Grenoble, France (ots/PRNewswire)
- New Capabilities With High-Resolution AViiVA UM8
Atmel(R) Corporation (Nasdaq: ATML) announced today the launch of
the AViiVA(R) UM8 12K line scan camera a high-performing 12K line
scan camera. This camera is a new member of the AViiVA line scan
camera family dedicated to industrial machine vision applications.
The AViiVA UM8 provides more-detailed inspection in a multi-camera
system, with 12K pixels of resolution, eight taps working at 40 MHz,
line rates reaching 25K lines per second and a dynamic range of 64
dB. It specifically meets the demand of end-users who require
inspections in less time.
The AViiVA UM8 embeds Atmel's own CCD sensor design and process
expertise with 12, 288 pixels of 5 um each. Building on the
experience of its line scan technology, Atmel has once again released
a new Camera Link(R) camera to the market. AViiVA UM8 is a further
commitment to innovation. The cubic design integrates the best of
Atmel technology to provide: higher sensitivity leading to a superior
dynamic range even at an ultra high speed, easy implementation
including flat field correction and automated tap balancing. The
outstanding design of the housing is very compact and ensures
heat-dissipation, better sensor alignment accuracy that minimizes the
cost of optics and lighting, which are key features for multi-camera
systems. The AViiVA UM8 is the first RoHS compliant camera migration
for the complete AViiVA family range.
"This advanced member of the AViiVA line scan family combines the
best of our technology associating higher performance and ease of
use," commented Christophe Robinet, Atmel's Camera Marketing Manager.
"The qualification tests we performed with our clients confirms it is
simply the best sensitivity product on the market, which definitely
provides the key solution for the most demanding clients."
Additional benefits of the optimized size of the cubic design
allows simpler camera accessories and significantly reduced
multi-camera system costs for customers in flat panel display
inspection, PCB inspection and high performance Web inspection
The AViiVA UM8 is delivered with a Camera Link configuration
interface that allows easy implementation of the camera into existing
systems. It includes fine gain and offset settings, an output mode of
8 to 12 bits, flat field correction and automated balancing of the
eight taps. This camera is compatible with fast and power full frame
grabbers currently available. The CommCam GUI concept (graphical user
interface) with its plug-and-play system has contributed to the
success of AViiVA line scan cameras. It enables automatic
identification of the camera range, faster programming, multilingual
programming of settings, easy saving process and uploading of
firmware for upgrades and customization.
The AViiVA UM8 production phase will start in June 2006.
