International Vision Night

The Restaurant Plenum located right in the city centre of Stuttgart in the State Parliament building welcomes the machine vision community for a pleasant evening in a casual setting. Come and enjoy the recently reopened restaurant to meet and talk with customers, partners, colleagues and friends.
In good tradition exhibitors and visitors of the 2016 VISION show will meet the evening before the trade show opens its doors. The EMVA team and the premium sponsor of the evening MaxxVision are looking forward to welcome our previously registered guests on 7 November at 7 pm.

PLEORA brings high-performance imaging expertise to NBASE-T Alliance

Pleora Technologies is the first company from the machine vision industry to join the NBASE-T Alliance, a consortium collaborating on new technologies that extend the bandwidth capabilities of twisted-pair copper cabling using standard Ethernet technology.

The alliance has released the NBASE-T specification, which defines a new type of Ethernet signaling that boosts the speed of twisted-pair cabling up to 5 Gigabit per second (Gbps) – well beyond its designed limit of 1 Gbps – for distances up to 100 meters. Initially developed for wireless access points coping with increasing data requirements, NBASE-T technology is a natural evolution for high-performance imaging thanks to its increased bandwidth, low-cost cabling, and compatibility with existing GigE Vision software.

Case Study

Bosch serialization solution uses high-speed ID reader for counterfeit-proof medicines

Image The In-Sight 5613 vision system with high read rates is the heart of an inspection and identification module for track-and-trace solutions from Bosch Packaging Technology.
In late 2016 a new European counterfeiting directive is coming into force prohibiting the sale of prescription medicines without clear labeling. The pharmaceuticals industry is under pressure, since the new rules require manufacturers and distributors of medicines to use end-to-end track & trace solutions to ensure traceability along the entire supply chain..

FRAMOS – Python 1.3 MP and 5 MP Sensors with reduced frame Rrte

Image The Python family of ON Semiconductor is particularly suited for Machine Vision applications, Intelligent Traffic Systems (ITS), and inspection applications that require a high image quality and high speed with modern CMOS Global Shutter. The new Python 1300 and 5000 “P3” versions with half of the frame rate achieve 105 instead of 210 (Python 1300) and 46 instead of 100 frames per second (Python 5000).

FRAMOS develops miniature CMOS sensors for endoscopy and medical technology

Image For medical endoscope manufacturers, three criteria are particularly important when selecting the right image sensors: Minimal size with high resolution, long-term availability and an optimal price to performance ratio. The technological change from CCD to CMOS sensors also offers huge opportunities in medical diagnostics, however, there are no standard sensors for endoscopes. Mostly, customized sensors with a production quantity under 50.000 pieces are not rentable in production due to high on-off-costs.

The imaging experts at FRAMOS are now closing that gap. As a technical consultant and development partner for many years, FRAMOS will launch its own image sensors, especially designed for the needs of the medical industry and endoscopy at the MEDICA 2016. Read more ›
