PPT Vision'sImpact M-Series Embedded
Vision System delivers increased precision and speed to automated inspection,
guidance and identification production processes. Featuring up to four
asynchronously triggered cameras that run on a single processor, the M-Series
Embedded Vision System allows each M-Series camera to be independently optimized
with the appropriate speed, resolution and size. With high-speed camera frame
rates, up to 210 frames per second, the Impact M-Series Embedded Vision System
provides complete images to the dual-core processor, allowing capture of fast
moving products. PPT Vision says the Impact
M-Series is designed with high performance processing and performs at more than
twice the speed of most of today's cameras, resulting in more high quality
The M-100 camera's footprint measures 29 x 29 mm-the Impact M-Series delivers
high speeds and precision in areas with limited access or environmental
constraints. With 15 Impact M-Series camera models available, users have the
ability to choose the right camera speed, resolution and size to accommodate
versatile application requirements.
The M-Series Embedded
Vision System allows users to perform up to four unique inspections that can be
initiated independently-at different times or simultaneously-utilizing a single
vision processor. By eliminating the need to purchase multiple systems for
separate inspection/guidance programs, the Impact M-Series saves additional
costs and reduces setup and networking time. The M-Series is an ideal machine
vision solution for manufacturing industries that require more than one
inspection, including electronics, pharmaceutical, medical devices, consumer
products and automotive.
Advertised as the "Most Powerful Tablet Under $100," the Kindle Fire HD 6 was too tempting for the team at iFixit to pass up. Join us to find out if inexpensive means cheap, irreparable, or just down right economical. It's teardown time!
The first photos made with a 3D-printed telescope are here and they're not as fuzzy as you might expect. A team from the University of Sheffield beat NASA to the goal. The photos of the Moon were made with a reflecting telescope that cost the research team £100 to make (about $161 US).
The increased adoption of wireless technology for mission-critical applications has revved up the global market for dynamic electronic general purpose (GP) test equipment. As the link between cloud networks and devices -- smartphones, tablets, and notebooks -- results in more complex devices under test, the demand for radio frequency test equipment is starting to intensify.
Much of the research on lithium-ion batteries is focused on how to make the batteries charge more quickly and last longer than they currently do, work that would significantly improve the experience of mobile device users, as well EV and hybrid car drivers. Researchers in Singapore have come up with what seems like the best solution so far -- a battery that can recharge itself in mere minutes and has a potential lifespan of 20 years.
