Marlin cameras are equipped with many useful real-time image pre-processing functions. They are performed by the FPGA inside the camera – with no additional CPU load on the host, so that an inexpensive system is sufficient.

  • Programmable LUT, white balance, hue, saturation
  • Debayering
  • Auto gain, auto exposure
  • Color correction
  • Shading correction
  • Sub-sampling, 2x binning (b/w)
  • AOI (with speed increase)
  • Sequence mode - changes the image settings on the fly
  • Image mirror
  • Deferred image transport
  • SIS (Secure Image Signature, enhanced time stamp)
  • Storable user settings

With its modular and flexible design and the real-time pre-processing functions, this machine vision camera (IEEE 1394) fits for many applications:

  • Machine vision
  • Quality control
  • Semiconductor inspection
  • Industrial inspection
  • ... and many more


Application Case Studies:

  • Packaging Inspector
    Industrial inspection: Advanced machine vision system ensures 100% quality of food packaging using 53 digital cameras from Allied Vision Technologies
  • Effective Medicine
    Pharmaceutical corporation Boehringer Ingelheim switches to one- hundred-percent testing of medication capsules with digital cameras from Allied Vision Technologies.

  • Quality Down to the Last Detail
    Industrial Inspection: Optimized Gap Dimensions in Automobile Construction.

  • Do perfect eyeglasses exist?
    How Rodenstock, a world leader in ophthalmic optics, uses individual face measurement for tailor-made eyeglasses.

  • Mass and Class
    Industrial Inspection: Even for small mass-produced parts, it is worth it to use industrial image-processing systems to guarantee first-class quality. At NP Plastics, small plastic rollers for document binders are checked 600 times per minute in three dimensions.

  • Full Scale Testing
    Fatigue test of CF-18 aircraft at NRC Aerospace (National Research Council of Canada).
