Avnet Electronics Marketing Design Expert to Demystify SoC FPGA Development Methodology in Embedded Vision Summit Technical Presentation

Embedded Vision Summit 2015

PHOENIX—May 5, 2015—Avnet Electronics Marketing, an operating group of Avnet, Inc. (NYSE: AVT), announced today that Technical Marketing Engineer Mario Bergeron will be among the technical experts presenting at the Embedded Vision Summit at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, California, May 12, 2015. Bergeron’s presentation, entitled “System-Level Design for Embedded Vision with FPGA-based Programmable SoCs,” is targeted to software designers who have experience with vision algorithms and want to learn more about the development methodology for SoC FPGAs.

The Embedded Vision Summit is a conference and exhibition focused on practical education for product creators, innovators and business leaders who want to incorporate visual intelligence into their products. Embedded vision applications are proliferating in a broad range of products and markets, including agricultural and construction equipment, augmented reality technology, automotive safety, consumer electronics and gaming, digital signage and retail market research, drones, medical imaging, mobile devices, robotics, smart home products and smart toys.

Bergeron will discuss his experience and insights working with SoC FPGAs, from building a custom hardware platform to accelerating video and image functions with custom co-processors. He will describe a typical development cycle for embedded vision applications on programmable SoCs, including some of the challenges that developers may encounter, such as choosing the right IP, building the infrastructure and load balancing.

“FPGA-based programmable system-on-chip (SoC) devices offer capabilities beyond those found in traditional embedded processors. The programmability and vast parallel processing capabilities of the FPGA fabric allow developers to create a custom processor incorporating the interfaces and accelerators of their choice,” said Bergeron “Through this presentation, I hope to broaden the understanding of this very powerful technology and demonstrate its potential for supporting the growing embedded vision market.”

“Mario Bergeron has been a highly rated speaker at previous Embedded Vision Summit events, and I know attendees will benefit from hearing his insights on embedded vision design challenges, as well as seeing Avnet’s development kits in action,” said Jeff Bier, founder of the Embedded Vision Alliance.

In addition to Bergeron’s presentation at the Embedded Vision Summit, Avnet will be demonstrating two of its popular embedded vision development kits: the MicroZed Embedded Vision development kit and the PicoZed Smart Vision development kit.

Understanding Functional Safety FIT Base Failure Rate Estimates per IEC 62380 and SN 29500

Sponsored by Texas Instruments

Functional safety standards such as IEC 61508 and ISO 26262 require semiconductor device manufacturers to address both systematic and random hardware failures. Base failure rates (BFR) quantify the intrinsic reliability of the semiconductor component while operating under normal environmental conditions. Download our white paper which focuses on two widely accepted techniques to estimate the BFR for semiconductor components; estimates per IEC Technical Report 62380 and SN 29500 respectively.
