RGGBer Dev Kit

Overview

RGGBer is a complete dev-kit dedicated to the embedded vision domain. It is based on an FPGA and provides all the necessary hardware resources to support 1080p @ 60 Hz video applications.

RGGBer helps you quickly start your video or digital image projects with various modular boards and accessories, so you can tailor the hardware to your project. This lets you save time and money by freeing you from having to do general PCB design and construction. It also saves time and money by letting you choose from well developed FPGA framework and reference designs.

In keeping with the principles of open hardware, all documentation regarding the FPGA framework, high quality reference designs, etc., will be freely available on GitHub.

RGGBer is relaunching as RGGBer Dev Kit

Good news for fans and backers of RGGBer, the Swiss Army Knife of embedded vision development! We're going to be relaunching on Crowd Supply soon. We've made some exciting changes to the project, including a new modular approach featuring a suite of daughter-boards and peripherals that you can add and combine to build your own custom imaging development solution. That's why we've renamed the project the RGGBer Dev Kit. For more details on what we've been up to, check out the full update. Read the full update.
