Silicon Video Camera With Exceptional Image Quality, Small Size And Low Cost

The EPIX Silicon Video Camera SV 9M001 CMOS camera system offers the advantages of high resolution progressive scan image capture, low noise digital signalling, small size, flexible interface cable, convenient software control, the availability of extensive processing, measurement, and analysis capabilities, and low cost. The 9M001 is a 10-bit monochrome camera. XCAP software provides control of all camera operations.

SILICON VIDEO 9M001 camera is based on the MT9M001 CMOS sensor from Micron. This progressive scan sensor offers an electronic rolling shutter, continuous and single frame capture, windowing, column and row skip modes, snapshot mode, 10 bit dynamic range, and an active programmable array resolution of 1280 x 1024 pixels.

The SV-9M001 camera offers Asynchronous Capture: the recording of an image (or images) in response to a trigger signal. The camera also provides a strobe output signal to synchronize an electronic flash (strobe), for bright, uniform, short duration illumination. The SV9M001 camera can be triggered to capture an image (or images) as might be required in product inspection, laser beam profiling, medical imaging, or any application that requires image capture at a specific time (there is a delay of one frame time between trigger and start of frame capture). The optional use of strobe illumination allows minimum exposure time with maximum image sharpness.

One cable connects the SILICON VIDEO 9M001 camera head to the PIXCI SI board. The PIXCI SI (Serial Interface) board provides power to the camera, sends and receives camera control signals, generates the programmable pixel clock, and receives video data. No dedicated power supply or power cable required.Multiple cabling options are available, see the SILICON VIDEO Cable page for more details.

The XCAP Imaging Application provides a Capture & Adjust Dialog for selecting pixel clock frequency, integration/exposure time, capture resolution, gain, offset, trigger control, and more.

The SILICON VIDEO 9M001 camera system includes the Camera Head, Shielded Interface Cable (various lengths), PIXCI SI PCI Image Capture Board, XCAP-Lite Imaging Program (XCAP-Ltd or Std Optional)

PIXCI SI4 is a single PCI Express x4 board supporting up to four SILICON VIDEO cameras that is also available. The cameras may be the same or a mix and can operate simultaneously or independently. The PIXCI SI4 can have four cameras expose simultaneously from one trigger or can use four trigger inputs - one for each camera.

To complete a SILICON VIDEO 9M001 system add 1/2" format C-Mount lens, analysis software, lighting, and computer - all available.

The XCAP Imaging Program simplifies camera operation with a dedicated Capture & Adjust Dialog. The Capture & Adjust Dialog provides one convenient location for camera controls such as exposure, resolution, triggering, and frame rate. In addition, the SV9M001 Dialog provides a camera-to-computer communication indicator, a programmable pixel clock, and exposure synchronized to AC power frequencies.

The camera's pixel clock frequency is user-selectable over a range of 25 MHz to 70 MHz. The programmable pixel clock provides a wider range of frame rates and exposure times.

The intensity of AC lighting fluctuates with the phase of the AC voltage that powers it. Capturing sequences of images using arbitrary frame rates with AC lighting will result in images with differing brightness. The SV9M001 Capture & Adjust Dialog offers a convenient fix for this problem exposure times can be easily set to multiples of the local AC line frequency, either 1/50th or 1/60th second. Synchronizing exposure times to the line voltage provides images with consistent illumination from a varying-intensity AC light source.

The presence or absence of the 2 lines between the camera and computer icons indicate whether or not the computer and camera are properly connected and capable of communicating.

The optional XCAP-Std imaging program enables video-to-disk capture, potentially for several hours. Requires a host computer with two 7200 rpm hard drives configured as RAID 0. EPIX offers complete imaging systems, designed to your specifications, guaranteed to capture uncompressed video to disk without dropping frames.
