Deploying MIPI CSI-2 for industrial embedded vision solutions

VC MIPI® Cameras and the VC MIPI Ecosystem are perfect for the fast, easy and cost-effective development of embedded vision solutions. Based on the MIPI CSI-2 interface as a widely used industry standard, the camera modules and components can be combined with numerous processor boards. Image acquisition, data transmission and evaluation are seamlessly integrated. This enables even complex real-time applications and, in combination with ultra-compact design and maximum energy efficiency, creates the basis for mobile and autonomously deployable smart devices.

MIPI does the trick

VC MIPI® CSI-2 camera modules for all common processor boards provide the perfect basis for flexible, fast and cost-efficient integration of embedded vision.

VC Power SoM:
The FPGA accelerator for MIPI Embedded Vision

The tiny FPGA hardware accelerator VC Power SoM can be integrated into the design of your embedded vision application as a building block. It handles complex image pre-processing like color space conversion, barcode identification or data fusion,directly in the MIPI data stream. This reduces your development time and gives you even more flexibility in the choice of the processor board.
