Dalsa's BOA Vision System

The Icon™ camera series gives vision system developers unprecedented power and flexibility to develop their own embedded imaging applications. Combining Teledyne DALSA's expertise in image sensors, cameras and image processing with off-the-shelf development tools and libraries, Icon brings a powerful, familiar application development environment and extensive set of imaging libraries to allow developers and OEMs to create and deliver cost effective, customized embedded vision system applications.

Icon begins with high quality image sensors and an extensive camera feature set. But Icon is more than a camera--it is an embedded vision system platform offering control of the hardware and image data to developers through Embedded Sapera™ Vision SDK, a suite of embedded image acquisition, processing, analysis and control libraries using conventional programming languages like C/C++. The Embedded Sapera Vision SDK package also features powerful tools, making it easier to configure, develop, debug and deploy vision applications.

The Icon's multiple processing engines have the benefit of partitioning tasks efficiently: application management via CPU, algorithm optimization via NEON instruction set and DSP and sensor management via FPGA. The Icon features 1GHz ARM Cortex-A8 and C64x+ DSP processors for powerful real-time processing capability combined with extremely low power consumption. It has 256 MB for program memory and 256 MB storage memory.

¦The Icon series offers an open platform to develop embedded applications for Icon cameras using the familiar off-the-shelf development tools like Microsoft® Visual Studio™ targetting Microsoft Windows CE operating system. With built-in support for the processor platform, the Icon applications can be debugged and traced using Visual Studio's remote Ethernet tools. Familiar development/debugging platform mean substantial reduction in application development time. Embedded application development using Sapera Processing or third party image processing libraries.

Icon cameras are fully supported by Embedded Sapera Vision SDK, a suite of embedded image acquisition, processing, analysis and control libraries. Sapera Processing, bundled as part of the Embedded Sapera Vision SDK, features highly optimized image processing primitives, Barcode, OCR, blob analysis, area and geometric search and calibration tools. The Embedded Sapera Vision SDK package also features powerful yet easy to use setup and configuration tools to speed up deployment and maintenance tasks. Additionally, all Icon cameras come pre-licensed to run the entire suite of Embedded Sapera Processing.

Users can develop embedded applications for Icon cameras using the familiar off-the-shelf development tools like Microsoft® Visual Studio running on Microsoft Windows CE. The Icon has Built-in opto-isolated I/O, 10/100 BaseT Ethernet port provides setup and monitor access, runtime control, and standard communication protocols such as TCP/IP, Ethernet/IP. Passive Power over Ethernet supports single cable interface option. RS-232 serial communication port. Integrated illumination connector provides power and strobe control to external strobe. Status LEDs indicate device health and application activity. M12 connectors support standard low-cost factory cabling
