congatec introduces MIPI-CSI 2 Smart Camera Kit for rugged vision systems

2 MARCH 2018

Application-ready bundle for video analytics at the IIoT edge

congatec – a leading vendor of standardized and customized embedded computer boards and modules – introduces its first MIPI-CSI 2 Smart Camera Kit for vision systems at the edge of the IIoT. It is an application-ready kit for the evaluation and deployment of MIPI-CSI 2 based rugged smart camera analytics in harsh industrial, outdoor, and in-vehicle environments. Developers benefit from an instantly deployable industrial-grade smart MIPI-CSI platform. Built with commercial, off-the-shelf available components, it simplifies development and accelerates the time to market of smart camera analytics solutions for the edge of the IIoT.
MIPI-CSI 2 based smart camera technology brings video analytics and optional artificial intelligence for decision making to the IIoT edges, saving on data transmission costs, speeding time to results, and ultimately enabling autonomous behavior. Typical smart camera applications at the IIoT edge include industrial and medical imaging and vision systems, situational awareness and video surveillance systems in smart cities, as well as intelligent vehicle applications, augmented reality in maintenance, gesture-based controls or biometrics recognition.

MIPI-CSI is the most widely used camera interface for consumer-grade mobile devices. Implementing this high-speed protocol on embedded boards such as the Pico-ITX motherboard from congatec simplifies the support of high-performance applications, including 1080p, 4k, 8k and beyond for rugged industrial-grade 24/7 embedded systems, as the ecosystem for MIPI-CSI is rich and highly elaborate.

The congatec MIPI-CSI 2 Smart Camera Kit includes all the building blocks of a smart camera solution, and can be easily customized to support new applications and features. It is 100% compliant with the latest MIPI-CSI standard and optimized to run the MIPI-CSI 2 camera from Leopard Imaging based on ON Semiconductor’s AR0237 HD sensor together with the rugged conga-PA5 Pico-ITX single board computer based on Intel Atom E3900 processors for the extended temperature ranges. It comes with all required configurations and patches, and is ready to run code on the basis of the Linux Yocto kernel.
