Ethernet update for intelligent cameras
21 March 2012
Application software and firmware updates are available via Ethernet for programmable intelligent cameras from VRmagic. The current software version and complete camera firmware can now be transferred to the camera via Ethernet.
With a standard Debian Linux operating system and full access to the ARM9/DSP DaVinci processor from Texas Instruments, the intelligent cameras from VRmagic provide developers with a convenient platform for programming their own applications. Algorithms can be developed with standard environments such as Visual Studio or Code Composer Studio and transferred to the camera by means of cross-compilers. The host system and camera have the same API. The components are equipped with 256MB RAM and a 512MB flash module. The supported interfaces include Ethernet, USB 2.0 Host, RS232 and general purpose I/O, analogue video output as well as optionally digital video output and audio interface. Available designs range from cameras in housings and PCB cameras through to special OEM designs with up to four pixel-synchronous remote sensors.
