NOVEMBER 8--Leutrek Vision Inc. (www.leutrek.com) has released its LVmPC, a versatile, low-cost, compact embedded vision system based on standard PC technology. LVmPC works with virtually any camera (digital, analog, color, monochrome, USB, USB 2, FireWire, Camera Link) by using the standard interfaces existing on the internal PC motherboard or through optional frame grabber or PCMCIA adaptor cards. Up to four user-selected PMC add-in cards can be used simultaneously in the same system providing versatility in a 3.5 x 3.6 x 7.2-in. format.
LVmPC is 100% PC-compatible and runs Windows 9x/NT/2000/XP + Embedded versions, Linux, or VxWorks. It uses the latest ultralow-voltage Pentium III processor with 512k cache (478-pin uFC-BGA) and the Intel I815E chipset (Celeron with 256k cache versions are also available). LVmPC is equipped standard with FireWire, Ethernet, VGA (DVI-I), CompactFlash I/II, USB ports, and serial port like any standard full-size PC.
LVmPC is the latest revision of Leutron Vision's PC based embedded vision system previously named PentiCam. This new version has been designed to increase the overall performance and lower cost significantly.
