Reducing cost, risk and time for manufacturers of video and vision products

We have developed a pool of expertise and a wealth of IP to solve customer design challenges in the areas of intelligent video and vision processing. Our very experienced and skilled designers are motivated to meet customers’ design needs with the most efficient and often innovative solution using our library of highly optimised and proven IP. This quest often leads us to replace ASICs and ASSPs with more effective and efficient designs on FPGAs and programmable SoCs. Our experience covers a wide variety of applications ranging from high volume consumer electronics to low volume specialist design in markets such as medical imaging.

Our partnership with Omnitek continues to flourish and we are excited about the continued innovation that Omnitek bring to the professional video market. Their expertise and understanding of market requirements means that our mutual customers can benefit from cost-effective packaged solutions that can accelerate time-to-market and use the All Programmable Xilinx platform to add differentiation.

Ramesh Iyer, Director Pro AV & Broadcast Vertical Market at Xilinx

Omnitek have established themselves as a world leading provider of embedded vision and video FPGA IP and Design Services. They have assisted many of Xilinx’s leading clients by providing optimised IP and algorithm designs. Omnitek has an excellent understanding of Xilinx FPGA and MPSoC devices, and is able to provide highly efficient bespoke turnkey solutions.

Design & Program Management Expertise

In addition to providing design services and IP, we also develop and manufacture test and measurement products. This means we understand all the stages, processes and challenges that are faced when getting products from drawing board to market on time and are therefore ideally suited to help others develop their own products. We have expertise in-house, and industry contacts, to be able to find solutions to problems in circuit design, PCB layout, manufacturing, testing, compliance and other areas.

Our Design Services projects are managed as part of an overall program of resource management, risk management and tracking to ensure that projects are delivered on time and on budget. All Project Lead engineers have extensive experience both within Omnitek and elsewhere. All project engineers are chosen based on their knowledge, skills and experience of similar projects.

There is a direct synergy between the provision of design services with IP, and the design and manufacture of our test and measurement equipment. In order to develop video products that support numerous formats, image sizes and frame rates, it is necessary to have appropriate equipment to test the design. We have developed IP to perform measurement, monitoring and logging and this is used within our own Test and Measurement products.

Omnitek’s ISO 9000 Quality Management Process ensures that all activities are performed repeatably and professionally and places the customer’s needs at the heart of our business. As a manufacturer, Omnitek makes products that are compliant with RoHS, WEEE, EMC and EMC Immunity requirements.

Xilinx Alliance Program

The Xilinx Alliance Program is a worldwide ecosystem of qualified companies collaborating with Xilinx to further the development of All Programmable technologies. Leveraging open platforms and standards, Xilinx has built this ecosystem to meet customer needs and is committed to its long-term success.

Omnitek is a Certified Premier Member of the Xilinx Alliance Program. Our staff are highly experienced and are individually certified to ensure comprehensive FPGA architecture knowledge and that all designs are efficiently implemented to take advantage of the latest technology.

To be selected into the Premier Member tier in the Xilinx Alliance Program, companies have to pass an exhaustive 320-point on-site audit from Xilinx covering business processes, technical competency, product quality, and supportability. Xilinx Premier Members annually refresh Certification training to ensure they have the most updated knowledge on the latest technologies from Xilinx.

Omnitek is also a member of Xilinx’s Accelerator Program for accelerating workloads in the cloud using FPGAs.
