Atmel Introduces New Color Line Scan Cameras

\r\n
\r\nAVIIVA C2, a high-speed, high-performance color single CCD camera, and AKYLA, a tri-CCD color camera, target a variety of demanding industrial and color scanning applications

\r\n
\r\n“;“GRENOBLE, France–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Oct. 7, 2002– Atmel® Corporation (Nasdaq:ATML – News) announced today the availability of AT71C2LV and AT71C2CL, which make up AVIIVA(TM) C2, a new member of the AVIIVA family of high-speed, high-performance Line scan CCD Cameras. Additionally, the introduction of Atmel’s AT71MD represents a brand new family of tri-CCD color cameras called AKYLA(TM). Drawing on its advanced expertise in CCD design, technology and camera production, Atmel offers outstanding signal to noise ratios, and increased responsiveness compared with traditional CCD cameras. The AVIIVA product family has been built on a new user friendly concept comprising three key design factors: versatility, accuracy and ease of implementation for applications such as web inspection to document scanning and from surface inspection to metrology.\r\n
\r\n\r\n
\r\nThe AVIIVA C2 incorporates a 4 K pixel sensor with a 10 micron meter pixel size and a RGB color pattern in a 56 mm wide casing, camera mounting holes, a versatile camera attachment and the ability to fix a heatsink on any side of the camera. The camera can operate up to 60 Mpixels/sec in 12 bits and offer a very competitive color scanning solution. Additional flexibility is offered to the end-user via programmable settings alongside features such as data rate selection, trigger mode, antiblooming and exposure control functions with no lag effects.\r\n
\r\n\r\n
\r\nThe AKYLA family features 1 K and 2 K pixel sensors with a 10 micron meter pixel size targeting the most demanding color scanning applications with high color fidelity. The camera can operate up to 3×30 Mpixels/sec in 10 bits.\r\n
\r\n\r\n
\r\nBoth cameras are designed to offer excellent signal to noise performance.\r\n
\r\n\r\n
\r\nThe AVIIVA C2 and the AKYLA Line Scan families supports Camera Link(TM), the Automated Imaging Association’s new serial interface for the machine vision industry. With Camera Link, the system designer can access all data, synchronization and total camera control with a unique and standard cable. The AVIIVA and AKYLA Line Scan family also includes a parallel LVDS (Low Voltage Differential Signaling) version, which allows the use of longer cable. These cameras are in full production.\r\n
