Cameleon


Cameleon is fast-adaptive, has flexible imaging and stereoscopic view.

Cameleon is flexible imaging platform based on Spartan-3E FPGA and USB communication. It offers simple entry point to FPGA imaging. The FPGA can be used for real-time high-speed image processing.

The package includes the FPGA reference design and PC software with source code. Examples in C#, MatLab and Xilinx tool suite are available.

The image-processing core library includes 3D laser triangulation (3D scanning)* and a 2D FIR filter. It is extremely versatile and rich in free IOs, which can be used for VGA, SPI, I2C, encoders, etc.

* Cameleon WVGA mono only!
