Embedded video tends to be an increasing subject in embedded Linux developments. Even if ARM SOCs provide great resources for video treatment with dedicated IPU, GPU …, a dual approach based on FPGA + general purpose processor is an interesting alternative.

In this presentation Christian Charreyre will provide a return of experience of a video acquisition and treatment application developed on a Zynq board, with focus on interactions between the FPGA part and Linux. The presentation will also describe the embedded Linux development choices, based on standard meta-xilinx Yocto layer instead of current solutions using PetaLinux or WindRiver Pulsar.

The typical audience is people interested in embedded Linux solutions using a mixed architecture between a general purpose processor and a specialized co-processor. Attendees will receive informations on the relationships between the Linux environment and the FPGA about hardware description, boot mechanism, necessary customizations of Yocto recipes, and much more.
