The S12MP is a technologically advanced, high performance, sturdy and compact Smart Camera that is realised to meet the most complex Machine Vision requirements. Fully designed, developed and manufactured by Tattile, the S12MP Smart Camera features a very high processing capability and a sophisticated technology in a compact product with limited dimensions. The Smart Camera is based on a powerful image processing architecture, the Xilinx Zynq 7030 including a Kintex7 FPGA with 125 K elements allowing images to be acquired and pre-processed at very high speed; and a Cortex-A9 Dual Core 667MHz processor that processes the data, performs the controls required by the application and sends the results either to the machine or to the user line. Through an integrated SD card the image storage capability reaches up to 32 GB.
The exclusive combination of the sensor and the Zynq architecture allows reaching an acquisition speed up to 300 frames/second (fps) at full resolution that can be further increased by partializing the acquisition and therefore reducing the image size. At the same time, the 12 Megapixel CMOS Global Shutter image sensor allows even very small objects to be detected. Despite its very compact size of 80 x 80 x 60 mm without lens support and 80 x 80 x 103.55 mm with lens support the processing power resulting from the synergy of the Dual Core CPU and the FPGA makes the S12MP a top range on the market from the performance standpoint. Due to these features, the S12MP is mainly targeted to applications where high speed is required in the most diversified industries and applications, including the semiconductor industry and the 2D and 3D analysis.
