The flexible hardware platform of the EyeCheck 8000 camera from EVT allows the user to choose alternatively between one and up to four sensor heads to connect them to the computing platform. Additionally with the dual core processor, which consists of a 1 GHz ARM processor and a 800 MHz DSP quite a lot of applications can be solved easily, for example alignment systems in the semiconductor industry or 3D applications and also all around surveillance of rooms. And many more image processing tasks can be solved with this system.
The whole system is equipped with a powerful LINUX operating system, which runs on an ARM Cortex A8 processor. The efficient DSP for example is completely available for tasks such as transferring videos in real time by Codec. In addition to the DSP there is also the GPU graphic core available. Therefore especially computationally intensive image processing applications can be carried out by the DSP and the GPU, so that the ARM processor only has to care about the data transfer.
Thus the high-performance CPU has still a lot of capacity left, so that the spare computing time can be used to carry out the powerful and graphically programmable EyeVision image processing software.
The efficient combination 1 GHz ARM and 800 MHz DSP reaches clock frequencies, which were up till now only reached with a PC. Due to the high-performance algorithms for the image processing of the EyeVision software, a manifold of applications form various industries can be solved.
The extremely compact construction of the hardware allows the user to integrate the complete unit into almost any system. The low power dissipation of the CPU combination allows the unit to be able to be built into a completely capsuled housing, to reach the protection category IP67.
