Video Interface Platform

Modular Prototyping System for Flexible Video Connectivity and Processing

The Video Interface Platform (VIP) for embedded vision designs provides a highly flexible, smart modular solution for embedded vision designers who need to build a prototyping system quickly.

VIP allows an easy inter-connect of input and output interface boards through a simple Snap-On concept. Two 60-pin high speed board-to-board connectors eliminate wiring and ensure that designers can reuse existing field proven hardware and software building blocks.

VIP is the ideal prototyping solution for embedded vision systems in Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS), drones, gaming systems, virtual reality (VR), surveillance and security systems, medical equipment and Artificial Intelligence (AI) solutions.
