On the path for faster time-to market and reduced development time and cost, rapid prototyping is required for many electronic designs. To accomplish this task, designers need to reuse existing hardware and software building blocks. The emergence of vision technologies further complicates this path as many design engineers have experience in everything but embedded vision!
