This high-speed indium gallium arsenide camera is designed for applications including machine vision, pulsed laser beam profiling, high-speed motion analysis and other image-tracking tasks. Its spectral response from 900-1,700 nm offers high speed and regions of interest. It captures images at 109 frames per second on a 640 x 512-pixel focal plane array on a 25-micron pitch, and can image smaller regions at over 15,000 frames per second with 100 percent fill factor. It has a single 14-bit digital Camera Link®-compatible output and a simultaneous analog video NTSC output. Serial commands control ROI window size, position and integration time. It also has user-programmable exposure times, anti-blooming protection, non-uniformity corrections and external triggering of full-frame or ROI acquisition.

In an age of globalization and rapid changes through scientific progress, two of our societies' (and economies') main concerns are to satisfy the needs and wishes of the individual and to save precious resources. Cloud computing caters to both of these.
For industrial control applications, or even a simple assembly line, that machine can go almost 24/7 without a break. But what happens when the task is a little more complex? That’s where the “smart” machine would come in. The smart machine is one that has some simple (or complex in some cases) processing capability to be able to adapt to changing conditions. Such machines are suited for a host of applications, including automotive, aerospace, defense, medical, computers and electronics, telecommunications, consumer goods, and so on. This discussion will examine what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
