The Basler PowerPack for Embedded Vision is a development kit for a Basler dart camera with BCON for LVDS Interface. It provides a reference design on the base of a MicroZed processing board with Xilinx Zynq®-7010 SoC.
To get started with the development kit and acquire your first images the following documents will help you:
If you're looking for additonal documentation or want to adapt the current carrier board design to your needs than you should refer to the following links:
For more information about the MicroZed processing board please got to zedboard.org. Further documentation, such as the MicroZed Hardware User's Guide or the MicroZed Schematics can be downloaded from here.
The PowerPack for Embedded Vision comes with a pre-loaded SD card. The image on the card contains everything you need for a smooth start with the development kit. Besides a bootable Ubuntu Linux operating system with drivers and libraries for the control of the dart BCON camera, the package includes a preconfigured FPGA image pipeline as well as a copy of Basler’s pylon Software Suite.
The current version of the PowerPack BCON Image as well as future updates can be downloaded from baslerweb.com
In case you want to customize the system from a software point of view or just want to have a look into the associated source files, then you should download the board support package for the PowerPack for Embedded Vision from baslerweb.com. The package contains an Ubuntu Linux distribution with all required drivers, a Vivado FPGA project as well as a pylon example implementation for the software connection of the dart BCON camera to the Basler pylon Software Suite.
