4K Vision Edge Computing Platform Features Xilinx Zynq UltraScale+ ZU3EG MPSoC

Last year, MyIR Tech introduced MYD-CZU3EG development board powered by a Xilinx Zynq UltraScale+ ZU3EG MPSoC with Arm Cortex-A53 cores and FPGA fabric designed for applications such as cloud computing, machine vision, flight navigation, and other complex embedded applications.

The company has now announced another Zynq Ultrascale+ ZU3EG based platform dedicated to machine vision. The VECP Starter Kit (Vision Edge Computing Platform) is comprised of MYD-CZU3EG-ISP development board fitted with the company’s MYC-CZU3EG Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC CPU module, a fansink, and a SONY IMX334 4K camera sensor.
