e-con Systems has launched the qSmartAI80_CUQ610, a Qualcomm AI vision kit based on Sony STARVIS IMX415. This ready-to-deploy AI camera kit is ideal for image-based machine learning and deep learning models at the edge.

The solution is an AI vision kit comprising of its 4K MIPI low light camera module,VVDN’s SoM based on Qualcomm QCS610 SoC, and a carrier board. The 4K camera module is based on the Sony STARVIS IMX415 ultra low light sensor which assists in providing outstandingly clear images even at low light conditions. This kit is also engineered to provide powerful computing for on-device image processing with superior power and thermal efficiency. As well as the complete vision kit, the company also expands its customisation support for the camera, carrier board, software, and even add an enclosure. This allows customers to focus on their end application while the company takes full control of the vision kit and solution.

“The qSmartAI80_CUQ610 AI Vision kit marks a significant milestone as our first ever camera for Qualcomm QCS series of processors utilising the state-of-the-art Image Signal Processor of Qualcomm processors. The qSmartAI80_CUQ610 developed in partnership with VVDN Technologies, a premier electronics engineering and manufacturing company, is an ideal platform for our customers to develop next generation edge-AI-enabled embedded vision applications. The embedded vision applications require consistent image quality from the cameras irrespective of challenging light conditions and customers leverage e-con’s expert IQ tuning and solutioning capability to successfully launch their end products with shortest time-to-market" said Ranjith Kumar, senior product manager at e-con Systems.

Arun Kumar PN, director of Engineering at VVDN Technologies said, "We are excited to collaborate and work closely with e-con systems by providing them with our powerful SOM Solution based on QCS610 platform. VVDN has rich and deep expertise on Qualcomm’s Snapdragon chipsets on the AI/ML side. Our goal has always been to offer best in class experience to our customers through the innovative technologies With VVDN's QCS610 SOM, e-con's qSmartAI80_CUQ610 will allow customers to innovate, transform and scale through powerful edge intelligence."
