SP1 and Stereo Vision Core Performance Improvement

We have increased the disparity range of both, the SP1 and the stereo vision core to 112 pixels. This has been made possible by an improved parallelization of the employed image processing algorithms.

We have successfully improved the performance of both, the SP1 stereo vision sensor and our stereo vision IP core. For the SP1 we increased the disparity range from previously 96 pixels to 112 pixels, while keeping image resolution and processing rate equal.

Similarly, we have increased the disparity range in the default parameterization of the stereo vision core to 112 pixels. Compared to the previous version, the new stereo vision core now uses less resources, despite the increased disparity range. This change was made possible by an improved parallelization of the employed image processing algorithms.

The product pages for the SP1 and the stereo vision core have both been updated. We continue enhancing our image processing algorithms. It is thus likely that further performance improvements will be available in future.
