Versatile Machine Vision Camera Development Kit

Versatile Machine Vision Camera Development Kit 1.png

EasyMVC, our Easy Machine Vision Camera Kit, helps hardware engineers and software developers evaluate machine vision technology and build prototype cameras. At its most powerful, the kit can be used for pre-purchase evaluation of our intellectual property cores for SLVS-EC, GigE Vision, USB3 Vision, and CoaXPress.

The kit consists of an image sensor board, an FPGA board, and an interface board, plus a choice of cutting-edge CMOS image sensors, FPGAs and interface cards. Choose from the models listed below. The EasyMVC Sony IMX420MS/CS C10 HDMI U3V Kit, for example, gives you a Sony IMX420 CMOS sensor card, an Intel Cyclone 10GX FPGA Card, and an interface card ready for the USB3 Vision and HDMI 2.0 standards.

 

Other kits include the components, software and intellectual property you need to evaluate and develop for CoaXPress 1.1.1 or 2.0, 10GigE Vision, or GigE Vision, and you can mix or match the boards that you want.

Highlights

 

The IMX421 offers 2.86 Mpixels, capturing HD images at frame rates up to 371fps, and a staggering 780fps max at lower resolutions.
 

The IMX420, with its 7.10 Mpixels is a significant step up, with many applications now requiring more resolution, either to see finer details, or to be able to image a much larger area, and maintain good resolution over the whole area, this sensor is a perfect fit.

 

The IMX530 for the Easy MVC kit is releasing later this year. The IMX530 offers an impressive 24.55Mpixels. It is a next generation Pregius S part, with the signal processing stacked on the backside illuminated sensor it creates a very compact sensor for the resolution.
