Line Scan Cameras

Basler (Exton, PA) has expanded its sprint series of line scan cameras. The existing Camera Link models with 39 kHz, 70 kHz, and 140 kHz line scan rates are now joined by monochrome and color cameras offering 50 kHz at 2k and 4k resolution. All sprint cameras ship with the new firmware, version 1.17. A 6-axis operator achieves high levels of color fidelity. The sprint line scan cameras, which feature large 10 μm pixels, are based on a two-line CMOS sensor technology.

MicroTCA Ecosystem

VadaTech (Henderson, NV) has released a complete ecosystem of boards and chassis in the MicroTCA architecture that is conduction-cooled. Designed for rugged applications, the products include air transport racks (ATR), MicroTCA carrier hubs (MCH), power modules, and advanced mezzanine cards. Compliant to MicroTCA.3 (Hardened Conduction-Cooled MicroTCA) specification, the boards and chassis come in various sizes and formats. The MCH, which acts as a shelf controller, features a 400 MHz RISC CPU for high performance and low latency. The power modules provide true hot- swappability in a dual 10-36V input and outputs of up to 800W. They also have dual Intelligent Platform Management Interface (IPMI) and two banks of 256K flash for redundancy. Several of VadaTech’s advanced mezzanine cards (AMCs) are in the conduction-cooled format. The company is also able to modify standard AMCs to ruggedized versions with wedge locks.

XMC Controller/Adapter

Technobox, Inc. (West Berlin, NJ) has introduced a new SATA-based storage solution in its 6183 Dual CFast XMC Adapter. The 6183 accommodates two CFast devices – either the Type 1 or 2 – with one affixed to an on-board site and the other removable via the front panel port. Data movement between each CFast device and the internal 1X PCIe bus is controlled by a Silicon Image Sil3132 bridge. The bridge supports two SATA Gen2 interfaces at 3.0 GBytes/s. On-board BIOS, loaded in flash memory, provides boot up configuration for the Sil3132. The bridge retrieves the stored configuration data via an I2C interface. Two LEDs on the front panel provide activity status for the front panel and onboard CFast cards. Another four LEDs on the card give an indication of activity for each device. A retention mechanism is included to prevent accidental removal of the front panel device. The retainer also functions as an interlock for the 6183 hot swap feature. .
