Picture ADLINK in the camera business

Boston, MA. ADLINK chose AIA's The Vision Show held here this week to provide a sneak peak at its new Neon-1040 smart camera. The company, with extensive offerings in the fields of test and measurement (with particular emphasis on PXI), applied computing, and automation, will soon and for the first time enter the camera business with its Neon-1040. The new smart camera features a 4-Mpixel global shutter sensor (CMOSIS CMV4000), Intel Atom E3845 quad-core processor, and support for lighting control. (A version will also be available with a 2-Mpixel image sensor.)

The camera offers 16-GB storage for image processing and archiving, IP67 compliance for protection in harsh environments, and a web-based configuration utility.

But, said ADLINK's Jim Blasius, solutions architect, the real innovation comes with the Neon's support of a slave camera to eliminate the need for a computing platform to provide additional interfaces, which reduces total solution cost. The new camera also offers GigE vision compliance to reduce application development time.

In addition to the quad-core processor, the camera features an FPGA and GPU. The GenICam-compatible camera supports software including MVtec HALCON and Stemmer Imaging Common Vision Blox.
