Vision Components premieres the first prototype of its latest generation of embedded vision systems offering a substantial performance boost at Embedded World in Nuremberg, Germany. The onboard quad-core processor, Qualcomm's Snapdragon 410, is clocked at 1.2 GHz. The board camera features a Gbit Ethernet interface, 12 GPIOs, 1 GB RAM, and 16 GB flash memory. Two optional add-on boards provide the embedded system with an SD card slot and more interfaces: serial interface, I²C, RS232, DSI, RJ45 Ethernet adapter, and power interface. Vision Components integrates high-end CMOS sensors, starting with Sony Pregius IMX 296, which features a resolution of 1440 x 1080 pixel and 60 fps frame rate. More image sensors will follow shortly. Customers can place inquiries for the new cameras as of now; delivery will commence in Q1/2020. As with all VC cameras, the manufacturer guarantees long-term availability. This makes the freely programmable embedded systems with a Linux operating system ideal for any OEM design and for industrial serial production in particular.
