer engagements. Lattice’s
first-of-its-kind development kit combines CrossLink™
video bridging FPGA, ECP5™
processing FPGA and high-resolution HDMI®
ASSP into a single, modular platform, along with Helion’s pre-packaged
ISP options. This complete solution simplifies the development of
advanced applications at the edge.

“With its new Embedded Vision Kit, Lattice is addressing the need for
rapid development and simplicity of connectivity solutions in a fast
growing intelligent systems market,” said Dr.-Ing. Arndt Bußmann, CTO at
Helion Vision. “Our ISP solutions and design services are ideal for
customized camera systems, imaging modules and complete camera and
display systems, and we look forward to continuing our work with Lattice
to expand upon future intelligent edge systems.”

Key features of Helion’s ISP cores include:

  • Four ready-to-integrate ISP options ranging from entry level ECO
    HD-ISP (optimized for size) all the way to the higher-performance HDR
    HD-ISP providing High Dynamic Range (HDR) and Full HD at 60 fps
    quality with 32-bit color depth.
  • Each ISP is sensor independent, and its advanced bus architecture
    ensures that each IP core is fully user configurable.

“Our Embedded Vision Development Kit accelerates system design through
rapid prototyping and simplified testing. It is ideal for applications
such as augmented reality, medical, machine vision required in Industry
4.0, surround view cameras in smart automotive and intelligent traffic
cameras in smart cities,” said Dirk Seidel, senior marketing manager at
Lattice. “Helion’s IONOS ISP pipelines add even more value to our
offerings by allowing our customers easy access to Helion’s expert
knowledge in research and development within the image signal processing
and embedded vision design industry.”

In conjunction with this partnership announcement, Lattice will be
offering the Embedded Vision Development Kit for a special promotional
price of $199 USD from Oct. 2, 2017 – March 30, 2018. For more
information on the Embedded Vision Development Kit and to download the
free evaluation version of Helion’s IONOS ISP, please visit
