Learn more about machine vision! In our knowledge base we are explaining key technical terms about image processing. We give you an overview to topics like 3D machine vision or the established standards like CameraLink, GigE Vision or GenICam.
This is a technique that applies to most current machine vision sensor
designs. By only reading out a partial number of the horizontal lines
(down to 1 line is possible) on a sensor, the frame rate is increased.
Any data transfer network is only as strong as the weakest link. We have
seen an increase in PC performance in terms of processor speed,
memory access speed, bus speed and architectures, and although these
issues are becoming less critical in many application areas, they still
need to be considered when a PC's CPU loading is high.
In cameras with pixel shift technology the sensor is mounted on a precise piezoelectric crystal stage which allows the CCD to be nano-shifted by 1/3 or 1/2 of a pixel. This enables the standard resolution to be extended by 4 times or even by 9 times. In this way applications that demand ultra high resolution can be realised.
