JUNE 15, 2009--The AViiVA II camera series features a new generation of sensors with resolution up to 4k pixels with various pitches. Available with Camera Link interface in either four or two taps, the camera delivers a dynamic range of 68 dB with up to 160-MHz operation in standard format (higher speeds available for custom versions). The first releases of the AViiVA II range will be the EM2 CL series two-tap Camera Link and the EM4 CL series four-tap Camera Link models. The EM4 CL utilizes new single line sensors, with either 4096 pixels (10 x 10-µm) or 2048 pixels (14 x 14-µm) and is capable of line rates up to 70 kHz. They maintain the mechanical footprint of the current AViiVA models -- specifically the 56 x 60-mm front face. The GenICam-compliant interface ensures smooth operation and high dynamic calibration enables automatic or manual mode control. The camera can also be customized, for example, with preprocessing at camera level, through its FPGA.

e2v raises the bar in the world of line scan cameras with the new AViiVA II

e2v today announced the launch of a new standard in inspection cameras for machine vision and high performance linear imaging. The AViiVA II series of cameras features a new generation of sensors, with resolution up to 4K pixels with various pitches. Available with Camera Link interface in either 4 or 2 taps, AViiVA II delivers a dynamic range of 68 dB up to 160 MHz operation.

e2v's AViiVA cameras have been leaders in the field of line scan imaging for over 10 years, due largely to their unique sensor technology, coupled with e2v's expertise in CCD sensor and camera design.

"Our AViiVA II single-line cameras address high performance requirements in the middle to high-end line-scan camera market," commented Christophe Robinet, Strategic Marketing Manager for Industrial Imaging Products at e2v, adding "the AViiVA II family perfectly complements the DiViiNA (for entry-level needs) and EliiXA (multi-line high-end imaging) cameras."

The first releases of the AViiVA II range will be the EM2 CL series, 2 tap Camera Link and the EM4 CL series, 4 tap Camera Link, operating at up to 160 MHz in standard format (higher speeds available for custom versions). The EM4 CL utilises e2v's new single line sensors, with either 4096 pixels, 10x10 µm or 2048 pixels, 14x14 µm and is capable of line rates up to 70 KHz. More camera types are to follow, with new sensors and Gigabit Ethernet interfacing.

AViiVA EM2 and EM4 CL cameras are easy to integrate with existing system designs since they maintain the mechanical footprint of the current AViiVA models; specifically the 56 mm x 60 mm front face. The GenICam compliant interface ensures smooth operation whilst the high dynamic calibration of the camera provides for automatic or manual mode control. The camera can also be easily customised, for example with pre-processing at camera level, through its powerful FPGA.

Samples are available now for evaluation.


e2v's objective is to be a global leader in the design and supply of specialised components and sub-systems that enable the world's leading systems companies to deliver innovative solutions for medical and science, aerospace and defence, and commercial and industrial markets.

e2v has 4 major product groups:
- High performance electron devices and subsystems for applications including defence electronic countermeasures, radiotherapy cancer treatment, and radar systems
- Advanced Imaging sensors and cameras for applications including industrial process control, dental X-ray systems, space science and life sciences
- Specialist semiconductors, including logic, memory and microprocessors for high reliability mission-critical programs in avionics, defence and telecommunications, sensor data acquisition, and high speed data conversion
- A range of professional sensing products for applications including fire, rescue and security thermal imaging, X-ray spectroscopy, and military surveillance, targeting and guidance

For the year ended 31 March 2009, e2v achieved sales of GBP233m and is listed on the London Stock Exchange. In October 2008 e2v acquired QP semiconductor, a leading US-based designer and supplier of specialty semiconductor components used in military and aerospace applications, establishing e2v's first US manufacturing base.

The Company is headquartered in the United Kingdom and has approximately 1800 employees in six production facilities across Europe and North America. e2v also operates a global network of sales and technical support offices, supported by local distributors and resellers.
