A durable, stand-alone, smart solution that has its own on-board, non-volatile memory

The Icon camera series is an embedded vision system platform offering control of the hardware and image data to vision system developers through Sapera Embedded Vision SDK and providing them with the 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 an extensive set of imaging libraries allowing developers and OEMs to create and deliver cost-effective, customized embedded vision system applications. To process and analyze images, Icon cameras feature powerful processing capabilities with extremely low power consumption and a real-time operating system. The cameras' ruggedized, small form factor body is ideal for embedded processing applications.

Featuring high-quality, high-sensitivity, low noise image output and supporting resolutions from VGA to 1600 in colour and monochrome formats, image capture can be synchronized with external events and controls for a deterministic response.

Controlling the Icon's development environment and making it easier to configure, develop, debug and deploy vision applications, is Embedded Sapera Vision SDK – a comprehensive suite of image acquisition, processing, analysis and control libraries, including Sapera Processing which is a set of highly optimized image processing primitives and advanced image analysis tools such as 1D and 2D barcode, OCR, blob analysis, area and geometric search and calibration. Note: While Icon comes pre-licensed and is ready to deploy using Sapera Processing tools, it is engineered as an open platform to allow OEMs to develop applications using third party image-processing tools.

In addition, the cameras' Configuration Utility is a powerful user interface that provides an interactive environment to create or modify camera configurations files. The cameras' parameters can be fine-tuned while capturing live images on the host computer.

Key features
• Offers developers control of hardware and image data through Sapera Embedded Vision SDK • Designed for stand-alone operations
• Incorporates non-volatile memory to store user applications • Can be configured to run on power-up without help from PC
• Optically-isolated inputs and outputs for reliable operations • In-camera debugging via Ethernet
• Real-time operations • multiple processing engines have the benefit of partitioning tasks efficiently:
• 256 MB program memory, 256 MB storage memory • Ultra-small form factor (44 x 44 x 44 mm), ideal for space-limited applications
• Familiar development/debugging platform reduces application development time • Industrial M12 style connectors for flexible, low-cost cabling options
• Multi-tasking operating system for efficient in-camera program execution • Integrated support for camera configuration and setup
• Highly-optimised image processing primitives, 1D/2D barcodes, OCR, blob analysis, camera calibration ,area and geometric search tools
