The first ADAS detecting people by means of reflective workwear
Focusing medical technology, diagnostic, and laboratory applications, we launche a series of new MIPI camera modules that make proven high-end sensors accessible for integration with a wide range of embedded processor platforms.
These new VC MIPI® modules feature high image resolutions, high light sensitivity, low noise, and fast frame rates, combined with the advantages of the MIPI CSI-2 interface:
They are cost-effective, low-power camera boards that can be connected to various embedded processors. The VC MIPI® series is fully in line with the ongoing trend towards miniaturization and edge computing. The series design enables vision solutions with an optimal price–performance ratio. We use a select choice of tried and tested, long-term available Sony Pregius® and Starvis® sensors for medical applications. Since these sensors have no native MIPI interface, we have developed a MIPI converter that is integrated into the ultracompact camera modules.
New modules include VC MIPI IMX183 with a 20-megapixel resolution, 4K video support, and a global reset shutter – ideal for applications requiring maximum image quality and speed. The Sony Starvis® sensor's backside illuminated (BSI) technology ensures high light sensitivity and a wide contrast range. VC MIPI IMX226 and VC MIPI IMX178 with 12 MP and 6.4 MP resolution respectively exhibit the same technologies. We have also integrated Sony Pregius® IMX250 series sensors for applications with high frame rates and IMX260 series sensors for price-sensitive applications with lower speeds. The new MIPI modules are suitable for commercial solutions and long-term available like all VC cameras. Additional VC MIPI® camera modules for medtech and life science applications are already on the road map. The manufacturer also completes customized developments.
Our new drivers delivered as source code allow developers to connect all VC MIPI® camera modules easily and quickly to the powerful NVIDIA® boards that are a perfect fit for AI projects.
We have added a new starter pack to our MIPI product range for embedded vision projects: users simply connect the camera module and MIPI cable to their NVIDIA Jetson Nano Developer Kit, and they are ready set to start application development.
