Preparing for Vision 2016 in Stuttgart – Accurate fingerprint identification demo using a high full well capacity camera

Posted by Benny Koene on Thu, Oct 20, 2016

An interview with Egidijus Auksorius, Langevin institute

In the last two weeks we posted two blogs related to our multi-camera over CoaXPress demo, this week we give some background information on one of our other demos which will show the Adimec Q-2HFW high full well camera. For the background information we interviewed Egidijus Auksorius from the Langevin institute. He will be present in the Adimec booth at Vision 2016 Stuttgart to show how he uses the Q-2HFW in a Full Field Optical Coherence Tomography (FF-OCT) setup to accurately measure your fingerprint.

LLTECH Records Major Progress In Prostate Cancer Detection And Diagnosis - using Adimec High Full Well Capacity Camera

Posted by Gretchen Alper on Mon, Oct 17, 2016

This article is reposted from Biospace.com.  The LLTECH FFOCT system utilizes the Adimec high full well capacity camera: the Adimec Q-2HFWC-CXP.  Adimec and LLTECH first collaborated on the CAReIOCA project, a European Union sponsored FP7 project, was started in early 2013 to provide pathologists and/or surgeons non-invasive optical imaging at the cellular level within the human body in real time.  As a result, Adimec developed the Q-2HFWC-CXP camera which offers 2 Megapixels at over 550 fps via CoaXPress, offering an industry unique high full well capability of 2 million electrons per pixel.

Preparing for Vision 2016 in Stuttgart – a sneak peak at our multi-cameras over CoaXPress demo, part 2

Posted by Benny Koene on Thu, Oct 13, 2016

So  last week we showed an image of our multi-cameras over CoaXPress demo. In the image, some cameras were rotated counter clockwise but the images they recorded looked to rotate the scene clockwise. As promised we will explain this effect in the blog of this week. Read More

Preparing for Vision 2016 in Stuttgart – a sneak peak at our multi-cameras over CoaXPress demo

Posted by Benny Koene on Thu, Oct 6, 2016

We are well into our prepartions for the 2016 Vision Show in Stuttgart this November, and we are excited to demonstrate our new products.

Here are some sneak preview photographs made while our support engineers were doing some initial tests for the demo setup with 4(!) of our new 5 Mp CoaXPress cameras together with 1 of our new 25 Mp CoaXPress camera on only 2(!) frame grabbers in a single PC.

How to select CoaXPress cables for machine vision and multi-camera systems

Posted by Gretchen Alper on Tue, Oct 4, 2016

The continued adoption of CoaXPress in machine vision inspection and metrology systems is partially due to the higher video data rates enabled.  But in multi-camera systems, the smaller more flexible cables are an advantage to fit in tight spaces and enable moving heads.

Choosing between the On Semi Vita 25k or Python 25k image sensor based cameras

Posted by Gretchen Alper on Fri, Sep 23, 2016

With the new Python25k image sensor from On Semi, there are now more great options for 25 Megapixel high-performance machine vision cameras.  Now the question is whether to go with a Vita25k or a Python 25k based camera.

More CoaXPress frame grabber options and other accessories to enable fastest data rates

Posted by Benny Koene on Fri, Sep 9, 2016

As the adoption of CoaXPress continues to grow in machine vision and global security systems, more and more cameras and frame grabbers have come on the market.  The majority of system designers are making the move to CoaXPress to take advantage of ever faster CMOS image sensors, to reduce cabling constraints present with Camera Link or USB 3.0, or to prepare for easy future upgrades. Here we share product updates from some of the CoaXPress frame grabber manufacturers in alphabetic order.

Image data transport: from pixel to PC by CoaXPress Part 2

Posted by Benny Koene on Fri, Aug 26, 2016

Translating data rate and frame rate

In our previous blog we analyzed the image data transport from the generation at the pixel level up to the transport via the CoaXPress cable towards the frame grabber as part of understanding the data rate required for the imaging system and where the limitations may be. Here we will analyze the data transport through the frame grabber to the host computer. In this part you will find the answer to the question: what is the influence of the frame grabber and host computer on the frame rate of the camera?

Image data transport: from pixel to PC by CoaXPress Part 1

Posted by Benny Koene on Fri, Aug 19, 2016

Translating data rate and frame rate

Before an image from a vision system can be stored or processed in a host computer, it already has passed several other processing and transport steps. In this two part article we will clarify the data flow and show you how you can get an estimate how the data rate correlates with the frame rate. We will also provide some tips on how to discover the data rate limiting factor in your vision system.
