VRmagic, Cambridge, MA, offers a programmable multi-sensor camera that produces pixel-synchronous images from several positions. With a standard Debian Linux operating system, the camera provides developers with a platform for programming their own applications and transferring them to the camera by means of cross-compilers. Equipped with the DaVinci processor from Texas Instruments, the components feature a 300 MHz ARM9 processor running the Linux operating system, and a 600 MHz DSP with 4800 MIPs. The device has up to four external, 28 × 199 mm sensors that can be connected to the central unit of the camera by a flex-foil-cable with LVDS transmission. The cameras have 256 MB RAM and a 512 MB flash module, and the supported interfaces include Ethernet, USB 2.0 Host, RS-232 and general purpose I/O, analog video putput, and CAN Bus and PROFIBUS.
