VELOCIRAPTOR HS is the ultimate FPGA camera with a very large Xilinx Spartan-6 FPGA and high-speed imaging sensor. It is developed to fill the gap in the market between standard industrial cameras and high-speed cameras. The Camera has small and ruggedized waterproof aluminum housing design (90x52x40 mm) with an innovative mounting system (balljoint). It is Ethernet powered (IEEE 802.3at PoE) with a power consumption up to 10W. Imaging sensors were carefully selected and the ones selected were the best market has to offer: turbocharged CMOSIS imaging sensors CMV2000 (2048×1088 pixels, 2/3’’ size) or CMV4000 (2048×2048 pixels, 1’’ size).
The sensors include all features a modern machine vision sensor should have: a global shutter, several high dynamic range modes and an overlapping trigger mode. As already mentioned the sensor is very fast and outputs up to 768 million pixels per second resulting in 331 FPS (CMV2000) and 176 FPS (CMV4000). At a reduced frame size the frame rate can go up to 5000 frames per second.
With high-performance FPGA System-on-Chip (SoC) technology, the Velociraptor camera family opens new dimensions in computer vision. It is a global shutter high-speed camera with incredible frame rates and a range of real-time image-processing cores (JPEG compression, color processing, etc.).
A JPEG compression core operating at maximum frame rate is offered with this camera. This core was developed especially for this camera, since there was no JPEG core with sufficient performance available on the market. The compression core enables long recording of high-speed video and direct PC storage.
