DesignCore D3RCM camera modules

D3 Engineering has introduced a new line of rugged camera modules for automotive and industrial vision. The new DesignCore® D3RCM Rugged Camera Modules integrate OmniVision® or SONY® image sensors with Texas Instruments’ FPD-Link™ III SerDes for full digital performance and superior resolution. The miniature cameras in sealed enclosures are designed to meet IP69K standards.

D3 has drawn on its extensive experience in embedded vision and autonomous systems to create the new product line. Automotive vision applications include Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) such as surround view, backup camera, mirror replacement, and blind spot monitoring. Industrial vision applications include unattended surveillance systems, process automation, and machine vision.

DesignCore D3RCM Rugged Camera Modules offer the smallest size, very light weight (less than 10 g excluding lens), and excellent thermal management. Several models feature on-sensor and internal image signal processing (ISP). Power over coax (PoC), with multiplexed video stream and control channel, simplifies system integration.

The rugged camera modules are manufactured with actively aligned optics and 100% unit inspection. The sealed housings have integrated FAKRA connectors. They are designed and manufactured to deliver cost-effective vision in high-performance applications.

Qualification tested and fully validated models are available for automotive production. Other models are production-ready for customer validation. The cameras are available in volumes from 10 to 10,000 or more.
