Marlin cameras are equipped with many useful real-time image pre-processing functions. They are performed by the FPGA inside the camera – with no additional CPU load on the host, so that an inexpensive system is sufficient.

  • Programmable look-up table (LUT), white balance, hue, saturation
  • Debayering
  • Gain
    • Auto/manual
    • Manual gain control: 0 to 24 dB
  • Exposure
    • Auto/manual
    • Exposure time: 59 µs to 67 s
  • Color correction
  • Shading correction
  • Sub-sampling, 2x binning (b/w)
  • Area of interest (AOI) with speed increase
  • Sequence mode - changes the image settings on the fly
  • Image mirror
  • Deferred image transport
  • SIS (secure image signature, time stamp for trigger, frame count)
  • Storable user settings

With its modular and flexible design and the real-time pre-processing functions, this Marlin camera fits for many applications:

  • Machine vision
  • Quality control
  • Industrial inspection
  • Intelligent traffic systems
