Munich, Germany - At the Vision 2008 trade fair, VRmagic presented a FPGA camera with up to four pixel-synchronous sensors. The CMOS sensors with global shutter are connected to the camera by an LVDS data cable and can be freely positioned. The image data is coordinated on a FPGA module with at least 256 MByte RAM. The multi-sensor camera can produce pixel-synchronous images from several positions, as required for 3D reconstruction, for example. Light-section-, Gray-code- and phase shift processes can even be applied to moving objects when using the multi-sensor camera.
FPGA camera features four image sensors
The German manufacturer will therefore further extend itsd existing range of over seventy components for industrial image processing. These components are characterised by user-friendly functions, such as the possibility of saving usr configurations on the camera, access to the raw sensor data, as well as continuous adjustment of all sensor parameters. All frame grabbers and cameras are supported by the same API, so that it is possible to change to other components without any additional programming.
