White papers

A proposal to break the speed ceiling of GigE Vision in a standardised and reliable way to meet the next generation of sensor sizes and speeds.

This White Paper details why data is the core of any deep learning-based application, and that the tools for managing data and working with the deep learning algorithm are paramount to obtaining good results.

This white paper presents a first-ever automated approach to digitalize spectral properties found on forensic trace carriers. By using high-performance Excelitas lenses and AI-driven software the few deviating traces on a trace carrier can be identified which can be decisive to solve a crime. Such traces are called rare traces in forensics.
