VisualApplets 3.0 from Silicon Software provides enhanced capabilities and new functionality for developing FPGA (Field Programmable Gate Array) image processing applications for machine vision. FPGAs are ideally suited for image processing tasks. Real-time FPGA parallel processing both guarantees the required throughput and reduces computing demands on the CPU in a PC or smart camera.
The addition of the Gocator 2410 and Gocator 2420 to the LMI range of intelligent 3D line profile sensors brings industry-leading resolution capabilities. Featuring 2 megapixel sensors and a new embedded processor, the new models allow the measurement of micron level features at high speed over a large field of view.
STEMMER IMAGING has developed a subroutine for the Sherlock machine vision environment that allows fully calibrated temperature measurements from an LWIR camera to be seamlessly included in machine vision measurements.
The Atomas Mini LVDS from Ionodes is an encoder module that provides high profile H.264 video compression and low latency IP video streaming at up to 1080p60. The compact form factor makes it ideally suited for direct integration into standard LVDS zoom camera blocks from Sony, Hitachi and others.
Sony Pregius’ IMX 255 and IMX 253 image sensors have been added to the Teledyne DALSA range of Genie Nano GigE Vision industrial cameras. With 9 megapixel (4KHD) and 12 Megapixel resolution respectively and available in both monochrome and colour, these four new models bring additional options for systems designers while retaining the high quality imaging, speed, build quality and low price point for which the Genie Nano family is renowned.
JAI has added 4k and 8k resolution models to the Sweep series of line scan cameras. These new cameras feature custom high-speed CMOS imagers and are among the fastest monochrome line scan cameras in the industry, enabling users to achieve even higher throughput to give new levels of productivity.
It is very important for us that every component used is supplied by a reliable partner with the appropriate know-how and the right range of product and services. For this reason, we have been cooperating with STEMMER IMAGING on all aspects of machine vision for many years.
