Basis for the Z Smart Cameras is the ZYNQ® module, a Dual Core ARM CortexTM-A9 module with 2 x 866 MHz and integrated FPGA from Xilinx®.
As with all VC Smart Cameras, these processors provide the necessary computing capacity to achieve VC standards: Extreme high-speed in real-time.
The ARM/Linux Smart Cameras are ideally suited for use in industry, but, of course, also for other applications.
For applications with rough environmental conditions, a protective housing is available. For 3D applications the board cameras are available as stereo vision versions with two external sensor boards. Several CMOS sensors and resolutions are included in the product range.
VC Linux, the new operating system, takes care of hard- and software interaction. And, last but not least, the Z models provide a special feature: On request, the FPGA can be programmed to achieve a considerable speed boost. With that, the image processing can be executed up to twenty times faster than without FPGA support.
