OEM metrology cameras enabling 2 Gigapixels per second at low power – how is it possible?

The state-of-the-art high-resolution global shutter CMOS image sensors (and subsequent metrology cameras) enable performance leaps for many measurement methods relied on in semiconductor and electronics process control systems.  BUT, the extreme data rates present major challenges for OEMs in their new innovative systems. For camera builders these data rates are just as challenging in terms…

How to simplify OEM metrology camera integration through image sensor alignment, mounting holes, and more

With the QUARTZ Q-12A180, we not only redesigned the camera platform to deliver the fastest frame rates from the latest generation high-resolution image sensors, but also took extra steps to simplify integration. In addition to using automated alignment tools in production for better alignment of the image sensor with respect to the front of the camera,…

Throwback Thursday – Video Enhancement Mode – advancements in image processing

With the ever decreasing size of computer chips and the large availability of FPGAs it is relatively easy to integrate image processing steps within the camera module. Take for example our TMX series which is designed for outdoor observation/viewing applications. These camears are provided with a Video Enhancement Mode to optimize the video signal for…
