Atmel's Digital Cameras Provide 12-bit Black and White or Color Images at 8 Megapixels

2/5/2003 - Atmel® Corporation (Nasdaq: ATML) announced an improved version of its CAMELIA 8Megapixels, member in its CAMELIA family of digital imaging systems which now include a digital camera head, a digital PCI frame grabber and associated WINDOWS® software.

The CAMELIA M1 8M (black and white) and CAMELIA C1 8M (color), based on a large format (close to 35mm film size) progressive scan CCD featuring 2300 (H) x 3500 (V) or 8 million square pixels, has been improved on electro-optical performance, in particular by reducing power consumption, using a new front panel and an internal heat sink. The electronic modules in the camera has been redesigned to provide new features. CAMELIA C1 8M delivers a very high sensitivity and excellent color reproduction thanks to the use of new color filters.

Performance and reliability of this CAMELIA 8M make it well suited for the most demanding applications like film and document scanning, microscopy and cell biology semiconductor and PCB inspection, metrology, ophtalmology and display inspection in machine vision.

CAMELIA M1 8M and CAMELIA C1 8M capture and deliver 12 bit image data with a dedicated electronic image processor module, featuring an excellent signal to noise ratio.

The CCD sensor is able to work in 1x1, 2x2, 4x4 binning mode and in ROI mode ( Region of Interest). These features allow faster preview mode from 2.7 frames/second up to 9 frames/second.

The complete CAMELIA 8M system is delivered with user-friendly application and interface software, and supports Camera LinkTM, a new imaging industry standard for serial interface . With Camera Link, the system designer can access all data synchronisation and total camera control with a unique and standard cable. The CAMELIA 8M family also includes a parallel LVDS (Low Voltage Differential Signaling) version, which allows the use of longer cable.
