- e-con Systems and Toradex have launched a wide range camera modules for addressing multiple embedded vision applications
- Customers can now reduce the time-to-market for their embedded vision products drastically without worrying about image quality
e-con Systems, an embedded vision camera manufacturer in partnership with Toradex has launched a range of MIPI CSI-2 camera module support for Toradex’s iMX8 SoM series, Apalis.
By launching a variety of camera modules with different image sensors and various features, e-con Systems enables Toradex Apalis i.MX8 users to address multiple applications. Among the camera modules is e-con’s flagship 4Kcamera module, e-CAM137A_CUMI1335_MOD.
Enhanced image quality
The e-CAM137A_CUMI1335_MOD is based on ON Semiconductor’s 1/3.2 inch AR1335 high-resolution sensor with a pixel array of 4208 x 3120. The camera module supports an M12 holder which allows the customer to interchange various lenses.
Other than the 4K camera module, the launch includes e-CAM55_CUMI0521_MOD, a 5MP MIPI CSI-2 camera module based on ON Semiconductor’s 1/2.5 inch AR0521 sensor with an active pixel array of 2592 x 1944. The pixel size of AR0521 provides superior low light performance enabling quality imaging systems in varied lighting environments.
“e-con Systems, a pioneer in embedded vision is excited to partner with Toradex, a leading computing solutions provider for embedded industry to launch our bouquet of MIPI CSI-2 camera modules for Toradex computing platforms. Our customers can choose any camera from this bouquet to build and deploy their embedded vision products in no time” said Ashok Babu, President ofe-con Systems Inc. “Customers can bring down the time-to-market for their embedded vision products drastically as these cameras are already tuned for image quality and ready for deployment in the field without worrying about camera integration issues for long term supply of cameras”, he added.
“Toradex’s focus is to make embedded computing easy. We know that good camera support is important for many of our customers. We worked hand-in-hand (with e-con Systems) to integrate their camera in our Yocto Project-based BSP and Torizon, the easy-to-use industrial Linux platform. For customers, this means these cameras just work and you can focus on your application. e-con provides a wide range of camera modules supporting Image Signal Processing (ISP), this provides much better performance on applications processors without dedicated ISP such as the i.MX 8 and i.MX 8X”, said Daniel Lang, CMO, Toradex.
e-con Systems has integrated the camera drivers with Toradex’s Torizon, an open-source software platform with Linux OS.
Users can order the following evaluation kits for testing the various camera modules with the Toradex’s Apalisi.MX8 SoMs from e-con’s online store.
