December 13, 2019 – Vision Components will present its extended range of high-end camera modules with a MIPI CSI-2 interface at the 2020 SPIE Photonics West exhibition in San Francisco. Vision Components has even integrated non-native MIPI sensors in MIPI camera modules, using a specially developed adapter board. Examples for these are IMX250 and IMX252 sensors from the Sony Pregius series, which is characterized by high light sensitivity and very low dark noise. These high-tech components enable compact, repeatable OEM designs and easy connection of image sensors to more than 20 single-board computers, including NVIDIA Jetson, DragonBoard, all Raspberry Pi boards, and all 96Boards.
Now offering 10 different image sensors with resolutions up to 13 MP, the German manufacturer leads the global market for MIPI camera boards. Photonics West showcases include a demo application with a VC MIPI camera module connected to a Raspberry Pi. Vision Components supplies large numbers of MIPI boards at consumer prices. The accompanying VC MIPI cables support high data rates.
The manufacturer’s Linux-based, freely programmable embedded vision systems are also on display. Integrating a Xilinx Zynq SoC, these cameras and 3D line sensors autonomously carry out all kinds of image processing tasks. Their long-term availability guaranteed, they are a safe choice for industrial serial applications. Brand-new quad-core embedded cameras provide a substantial performance boost due to the onboard Snapdragon 410 processor: 1.2 GHz clock rate, 1 GB RAM, 16 GB flash memory. In addition to various built-in interfaces like GigE and 12 GPIOs, this board camera is available with optional extension boards that enable easy, flexible addition of an SD card slot and more interfaces: serial interface, I²C, RS232, DSI, RJ45 Ethernet adapter, and power interface.

About Vision Components
Vision Components is a leading international manufacturer of embedded vision systems. The freely programmable cameras with powerful onboard CPUs perform image processing tasks on their own without the need for an additional computer. Vision Components offers OEMs versatile Linux-based embedded systems for 2D and 3D image processing, supplied as board cameras or in protective casings. These are complemented by a growing range of ultracompact MIPI camera boards, which connect to a variety of different CPU boards. In addition, Vision Components offers software libraries and develops customized solutions on request.
The team of experts can draw on extensive knowledge and over 20 years of experience with imaging applications. The company based in Ettlingen in southwestern Germany was founded in 1996 by Michael Engel, the inventor of the first industrial-grade intelligent camera. More world premieres followed, including the world's first intelligent vision sensors and the first-ever embedded 3D laser profiler. Today, Vision Components has sales offices in the United States and Japan and works with local partners in over 25 countries to provide consistent customer focus and readily available expertise throughout the world.
