3.2 Megapixel Micro-HD (2048 x 1536)
30 FPS High Definition Digital Camera
Silicon Imaging has introduced the world first 3.2 Million pixel High
Definition CMOS all-digital camera capable of running at video rates of 30
frames/second at its full 2048 x 1536 resolution. The entire micro-head
package is 45 x 52 x 50mm and is small enough to be embedded in a
biophotonic instruments or placed on a robot for machine vision
inspection.
30FPS High-Definition CMOS Technology breakthrough
CMOS imagers are breaking technical barriers in noise, sensitivity and
dynamic range. Driven by the growing demand for consumer Digital Still
Cameras, CMOS sensors have been developed which surpass the
performance characteristics of CCD’s in many photonic, imaging and
consumer applications. By utilizing a single highly integrated CMOS
device, which incorporates Megapixel sensing areas, timing generation,
signal processing and high bandwidth outputs, Silicon Imaging has
developed a compact high definition 30fps digital camera system.
12-Bit Pixel Clock Sampling – No Jitter
The MegaCamera uses dual 12-Bit digitizers to sample 2 output taps,
each at 50MHz to achieve 100Mpixel/sec or 30 Frames/sec data
throughput at its full resolution of 3.2Megapixels. Converting the pixel
data directly to digital at the sensor head eliminates pixel-sampling jitter
and enables accurate sub-pixel metrology, image analysis and improved
live video reconstruction. Either 12bit or 8-bit data can be selected for
high-speed transfer into PC memory.
500FPS High Frame Rate Windowing
A futher reduced size ROI enables readout rates in excess of 1000
frames per second, ideal for motion analysis or object tracking. For HDTV
applications, the aspect ratio can be switched from the traditional 4:3 to
16:9 by utilizing a region-of-interest (ROI) readout.
SERIAL CAPTURE & CONTROL
The SI3170 is fully programmable through its serial port. These functions
include sampling clock speed, region-of interest window, global gain,
RGB gain, exposure, frame-rate and triggering modes. The camera can
operate in live continuous or in single-shot capture. The capture event
can be started from software command or hardware trigger.
All-Digital Interface - CameraLink
Traditionally, 12 bit per pixel resolution and multi-tap cameras require a
large number of parallel digital signals, which becomes cumbersome to
cable and physically large to connect. The SI3170 utilizes high Speed
digital multiplexers to serialize the image data and transmit 1.2Gb/sec of
data, clock and triggers over just a few twisted pairs, thereby minimizing
the cable size and increased flexibility. An industry standard forum of
Camera and Frame Grabber manufacturers has adopted this method,
called CameraLink, for low cost high bandwidth PC connectivity and
cabling.
Silicon Imaging specialize in the design, manufacturing and marketing of
high-definition digital cameras and image processing solutions for the
machine vision, medical, scientific instrumentation, , entertainment and
surveillance markets. Silicon' s focus has been to exploit the recent
advancements in CMOS imagers and digital processors to develop a new
generation of high definition products which can outperform traditional
video camera and processing systems at a lower cost.

LIVE VIDEO DISPLAY
Image display is provided by the host computer's video graphics adapter (VGA) and monitor(s) or flat panel(s). Display resolution
is a function of the capabilities of these devices. Some Super VGA (SVGA) monitors can display the full resolution of the camera
image. A software look-up-table feature allows display of 8 bits from the 12 bit gray level image.
COLOR BAYER CONVERSION & CORRECTION
Bayer color Image data from the SI-3170RGB is converted to 24Bit RGB using the most advanced signal color conversion
algorithm available. AWB Automatic White Balance functions are implemented to match the true world color to the calculated and
displayed values. These functions are also available in the Imaging Library (S-LIB) for OEM applications.
SOFTWARE
A free ready-to-run interactive capture program
(GRAB) that features camera control screens, line
and column pixel plots, image sequence capture,
and image sequence display. Images can be saved
to disk for processing by other programs.
ANALYZE is a ready-to-run interactive image
processing and analysis program for qualitative and
quantitative image operations. A few mouse clicks
select FFTs, histograms, morphology,
measurements, edge detection, correlations, 3D
plots, arithmetic operations, and many other
functions. The tools provide analysis of the SI-3170
images using 12 bits of grey level per pixel. GRAB
can control up to 8 Frame Grabber boards in a
single computer
IMAGE PROCESSING LIBRARY
An extensive programming library is available
which includes sample code for image processing
and allows application-specific code to be added to
the large selection of functions already developed.
No royalties are required for software developed
using our libraries.
SOLUTIONS and SUPPORT
The Silicon Imaging team has provided vision solutions and support for OEM machine vision manufacturers, camera
manufacturers, radiologists, astronomers, biologists, and engineers for 15 years.

CameraLink Interface
Camera Link is a new digital transmission method designed by
imaging component manufacturers as an easy and standard way to
connect digital cameras to frame grabbers. The Camera Link
specification includes greater than 1.2Gb/sec data transmission as
well as camera control and asynchronous serial communications all
on a single cable with high-density 26pin connector. Only two
connections are required to quickly interface your digital camera to
a multitude of frame grabbers.
Silicon Imaging has provided the option to further simplify cabling
by allowing camera power (+5VDC) directly thru the CameraLink
cable using up to 3 pairs of wires in the standard cable.
As a standard that has been defined by industry members, Camera
Link provides the following benefits:
•
Standard Interface: Every Camera Link product usea the
same cable and signaling. Cameras and frame grabbers can
easily be interchanged using the same cable.
•
Simple Connection: Only two connections will be required
to interface a camera and frame grabber: Power and Camera
Link.
•
Lower Cost: Because Camera Link is an industry-wide
standard, consumers will be able to take advantage of lower
cable prices.
•
Smaller connectors & cables: The technology used in
Camera Link reduces the number of wires required to
transmit data over traditional LVDS or RS-422 parallel
interfaces, allowing for smaller cables. Smaller cables are
more robust and less prone to breakage.
•
Higher data rates: The technology used in Camera Link has
a maximum data rate of 2.3GB/s, for use in the most
demanding high definition, high frame rate and line scan.
