Vision Components exhibits MIPI cameras at ITE2019 and BIOMEDevice

Share this on social media:

At the ITE2019 show in Yokohama, Japan, Vision Components presents its extended range of high-end camera modules with a MIPI CSI-2 interface: now offering 10 different image sensors with resolutions up to 13 MP, the German manufacturer leads the global market for MIPI camera boards. These high-tech components enable compact, repeatable OEM designs and easy connection of image sensors to more than 20 single-board computers, including NVIDIA Jetson, DragonBoard, all Raspberry Pi boards, and all 96Boards. ITE2019 showcases include a demo application with a VC MIPI camera module connected to a Raspberry Pi 4 Model B. Vision Components supplies large numbers of MIPI boards at consumer prices. The accompanying VC MIPI cables support high data rates.

The manufacturer’s Linux-based, freely programmable embedded vision systems are also on display. Integrating a Xilinx Zynq SoC, these cameras and 3D line sensors autonomously carry out all kinds of image processing tasks. Their long-term availability guaranteed, they are a safe choice for industrial serial applications. The latest-generation VCnano3D-Z laser profiler features VC's proprietary ambient light suppression technology, which enables operation under up to 100,000 lux. The onboard FPGA calculates the 3D point cloud. The ARM processor can be programmed for further jobs like analyzing the grayscale image. Brand-new quad-core embedded cameras provide a substantial performance boost due to the onboard Snapdragon 410 processor: 1.2 GHz clock rate, 1 GB RAM, 16 GB flash memory. In addition to various built-in interfaces like GigE and 12 GPIOs, this board camera is available with optional extension boards that enable easy, flexible addition of an SD card slot and more interfaces: serial interface, I²C, RS232, DSI, RJ45 Ethernet adapter, and power interface.

Interested parties are invited to stop by the booth and discuss their vision application with the team. This industry event requires no advance registration. Admission is free.

BIOMEDevice show

This December, Vision Components exhibits at the BIOMEDevice show for the first time. The German embedded vision experts present recent additions to their lineup for vision OEMs: MIPI camera boards and quad-core embedded cameras. They also showcase a data matrix reader for surgical instruments, which is based on a VC embedded vision system. Vision Components is the leading provider of camera modules with MIPI interfaces, ready to ship 10 different camera boards now, with more to follow soon. These ultracompact, high-end, high-tech components enable easy connection of image sensors to more than 20 single-board computers, including NVIDIA Jetson, DragonBoard, all Raspberry Pi boards, and all 96Boards. The accompanying VC MIPI cables support high data rates. Highlighted new and upcoming MIPI modules for medtech applications, namely VC MIPI IMX183, VC MIPI IMX226, and VC MIPI IMX415, feature outstanding signal-to-noise ratios and sensitivity to light at an excellent price–performance ratio. First and foremost a manufacturer of cameras with onboard computing power, Vision Components also exhibits its latest generation of embedded vision systems with a Snapdragon 410 quad-core processor that provides a substantial performance boost. Featuring 1 GB RAM, 16 GB flash memory, and various interfaces as well as extension modules, these freely programmable cameras with a Linux operating system are ideal for any OEM design and for industrial serial production in particular.

One instance of OEM applications is also showcased at Vision Components’ BIOMEDevice booth: German sensor system manufacturer IOSS has developed a data matrix scanner for noncontact identification of surgical instruments. This code reader reads differently sized data matrix codes on even and uneven surfaces, on brushed, matte, and reflecting materials. The embedded intelligence of the smart VC board camera allows for a fully integrated, highly compact desktop device that identifies medical tools in no time at all, reliably reading even damaged codes or codes that have been worn down by years of use.
