The new Allied Vision 1 product line was especially designed for embedded vision applications but fulfilling the high standards of industrial and scientific image processing also referred to as “machine vision”. It is full range of digital cameras that provide the best of both worlds: Broad sensor variety, advanced image pre-processing, compact form factor, low power consumption, industrial standards, excellent price/performance ratio.
The unique ALVIUM® technology is the core of the Allied Vision 1 product line. It consists in a proprietary chip design optimized for advanced digital imaging combined with a comprehensive image processing library (IPL) resulting from more than 25 years of expertise in machine vision.
This innovative technology enables Allied Vision to design a full range of cameras that provide a wealth of on-board image pre-processing functions in a small form factor, with an intelligent power management and at a lower cost than conventional FPGA-based machine vision cameras. All that without compromising on image quality or camera performance and durability. By shifting image correction and optimization tasks from the host to the camera’s ALVIUM® IPL system engineers can free CPU capacity on their processor for alternative processing tasks.
Two camera families with MIPI CSI-2 and USB3 Vision
The first cameras building on the new platform are the Allied Vision 130 and 140 series. Both series are available with MIPI CSI-2 and USB3 Vision interface and a large choice of sensors. They are both powered by the ALVIUM® technology.
