ISS Yokohama: Embedded Vision Made in Germany

May 15, 2019 - Vision Components presents its portfolio of OEM cameras at the Image Sensing Show in Yokohama, Japan. The brand-new line of ultracompact MIPI camera boards is designed for applications with many cameras such as autonomous driving, UAVs, Smart City, medical technology, and laboratory automation. The MIPI modules interface to more than 20 CPU boards, including all Raspberry Pi boards, all 96Boards, NVIDIA TX1 and TX2. They are high-end, high-tech components, designed and manufactured in Germany for easy integration and maintenance-free operation. Vision Components can supply MIPI cameras in large numbers at consumer prices.

The showcase furthermore focusses on embedded vision systems. Featuring a powerful Xilinx Zynq SoC with a 2 x 866 MHz ARM processor and an FPGA, these intelligent cameras can be programmed for all kinds of image processing tasks. Vision Components offers board cameras and enclosed models, embedded stereo vision systems and laser profilers along with software libraries for various computer vision applications. OEMs can choose from a wide range of image sensors for both the MIPI cameras and the embedded systems, including Sony Pregius CMOS sensors with up to 13 MP. The new embedded laser profiler VCnano3D-Z with a Xilinx Zynq SoC, is also on show. Featuring Vision Components' proprietary ambient light suppression technology, it operates precisely 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.
