Powering Industrial and Automation Camera Markets

Industrial vision applications across markets such as factory automation and data capture, traffic management, etc. have special requirements including reliability, form factor, power consumption, noise rejection, and cost considerations, among many others. Hardware development is the key enabler of vision technologies because of increased image processing requirements for both image sensing and processing. However, as performance demands are growing, industrial cameras are also shrinking, posing new challenges for industrial vision applications.

Eyenix - SoC Solution Provider for Industrial Cameras

Machine vision applications employ larger, higher-performance components including lenses, image sensors, image-sensing processors (ISP), and interfaces. The sensor size is proportional to the image quality and details, greater resolution, and higher frame rates, which in turn require increased processing power. Additionally, the use of machine learning in smart factories for sorting, automated production lines, and analyzing images and videos demand high-performance computing systems such as processors or SoCs which usually are in the ISP of the process (image 2).

Eyenix, a leading provider of high-resolution ISPs, has developed Edge AI SoC products which are powered by AnDAPT’s AmP chips. The SDK (Software Development Kits), image 3, is characterized by stringent requirements including PCB area with the ISP, image sensor, power, interface and peripheral analog functionalities on a tight 35 mm x 30 mm board. The AmP chip powers 9 rails and also provides functionalities including sequencing, IO expansion, and watchdog timer.

The Eyenix case is a perfect example to showcase how AmP ICs address specific machine vision camera requirements (table 1).

“Our products require a high level of integration and especially the Eyenix EN675 Echo 1 product required the solution to fit in a very compact space,” said Dr. Hwang, CEO at Eyenix. “AnDAPT products successfully implemented the solution in time within constraints and enabled successful deployment of our new product line.”

Addressing Machine Vision Camera Requirements

As machine vision applications evolve, so do the requirements; table 1 summarizes the associated issues and lists how AmP is optimized for such applications.

IO Expander

Reset Generator

  • Stepper motor control for camera zooming
  • Frees up IOs on processor
  • Provides I2C expansion
  • Senses movement
  • Protects system against brownouts
  • Includes watchdog timer
