Toshiba Teli Unveils Industrial Camera Processor
SmartDragon camera processor.
Irvine, CA — Toshiba Teli America, Inc. has introduced the SmartDragon image processor, calling it the next generation of its Smart Camera solutions. Easier to use and more powerful than its predecessor, the SmartDragon achieves maximum flexibility with its capability to connect and simultaneously receive data from up to four FireWire-B (IEEE1394.b) color or black-and-white cameras.

Taking maximum advantage of FireWire-B's 800Mbps speed, the compact and simple-to-integrate SmartDragon (model iIS-BF4) has 16 insulated digital input and output terminals to address the automated inspection needs in semiconductors, food and beverage,

pharmaceutical, packaging, and factory automation. An external trigger is used to input signals at the desired timing with variations in delay times and pulse widths, and then output from the unit's external trigger output. In addition, there are inputs for Gigabit Ethernet (RJ45), USB devices, RS-232C, and connections for a PC display, mouse and keyboard.

Unlike similar processors, SmartDragon does not rely on a hard disk drive for data storage, instead using industrial-grade CF cards up to 4GB to provide greater reliability in industrial environments. The system is equipped with an Intel® Pentium M 1.4GHz processor, running Microsoft Windows® XP Professional SP2 embedded as its operating system, along with applications that include NET Framework 2.0 and Toshiba Teli's TeliDCAM with PC-Tri32.
