Micro/sys Honored by Vision Systems Design 2016 Innvators Award Program
May 20, 2016
Montrose, California... Micro/sys, a supplier of harsh rugged single board computer solutions, announced today that its Blazing Frames™ SBC4661 Vision Enhanced Computer Board was recognized by the judges of the annual Vision Systems Design Innovators Awards program. Micro/sys was honored with a Bronze-level award.
Micro/sys’ Blazing Frames™ SBC4661-BVL is a single board computer with multi-camera interfaces and 12.5 Gb/s through-put, making it ideal for demanding vision applications using GigE Vision®, USB3 Vision®, CoaXPress or CamerLink® HS in harsh, rugged environments. Combining an ARM® processor and Linux, the groundbreaking innovation of the Blazing Frames™ SBC4661 is a smartly partitioned two-processor single board computer so that the host PC portion of the board can offload to the FPGA the receiving, sending, and processing of vast amounts of vision data at up to 12.5 Gb/sec without sacrificing performance of the host PC. Incredibly, the Blazing Frames™ SBC4661 reduces the power requirements for a vision system, making it reasonable to deploy a high performance camera with a single board solution in harsh rugged environments with less than 12W while being flexible enough to accommodate five (5) different camera interfaces.
Susan Wooley, President of Micro/sys said, “We are honored that Vision Systems Design recognized our Blazing Frames SBC4661 board for its role in enabling high-speed, high-through put vision applications in harsh, rugged applications. As embedded users include vision in their rugged application, having a turn-key, ready-to-run vision solution becomes critical for them to bring their application to market quickly.”
Alan Bergstein, publisher of Vision Systems Design said "This prestigious program allows Vision Systems Design to celebrate and recognize the most innovative products and services in the vision and image processing industry. Our 2016 Honorees are an outstanding example of companies who are making an impact in the industry."
