October 21, 2020 – Vision Components based its new VC DragonCam on the powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 processor. The company thus utilizes the computing power and price efficiency of a quad-core processor that has been proven in countless consumer products for an industrial-grade embedded vision system. The VC DragonCam board camera integrates an image sensor, various customary interfaces, and the processor, which runs a Debian-based operating system, on a small 65 x 40 mm footprint. This makes the programmable embedded vision system ideal for OEM designs.
VC DragonCam features twelve GPIOs, 1 GB memory, and up to 32 GB flash memory, with standard interfaces such as GBit Ethernet and RS-232 integrated onboard. Two adapter boards with additional interfaces provided as conventional sockets enable easy connection of peripherals, ideal for fast prototyping. Vision Components integrates high-end CMOS sensors in the new embedded vision system series, starting with Sony Pregius IMX 273. This global shutter sensor featuring a 1456 x 1088 pixel resolution and 225 fps frame rate is optimally suited for applications with short exposure times and high speeds. In addition to the monochrome model, a color camera is available on request. VC DragonCam models with additional Sony sensors are on the road map. As with all VC cameras, the manufacturer ensures long-term availability.
