The demand for endoscopic procedures is increasing, and improvements in the screening process and medical equipment need to keep pace. New required features, variations for new markets, and shorter development schedules due to increasing worldwide competition require engineering teams to focus on their core competencies and system knowledge. Engineers require a flexible hardware platform and framework tools that support a variety of platforms, while design teams must make development frameworks more efficient. Altera’s 1080p Video Design Framework and 28-nm Stratix V, Cyclone V, and Arria V FPGAs provide a flexible and systematic approach to handle current and evolving feature requirements.
