OCTOBER 30, 2007--Imperx (Boca Raton, FL, USA), a provider of state-of-the-art digital cameras and frame grabbers for machine-vision systems, has hired five imaging-system developers. Collectively, the new team members bring Imperx more than 40 man-years of imaging system development expertise gained at NASA Imaging Technology Space Center at Florida Atlantic University (FAU). The team represents a variety of disciplines, including image processing, high-speed digital circuitry, ASIC and FGPA design, and high-definition cameras.

The additional staffing reflects the growth and expansion currently underway at Imperx. "We are building up our team and accelerating product development, especially in high-end imaging systems," said Imperx president Petko Dinev. "With the expertise and experience we now can field," said Dinev, "we can tackle even the most demanding imaging requirements. Whatever challenges our customers face, our team has probably seen them before and already solved them."

The five new hires will form the nucleus of a new division within Imperx, focused on high-end commercial and military-grade imaging-product development. All five have spent much of their careers at the NASA Imaging Technology Space Center at FAU.
