High-end MIPI camera modules for medical technology
Updated: Jan 23
Focusing medical technology, diagnostic, and laboratory applications, we launch a series of new MIPI CAMERA MODULES that make proven high-end sensors accessible for integration with a wide range of embedded processor platforms.
These new VC MIPI® modules feature high image resolutions, high light sensitivity, low noise, and fast frame rates, combined with the advantages of the MIPI CSI-2 interface:
They are cost-effective, low-power camera boards that can be connected to various embedded processors. The VC MIPI® series is fully in line with the ongoing trend towards miniaturization and edge computing. The series design enables vision solutions with an optimal price–performance ratio. We use a select choice of tried and tested, long-term available Sony Pregius® and Starvis® sensors for medical applications. Since these sensors have no native MIPI interface, we have developed a MIPI converter that is integrated into the ultracompact camera modules.
New modules include VC MIPI IMX183 with a 20-megapixel resolution, 4K video support, and a global reset shutter – ideal for applications requiring maximum image quality and speed. The Sony Starvis® sensor's backside illuminated (BSI) technology ensures high light sensitivity and a wide contrast range. VC MIPI IMX226 and VC MIPI IMX178 with 12 MP and 6.4 MP resolution respectively exhibit the same technologies. We have also integrated Sony Pregius® IMX250 series sensors for applications with high frame rates and IMX260 series sensors for price-sensitive applications with lower speeds. The new MIPI modules are suitable for commercial solutions and long-term available like all VC cameras. Additional VC MIPI® CAMERA MODULES for medtech and life science applications are already on the road map. The manufacturer also completes customized developments.
