Embedded vision CSI-2 camera with PYTHON 480 sensor

Alvium CSI-2 cameras enable new designs for embedded applications with improved image quality and reduced workload for the host. The innovative ALVIUM System on Chip (SoC) performs image corrections and preprocessing tasks onboard the camera instead of the embedded board. Unlike FPGAs commonly used in machine vision cameras, the ALVIUM SoC is extremely power efficient. With Alvium, integrating hardware and software can be done effortlessly, which ultimately reduces development time. The ON Semi PYTHON 480 CMOS sensor enables high frame rates in global shutter mode. Color models ship with an IR cut filter, monochrome and S-Mount models ship without a filter or protection glass.
