Embedded vision innovations at SPIE Photonics West

At SPIE Photonics West, Vision Components will present new products geared at vision OEMs. In addition to full-fledged embedded vision systems, these include the brand-new MIPI camera modules. These ultra-compact boards are manufactured at highly competitive costs, making them ideal for applications with a large number of cameras. OEMs have a choice of two global shutter sensors and four rolling shutter sensors with resolutions up to 8.4 MP. Higher-res MIPI cameras are upcoming. The MIPI cameras can currently be connected to more than 20 CPU boards. In addition, the German embedded vision experts will present their extended range of VC Z smart cameras based on Sony Pregius sensors. These cameras achieve outstanding frame rates, for instance 88 fps at 3.2 MP resolution. The lineup includes board cameras, stereo cameras, and enclosed, standalone models. They contain a Xilinx Zynq module, a system on chip (SoC), which comprises a dual-core ARM Cortex-A9 processor with a 2 x 866 MHz clock rate as well as an FPGA. The latest addition to the VC Z series, the VCnano3D-Z laser profiler, will also be on show. Featuring Vision Components‘ proprietary ambient light suppression technology, this intelligent 3D vision system enables measurements under up to 100,000 lux. The onboard FPGA is pre-programmed to calculate the 3D point cloud. The ARM processor can thereby be freely programmed for further application-specific tasks such as analyzing the grayscale image
