Forza Silicon Introduces Advanced CMOS Modular Video Camera Platform System - 100+ Megapixels at 60 fps

New ­­­­100+ Megapixel (MP) video camera system will be demonstrated at SPIE Defense and Security (DSS) in Forza Silicon's booth # 939, Baltimore Convention Center, Baltimore, MD, May 6 - 8, 2014.

April 23, 2014 - Pasadena, CA - Forza Silicon (www.forzasilicon.com), a leader of advanced image sensor ­­and mixed-signal IC designs for digital camera applications, introduces the unprecedented Forza 100+ MP CAM Platform featuring a customizable CMOS image sensor operating at 60 frames per second (fps) and supporting multiple camera resolutions­.


The dual-mode camera operates in B&W or color and produces high-quality video at the highest resolution and speed available, with minimal motion blur. It is ideal for surveillance applications and particularly useful for large-area image capture. With a proprietary onboard image processor, image sequences can be captured, downloaded, and configured to resolutions approaching 200 MP while maintaining speeds of 60 fps.

The Forza 100+ MP CAM Platform includes a high resolution, visible CMOS image sensor module and camera reference design that can be customized to allow for fast integration into multiple camera hardware designs and applications. Due to the modular design of both the CMOS image sensor (CIS) and electronics processing stacks, the array format, frame rate, and power dissipation can be tailored to meet the specific requirements of defense, aerospace, automotive, and medical imaging devices that require state-of-the-art imaging resolution and speed.

Forza Silicon will be demonstrating its Forza 100+ MP CAM Platform at the upcoming SPIE DSS show on May 6 - 8, 2014 at the Baltimore Convention Center. "This forum provides us the opportunity to present the game-changing elements of the Forza 100+ MP CAM Platform in a venue where the benefits of such flexibility and time-to-market are highly valued," notes Jonathan Bergey, director of business development at Forza Silicon.

The company offers complete, end-to-end custom imager design and integrated production services to get a product to market. To view a live demonstration of the new, Forza 100+ MP CAM Platform, please visit Forza Silicon's booth # 939 at SPIE DSS, Baltimore Convention Center, Baltimore, MD, from May 6 - 8, 2014.

BitFlow Introduces 6th Generation Camera Link Frame Grabber: The Axion

BitFlow has offered a Camera Link frame grabbers for almost 15 years. This latest offering, our 6th generation combines the power of CoaXPress with the requirements of Camera Link 2.0. Enabling a single or two camera system to operate at up to 850 MB/S per camera, the Axion-CL family is the best choice for CL frame grabber. Like the Cyton-CXP frame grabber, the Axion-CL leverages features such as the new StreamSync system, a highly optimized DMA engine, and expanded I/O capabilities that provide unprecedented flexibility in routing. There are two options available; Axion 1xE & Axion 2xE. The Axion 1xE is compatible with one base, medium, full or 80-bit camera offering PoCL, Power over Camera Link, on both connectors. The Axion 2xE is compatible with two base, medium, full or 80-bit cameras offering PoCL on both connectors for both cameras. The Axion-CL is a culmination of the continuous improvements and updates BitFlow has made to Camera Link frame grabbers.
