Camera solutions are at the core of machine vision in factory automation and logistics. Cameras can be used for a broad range of application including quality control and feature inspection, robot guidance and 3D volume measurements. Cameras can be stand-alone with digital input/output interfaces to a programmable logic controller (PLC) or a robot controller or with high-speed interfaces to allow further remote processing.

Texas Instruments offers solutions to help solve challenges when designing camera solutions for factory automation and logistics. For a faster camera time to market, TI Designs offer resources, such as schematics and design files that can be used as starting points for key subsystems like:

  • Industry communication protocols
  • Analog or digital camera interfaces
  • Laser, motor and/or liquid lenses driver
  • High-speed or generic digital I/O
  • Power and timing control for lighting (illumination) including 3D vision based on DLP ® technology
  • Power for processing sub-system including power for field-programmable gate array (FPGA)
  • High-end processing based on Digital Signal Processors (DSP)
