VC PicoSmart

Share this on social media:

Probably the world's smallest embedded vision system – fully integrated in one board and hardly bigger than an image sensor module: VC picoSmart from Vision Components will premiere at embedded world 2021 DIGITAL (March 1–5), and the Photonics West digital forum (6-11 March). Only 22 mm x 23.5 mm in size, this board camera yet contains all components necessary for image processing: 1-megapixel CMOS sensor with global shutter, FPGA module, high-end FPU processor, and memory. An interface board can be connected via the integrated FPC connector. This makes VC picoSmart the perfect base for rapid development of cost-effective, application-specific, and compact vision sensors. Vision Components' long-proven VCRT operating system enables real-time image processing, for instance for object recognition, position control, barcode reading, as well as web edge and level control.

The German manufacturer, which celebrates its 25th anniversary in 2021, will also present new MIPI camera modules at the virtual tradeshow. These are designed for flexible embedded vision designs and easy connection to CPU boards such as NVIDIA Jetson, the NXP i.MX 8M Mini/Nano/Plus processor family, and Raspberry Pi Compute Modules. Additional image sensors are continuously being added to the lineup of VC MIPI modules, such as high-end sensors from the Sony Pregius and Sony Starvis series with high resolutions, light sensitivities, and frame rates. At embedded world, Vision Components will also announce VC MIPI camera modules with the latest Sony SWIR sensors. Interested parties are invited to acquaint themselves with the VC solutions for embedded vision and to arrange individual chats with the team.
