New smart camera kit for rugged vision systems
Subs & Systems
Congatec has launched its first MIPI-CSI 2 Smart Camera Kit for vision systems at the edge of the IIoT. It is an application-ready kit for evaluation and deployment of MIPI-CSI 2-based rugged smart camera analytics in harsh outdoor, industrial, and in-vehicle environments. Designers benefit from an immediately deployable industrial-grade smart MIPI-CSI platform. Built with commercial, off-the-shelf available components, it makes development simpler and hastens the time to market of these solutions.
"MIPI-CSI 2 cameras are the perfect complement to the hardware-based video acceleration implemented on our Intel Atom processor based Pico-ITX boards," explains Jürgen Jungbauer, product line manager Single Board Computer at Congatec. "As we have enabled a Passthrough mode, the logic of the Intel Atom processor can handle the camera sensor directly, making video processing very flexible, fast and efficient. Having access to all this before OEM demands occur, makes it easy for our customers to explore new technology options."
