e2v Launches the ELiiXA+ 8k/4k Line Scan Camera Based on e2v Multi-Line CMOS Technology

TOKYO -- (Marketwire) -- 12/06/12 -- e2v, a leading global provider of high performance imaging solutions, is launching the ELiiXA+ 8k/4k at ITE 2012, in Yokohama, Japan. Based on e2v multi-line CMOS technology, this new camera is the second addition to e2v's successful ELiiXA+ industrial line scan camera family and is aimed at a broad range of applications, providing high performance, ease of use and robustness at a competitive price.

e2v's ELiiXA+ camera family is designed specifically to provide advanced speed, supreme sensitivity and high resolution by incorporating an innovative CMOS pixel architecture, combining the most advanced signal to noise ratio per individual pixel, and multi-line architecture to boost sensitivity further by sequentially integrating the same object line with full exposure control. The family was launched last year with a 16k pixel camera aimed at advanced machine vision applications.

The new ELiiXA+ 8k/4k brings high performance sensor technology to a broader range of applications, such as the inspection of raw material surfaces and general web material, the sorting of parcel and postal documents, the scanning of print and high resolution documents as well as the advanced inspection of flat panel displays, printed circuit boards and solar cells. The new camera provides the following features:

  • The two most desired resolutions available in the same camera for versatile integration and evolution: 8,192 pixels, 5µm x 5µm pixel pitch, 4 active CMOS lines and 4,096 pixels, 10µm x 10 µm pixel pitch, 2 active CMOS lines
  • Compatible with standard F-mount lenses
  • e2v multi-line CMOS technology offers a one order of magnitude increase in sensitivity versus a standard Charge Coupled Device (CCD)
  • e2v multi-line CMOS technology is compatible with full exposure control
  • Ultra-fast line rate up to 100,000 lines/s
  • Camera Link interface
  • Up to 12-bit depth
  • Power consumption below 7W
  • Vertical and horizontal binning
  • Fast and easy configuration

e2v's ELiiXA+ 8k/4k camera also benefits from a compact design with a 41mm active sensor that can be operated in an 8k or 4k pixel mode depending on the user settings. The camera is cost effective to implement as the sensor length is compatible with the readily available and affordable F-mount lenses which perfectly matches the 5µm pixel size. Two models of the new camera are available with either Medium Camera Link interface or Full/Deca Camera Link interface.

Sébastien Teysseyre, e2v's marketing manager for industrial cameras said "With the new ELiiXA+ 8k/4k, e2v is setting new standards for machine vision line scan cameras. This new camera family competes directly with single/dual line scan camera technology and CCD TDI solutions, but the ELiiXA+ cameras have the advantage of delivering higher product performance with fewer integration constraints. Our R&D team have worked hard to develop e2v's new multi-line CMOS technology so that it achieves 100,000 lines/sec but still delivers high sensitivity. This is done by using the sensors 4 active lines whilst at the same time keeping the power consumption below 7W and giving the user full control over the exposure time."

This week, the team assembled in NYC for @Cloud Expo 2015 and @ThingsExpo 2015. For the past four years, this has been a must-attend event for MetraTech. We were happy to once again join industry visionaries, colleagues, customers and even competitors to share and explore the ways in which the Internet of Things (IoT) will impact our industry. Over the course of the show, we discussed the types of challenges we will collectively need to solve to capitalize on the opportunity IoT presents.
As more intelligent IoT applications shift into gear, they’re merging into the ever-increasing traffic flow of the Internet. It won’t be long before we experience bottlenecks, as IoT traffic peaks during rush hours. Organizations that are unprepared will find themselves by the side of the road unable to cross back into the fast lane. As billions of new devices begin to communicate and exchange data – will your infrastructure be scalable enough to handle this new interconnected world?
Containers are all the rage among developers and web companies, but they also represent two very substantial benefits to larger organizations. First, they have the potential to dramatically accelerate the application lifecycle from software builds and testing to deployment and upgrades. Second they represent the first truly hybrid-approach to consuming infrastructure, allowing organizations to run the same workloads on any cloud, virtual machine or physical server. Together, they represent a ver...
As operational failure becomes more acceptable to discuss within the software industry, the necessity for holding constructive, actionable postmortems increases. But most of what we know about postmortems from "pop culture" isn't actually relevant for the software systems we work on and within. In his session at DevOps Summit, J. Paul Reed will look at postmortem pitfalls, techniques, and tools you'll be able to take back to your own environment so they will be able to lay the foundations for h...

Overgrown applications have given way to modular applications, driven by the need to break larger problems into smaller problems. Similarly large monolithic development processes have been forced to be broken into smaller agile development cycles. Looking at trends in software development, microservices architectures meet the same demands. Additional benefits of microservices architectures are compartmentalization and a limited impact of service failure versus a complete software malfunction....

DevOps has often been described in terms of CAMS: Culture, Automation, Measuring, Sharing. While we’ve seen a lot of focus on the “A” and even on the “M”, there are very few examples of why the “C" is equally important in the DevOps equation. In her session at @DevOps Summit, Lori MacVittie, of F5 Networks, will explore HTTP/1 and HTTP/2 along with Microservices to illustrate why a collaborative culture between Dev, Ops, and the Network is critical to ensuring success.
The IoT market is on track to hit $7.1 trillion in 2020. The reality is that only a handful of companies are ready for this massive demand. There are a lot of barriers, paint points, traps, and hidden roadblocks. How can we deal with these issues and challenges? The paradigm has changed. Old-style ad-hoc trial-and-error ways will certainly lead you to the dead end. What is mandatory is an overarching and adaptive approach to effectively handle the rapid changes and exponential growth.
