Smart camera works with Halcon machine-vision software

APRIL 22, 2009--The SM2-D1024-80/ VisionCam PS intelligent camera is now supported by Halcon 9.0 software, an integrated development environment, from MVTec Software.

APRIL 22, 2009--The SM2-D1024-80/ VisionCam PS intelligent camera is now supported by Halcon 9.0 software, an integrated development environment, from MVTec Software. The 1024 x 1024-pixel camera enables high-performance vision systems with computation performance comparable with standard CPU-based vision systems. The smart CMOS camera features a 1-GHz Texas Instruments DSP with 8000 MIPS, Gigabit Ethernet interface, multiple I/Os, 2-Gbyte microSD card, 256-Mbyte SDRAM, and real-time clock. Dynamic range up to 120 dB is achieved via LinLog and capture of up to 75 frames/s is possible at full resolution (faster frame rates are possible through horizontal and vertical windowing with ROI and multiple ROI).

PRESS RELEASE

Photonfocus camera SM2-D1024-80 is now supported by HALCON Embedded 9.0

We would like to announce that our intelligent camera SM2-D1024-80 is now supported by the HALCON 9.0 software from MVTec Software GmbH. Photonfocus AG is member of the MVTec partner program. Under this partnership the compatibility of the SM2-D1024-80 and the HALCON 9.0 software was tested and is now guaranteed.

What is the difference between the SM2-D1024-80 and other PC based vision systems? The Austrian Research Center has made a study of the performance of the intelligent camera in comparison with a traditional PC based solution, which is summarised in the attached presentation.

*Smart CMOS camera with 1 GHz TI DSP & LinLog
*Perfect match between Photonfocus CMOS sensor technology and the latest TI DSP platform technology from Strampe Systemelektronik
*Gigabit Ethernet interface
*Multi I/O, microSD card, RTC (real time clock)
*Several Software frameworks

The main features of the SM2-D1024-80 are:
*Software Support via Halcon Embeddd 9.0
*1024 x 1024 pixel resolution
*Dynamic range up to 120 dB via LinLog
*Fast global shutter
*Up to 75 fps @ full resolution
*Faster frame rates through horizontal and vertical windowing with ROI and Multiple ROI (MROI)
*GBit-Ethernet interface
*1 GHz DSP with 8000 MIPS
*2 GB microSD card
*256 MByte SDRAM
