Atmel Adds Improved Features to its CAMELIA Family of Digital Imaging Systems

„CAMELIA M1 8M and CAMELIA C1 8M Digital Cameras Now Provide 12-Bit Black and White or Color Images at 8 Megapixels\r\n
\r\n
\r\nGRENOBLE, France–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Feb. 4, 2003– Atmel® Corporation (Nasdaq:ATML – News) today announced an improved version of its CAMELIA 8Megapixels, member in its CAMELIA(TM) family of digital imaging systems which now include a digital camera head, a digital PCI frame grabber and associated WINDOWS® software.“;“The CAMELIA M1 8M (black and white) and CAMELIA C1 8M (color), based on a large format (close to 35mm film size) progressive scan CCD featuring 2300 (H) x 3500 (V) or 8 million square pixels, has been improved on electro-optical performance, in particular by reducing power consumption, using a new front panel and an internal heat sink. The electronic modules in the camera has been redesigned to provide new features. CAMELIA C1 8M delivers a very high sensitivity and excellent color reproduction thanks to the use of new color filters.\r\n
\r\n
\r\nPerformance and reliability of this CAMELIA 8M make it well suited for the most demanding applications like film and document scanning, microscopy and cell biology semiconductor and PCB inspection, metrology, ophtalmology and display inspection in machine vision.\r\n
\r\n
\r\nCAMELIA M1 8M and CAMELIA C1 8M capture and deliver 12 bit image data with a dedicated electronic image processor module, featuring an excellent signal to noise ratio.\r\n
\r\n
\r\nThe CCD sensor is able to work in 1×1, 2×2, 4×4 binning mode and in ROI mode (Region of Interest). These features allow faster preview mode from 2.7 frames/second up to 9 frames/second.\r\n
\r\n
\r\nOn both models, the programmable settings allow the user to select different integration time, gain and offset. External trigger enables synchronising the camera on external event. The CAMELIA M1 8M provides Black and White images but can be used in tri-shot color mode allowing very high color resolution acquisition. The CAMELIA C1 8M uses a color CCD (bayer filter), and offers 4 programmable color gains to allow an hardware white balance correction thus avoiding additional software processing\r\n
\r\n
\r\nThe complete CAMELIA 8M system is delivered with user-friendly application and interface software, and supports Camera Link(TM), a new imaging industry standard for serial interface. With Camera Link, the system designer can access all data synchronisation and total camera control with a unique and standard cable. The CAMELIA 8M family also includes a parallel LVDS (Low Voltage Differential Signaling) version, which allows the use of longer cable.\r\n
