The fourth FRAMOS® Tech Days event was a complete success - 96% of the participants were satisfied or very satisfied with this technology platform for vision developers. Throughout the two-day event, Sony Japan, Intel, ON Semiconductor, and other FRAMOS partners were on-hand. They presented the latest technologies in the fields of image sensors and embedded vision, 3D imaging, artificial intelligence, and image processing in Munich, Germany May 22-23, 2019.
FRAMOS, the leading partner for image processing solutions, is expanding its embedded vision product ecosystem from June 2019 with six new modules for CMOS sensors from Sony and ON Semiconductor. With a multi-sensor platform, FRAMOS is launching a completely new solution to support stereo, dual stereo and all-round applications. The new platform now allows the connection of up to four sensor modules to the NVIDIA Jetson TX2 development kit or alternatively to the Jetson AGX Xavier development kit for high-end applications.
Global vision partner FRAMOS® will present its embedded vision portfolio including their Ecosystem of sensor modules and Intel® RealSense™ Technology at the Embedded Vision Summit. The industry leading event showcases computer vision innovations and will take place May 20-23rd in Santa Clara, California.
“Stacked Pixel” Technology brings High Performance for Miniaturized Embedded Vision - The newly developed Pregius S line is the 4th generation of Sony CMOS image sensors incorporating Pregius™ technology. The Pregius S reaches higher performance in a smaller package with stacked image sensor technology that is based on Sony’s proprietary Global Shutter function, and a back-illuminated pixel structure. This technology allows smart embedded applications in industrial vision to benefit from imaging performance that is improved by 1.7X, while the form factor of sensor design is reduced by 40 percent. First samples of Sony’s new Pregius S line will be available from global vision partner FRAMOS®.
The fourth FRAMOS Tech Days conference will be held from May 22 to 23 in Munich, Germany, and will offer the ideal platform for vision system developers to share information and exchange ideas. This conference will feature exclusive workshop presentations by Sony Semiconductor Solutions, ON Semiconductor, Intel®, SocioNext, and FRAMOS AI about current vision developments, new products and technologies, and, future trends and innovations. The conference will focus on Embedded Vision, 3D imaging, and a broad variety of leading-edge applications.
After having revolutionized vision-based inspection with award-winning global shutter IMX250 image sensor with Polarsens™ technology, Sony Semiconductor Solutions Corporation has recently launched a new on-chip polarizer, the higher resolution IMX253MZR/MYR CMOS Global Shutter sensor. The 1.1” type format sensor brings a 12.37 Megapixels resolution with a 3.45 µm pixel size and four-directional polarizer directly applied to the photodiode of the image sensor chip. The IMX253 with Polarsens™ technology reaches frame rates of 64fps at 10 bits. The polarization sensor targets various industrial applications where visibility and sensing are difficult.
Select Intel® and Sony products can now be ordered directly from the new FRAMOS web store. Quick access to directly available vision technology is offered by this global vision partner. The new web store can be accessed at shop.framos.com with plans to extend it further with product lines targeting Embedded Vision applications in the future.
Leading sensor manufacturer, ON Semiconductor, has launched the AR0221 “Starlight” imager providing excellent image quality for security and surveillance applications. The AR0221 Rolling Shutter sensor is optimized for both low light and challenging high dynamic range scene performance with a 4.2m BSI pixel and an Advanced Line-Interleaved HDR. The AR0221 is available from global imaging expert FRAMOS.
Intel® Corporation has recently launched its Intel® RealSense™ T265 Tracking Camera, introducing a new class of stand alone simultaneous localization and mapping device. The compact camera’s tracking is based on visual and inertial sensor fusion and brings SLAM visual mapping to autonomous devices. The T265 plug-and-play device outputs 6 DoF data for precise mapping for the exact orientation and navigation of robots, drones and an immersive experience in Augmented and Virtual Reality. Intel® RealSense devices are available from global vision partner FRAMOS.
Get the latest updates on the new CF-ZA lens series for 1.1” sensors in high-quality Machine Vision and how popular HF-HA Lens Series gets an “Anti-shock and Vibration” upgrade for more stability and robust performance in rough environements.
The "embedded world" in Nuremberg is the leading international trade fair for embedded systems and THE industry meeting place for developers and decision-makers of embedded solutions. Image processing has been represented for many years with its own areaand has grown again in 2019 with more focus on Embedded Vision. The FRAMOS team of experts presented its embedded vision portfolio at this show. Here is an overview of the highlights from the fields of image sensors, displays, optics, 3D solutions, modules and processing that was captured while at the trade fair.
At the Vision Show in Stuttgart, November 2018, the VDMA presented again the "Industrial Vision Days", featuring a 3-days talks programm with top speakers from all areas of the vision industry. FRAMOS, with our CEO Dr. Andreas Franz, contributed to the VDMA panel discussion and our Corporate Editor Ute Häußler hold a speech on the industrial vision market and its trends. Recorded and published from the Spectronet Photonics Cluster, the videos are now available online.
