Critical Link's Evaluation Kits Available for Canon Image Sensors
Critical Link's Evaluation Kits for two CMOS image sensors from Canon are available now: the 120MXS, a 120MP CMOS sensor; and the 3U5MGXSBA, a 5MP global shutter sensor.
By: Critical Link
The companies have been collaborating on development of Sensor Evaluation Kits for Canon CMOS sensors, allowing developers to test sensor features and performance to ensure a fit with their application. System designers gain access to assets that accelerate development time, including complete sensor board design files. For applications that require on-board image processing, the Evaluation Kits feature an open architecture design, with the option to embed processing and software with the on-board CPU and FPGA fabric.
Evaluation Kits consist of a camera with a pre-installed Canon CMOS sensor, and include:
· Accessory package for out-of-the-box operation (quick start guide, power supply, compact tripod, cables)
· Embedded software to setup the sensor, acquire image data and communicate over USB 3.1 interface with any USB 3 compliant UI
· PC-based UI application available for download to communicate with the camera
· Sensor board design files and source code*
· VHDL code for the FPGA*
Evaluation kits for the 3U5MGXSBA and the 120MXS are expected to begin shipping in November. Orders can be placed through Canon's website, or with an authorized distributor.
A third evaluation kit is in development for Canon's 35MMFHDXS_A, a 19 μm, 2.76MP sensor with extreme-low-
