8MP Camera With On-Board Processing Unveiled at VISION Trade Fair

Critical Link unveiled the newest addition to its MityCAM® family at VISION, the leading world trade fair for machine vision, earlier this month in Stuttgart, Germany. The MityCAM-C8000 generated excitement among those who viewed demonstrations, particularly for its on-board processing and windowing capabilities.

“We’re pleased the MityCAM-C8000 was so well-received at VISION,” said Omar Rahim, Critical Link’s co-founder and Vice President of Imaging Solutions. “Our team has been working diligently to produce a camera with truly exceptional windowing abilities, running speeds, and image quality. We knew we had something special, but it is a meaningful success for us to have the industry embrace the technology so enthusiastically.”

MityCAM-C8000 offers an 8-megapixel (MP) resolution and incorporates a specialized half-sensor that allows the user to access multiple-window functions and process information at top speeds. The sensor was developed by CMOSIS, a leading supplier of advanced image sensors.

The MityCAM-C8000 is just one product in Critical Link’s family of highly configurable imaging and vision solutions. The platform is designed to be customizable with a variety of high-MityCAM_RGBperformance sensors, SoC processors featuring tightly integrated ARM and FPGA fabric, and multiple I/O options. MityCAM products deliver robust on-board processing capabilities that make them ideal for scientific imaging and vision applications involving high-throughput and advanced image processing. Customers benefit from the platform’s flexibility, with each building block tailorable to suit the application. Production-ready configurations include full cameras, complete 3-board sets, and partial board sets for customers who elect to design their own sensor or I/O boards.

Critical Link plans to continue the expansion of the MityCAM platform to meet the diverse needs of many industries and applications.
