With this complete and easy-to-use solution, the Video Starter Kit is the ideal hardware platform to evaluate Xilinx FPGAs in a wide range of video and imaging applications. Fully integrated and supported by the Xilinx System Generator for DSP software, the VSK takes advantage of the new highspeed Ethernet hardware co-simulation capability and enables system integration, development and verification of codecs, IP, and video algorithms in real time.

The VSK comprises software, hardware, camera, cables, and a detailed users guide and reference designs. It includes a limited edition of System Generator for DSP, ISE software, and Embedded Design Kit (EDK) FPGA design tools, as well as a Xilinx ML402-SX35 development board, video I/O daughtercard (VIODC), CMOS image sensor camera, power supply, and cables.
