Case Study

Extended Depth of Focus (EDoF) using a focus tunable lens

ImageSilicon Software in partnership with Optotune, has created an enhanced “Extended Depth of Focus” (EDoF) functionality using a focus tunable lens for real-time operation. From a continuous image acquisition sequence of up to 20 (currently) individual frames with varying focal length, a sharp final image with an expanded range of focus is generated in real-time.

Tamron’s First Block Camera Featuring 30x Zoom and Global Shutter Imaging

Image Tamron’s Block Camera MP2030M-GS is a hands-on Embedded Vision Solution for High-Quality CMOS Global Shutter Imaging for Motion Applications.
Tamron, a long-standing lens manufacturer, has launched its very first global shutter block camera. The MP2030M-GS is equipped with Sony’s IMX265, an industrial grade 1/1.8” Global Shutter CMOS sensor. This camera is combined with a built-in high-power 30x zoom lens and is suitable for both wide angle and telephoto pictures. In addition, the advanced feature set makes the new Tamron block camera a perfect 24/7 candidate for both day and night conditions in security, surveillance or traffic applications. Read more ›

Deep Learning High Performance Solution on FPGA Frame Grabber

Image eep learning has proven to be a successful solution in many applications when environmental parameters become variable or algorithms become complex. For use in production, there is now a solution that can handle bandwidths in excess of 200 MB/s. In keeping with the requirements for high computing power, the microEnable 5 marathon deepVCL was specially developed, on which larger neural networks can be calculated without delay using a more powerful FPGA.
The deepVCL is a Camera Link frame grabber of the programmable marathon V-series. With an input bandwidth of up to 850 MB/s, support for all Camera Link formats and the PCI Express x4 bus interface, it can be used for all industrial applications. Read more ›

Snappy 2M CMOS image sensor for high-speed scanning and barcode reading

Image Teledyne e2v announces Snappy 2 megapixel, a new CMOS image sensor designed for barcode reading and other 2D scanning applications. The sensor uniquely combines full HD resolution, a 2.8μm low-noise global shutter and advanced features for fast and economic decoding, all within a small optical format.
From pixel performance, to integrated real-time features, every aspect of the Snappy sensor has been optimised to enable fast and accurate scanning of 1D and 2D barcodes. This enables scanning platforms to offer enhanced productivity and throughput in logistics, sorting, retail POS, and many other associated verticals. Read more ›
