Interview with Microchip Technology about the growth of CoaXPress in Machine Vision and other industries and future plans

Posted by Gretchen Alper on Fri, Jan 29, 2016

In November 2013, Microchip Technology Inc., a leading provider of microcontroller, mixed-signal, analog and Flash-IP solutions, acquired EqcoLogic (http://www.microchip.com/pagehandler/en-us/press-release/microchip-acquires-eqcologic.html), an innovator in equalizer and coaxial transceiver products and technologies. EqcoLogic was a privately held, fabless semiconductor company based in Brussels, Belgium.

How to make sure the camera you buy is CoaXPress compliant

Posted by Gretchen Alper on Fri, Jan 22, 2016

With the increased adoption of CoaXPress by inspection and metrology system designers, there are many new CoaXPress cables, frame grabbers, and cameras coming to the market. To make sure that all of the components work seamlessly together, there is a detailed procedure outlined by JIIA for official certification.  This involves thorough testing for compliance to ensure full operability with all other certified products.

Why JIIA focuses on connectors with the CoaXPress standard

Posted by Gretchen Alper on Thu, Jan 14, 2016

With interface standards, the supported connectors are included.  It might seem that this would not be complex and the possibilities would be limited.  But if it not controlled there can easily be over 100 different types of connectors making designing, purchasing, and upgrading confusing and risky.

We have talked a lot about improvements in CMOS image sensors in low light imaging capabilities which are particularly helpful in outdoor applications such as long-range observation, surveillance, and global security. The image sensor parameters relevant to low light are QE (Quantum efficiency), read noise, dark current, uniformity, and MTF (in NIR)
