Kodak’s Newest Imagers with Global Electronic Shutter Provide Base for High-Speed Smart Cameras
Nashua, NH (WiredPRNews.com) The FastCamera-CCD series by FastVision is the latest series of high-speed smart cameras based on the newest Kodak Interline KAI CCD imagers with an global electronic shutter. These exceptional cameras have a high-speed, scaleable, integrated FPGA and processor subsystem with memory to enable stand-alone high speed in-camera image processing. When integrated with a camera link framegrabber/coprocessor board, the resulting system capabilities are expanded by adding processors and memory on the board according to the needs of the user.
The series of cameras offered by FastVision, supports a wide range of custom user selected ROIs and operating modes. FastCamera-CCD cameras boast a wide range of available real-time algorithms such as image storage of up to 800 full size frames at full speed without compression, image averaging, by pixel gain and offset calibration, image sub-sampling, convolution filtering and much more. The system can also be outfitted with dedicated software to perform gauging, tooling and pattern matching in the camera, making it a stand-alone system for real-time, flexible measurement and pattern analysis applications.
The first in this series is the FC34, a 640×480 sensor that can capture at over 210 fps. This smart camera includes a Nexperia PNX1502/ PNX1702 image processor/FPGA/memory subsystem that can process image data from the sensor in real time. Programming tools allow this camera to be a customizable stand-alone image processing system for complex applications including object recognition, defect classification and customer imaging algorithms. Other cameras in the series offer equally impressive capabilities that meet the most challenging demands of the fast image processing.
As a leader in the fast imaging industry, FastVision also offers a range of other smart cameras and image processors. FastVision specializes in high-speed cameras that can be integrated with laptops or small computers are essential to the success of many projects. Cameras that can capture data instantly and process it in real-time are becoming the industry standards. To provide the changing industry with these high performance products, FastVision offers a range of FastCamera Series cameras that process information in real-time and are compatible with many portable computer devices.
