Critical Link to Raffle Two Embedded Development Kits at Photonics West 2019

Enter the drawing at Critical Link’s South Hall booth #240 during SPIE Photonics West, Moscone Center, San Francisco, Feb. 5 – 7, 2019.

Syracuse, N. Y. – Critical Link, a leading provider of electronics and engineering services for industrial embedded imaging applications, will raffle off two of its most popular embedded development kits at Photonics West 2019. Visitors to Critical Link’s booth #240 may enter to win one of two MitySOM-5CSx development kits.

Two different kits will be featured and raffled at the booth. The first is the MitySOM-5CSX Embedded Vision Development Kit, which accelerates vision applications, includes a BCON Dart® camera module from Basler, a world leader in vision technology. Developers of machine vision applications benefit from the out-of-the-box integration of Critical Link’s Cyclone V SoC System on Module and Basler’s BCON Dart camera, by getting to market faster with lower upfront costs than previously possible.

For developers requiring other cameras or sensors, Critical Link will also raffle one of its standard MitySOM-5CSx Development Kits. The kit is intended for development of any embedded electronics application, including embedded imaging. It features an array of interfaces and expansion headers such as USB, Debug RS232 to USB Console, Full HSMC Expansion Connector, Partial HSMC Expansion Connector, PCI-e x4 Expansion Header, MMC/SD Card, Gigabit Ethernet and Dual CAN Bus interfaces.

The company will also be demonstrating two recently released technologies: the MityCAM-C50000 and the MitySOM-A10S Image Processing Board. The MityCAM-C50000 system is an evaluation platform for the CMV50000 high speed image sensor from ams / CMOSIS, with 47.5MP resolution running at 30 frames per second, and multiple interfaces including USB3 Vision® and HDMI preview as standard, with custom options to include CoaXPress, Camera Link, GigE Vision, and others.

The MitySOM-A10S Image Processing Board is an open architecture design featuring dual core Cortex-A9 ARMs with up to 480KLE user-programmable FPGA fabric, DDR4 memory, and 12 high-speed transceiver pairs. It is an ideal solution for machine vision and scientific imaging applications. Both the MityCAM-C50000 and MitySOM-A10S support OpenCL™ and high-level synthesis (HLS) tools for accelerating design cycles and targeting C/C++ code to the FPGA, and provide unparalleled ease of customization for complex imaging platforms.

As the leading event for OEMs developing scientific and industrial imaging systems, Photonics West draws attendees working in areas of biomedical, test & measurement, unmanned systems, energy & utilities, and many others. Critical Link’s System on Modules and Embedded Imaging Platforms are designed for industrial performance applications across these areas, ensuring a faster time to market, lower development costs, and long-term availability.

All products mentioned here are available from Critical Link and selected partners, beginning January 2019. Please visit www.criticallink.com or email info@criticallink.com to learn more.
