CCD vs CMOS, see smaller details with CMOS cameras

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).

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

In November 2013, Microchip Technology Inc., a leading provider of microcontroller, mixed-signal, analog and Flash-IP solutions, acquired EqcoLogic (, an innovator in equalizer and coaxial transceiver products and technologies. EqcoLogic was a privately held, fabless semiconductor company based in Brussels, Belgium.

Multiple CoaXPress IP Core providers eases integration for further adoption

The increased adoption of CoaXPress started from the increased bandwidth capabilities and simplified cabling.  It has continued with the ease of integration and the availability of compliant components.  For instance, there is now a wide selection in frame grabber providers.  The multiple providers of the CoaXPress IP cores further support implementation to give system designers…
