Lattice And Intellivision Announce Intelligent HD Video Analytics For The HDR-60 Camera Development Kit At ISC West

Lattice Semiconductor Corporation (NASDAQ: LSCC) today announced that it will be demonstrating a LatticeECP3™ FPGA-based video camera supporting intelligent HD video analytics from IntelliVision at Lattice booth 2140 at the ISC West Conference in Las Vegas, March 28-30, 2012.

The low cost, low power LatticeECP3 FPGA on the HDR-60 Camera Development Kit integrates a complete suite of intelligent video analytics from IntelliVision combined with the IONOS ISP pipeline from Helion GmbH, enabling the design of low cost, small form factor smart cameras. The LatticeECP3 FPGA can interface directly to a variety of HD sensors, process the image for intelligent analytics and output the video through its high-speed I/O or through a combination of its integrated SERDES channels, making the solution very compelling for security and, in particular, HDcctv camera applications.

The intelligence suite developed by IntelliVision allows OEMs easy access to a host of features that will not only allow for product differentiation but will help developers and manufacturers easily create a "Smart Security Camera." The suite includes intelligent video motion detection (iVMD), which can differentiate between an animal and a person, sending alerts only when necessary. Intelligent Intrusion Detection (IID) sends alerts when someone opens a door or enters a restricted space. With the Camera Tamper Detection (CTD) function, one can be alerted and act accordingly if a camera has been moved, blocked or knocked out of focus.

Bringing these video analytics features to the edge of the surveillance network can relieve server strain and allow for greater scalability, because fewer servers are required to keep the security network operating at its full potential. In addition, the functionality that has been added to the HDR-60 Camera Development Kit makes the surveillance infrastructure more efficient. Not only are costs saved on servers, but false alarms and human errors can be reduced, offering better security at a lower cost. Security is also improved due to proactive surveillance. For example, the camera can send an alarm so action can be taken immediately, rather than forensically reviewing the video only after the security breach has occurred.

"We are delighted to have been selected by Lattice Semiconductor to develop their onboard analytics solution. We know they had their choice of many video analytics companies. IntelliVision's analytics and the innovative LatticeECP3 FPGA will work together to allow all camera vendors to develop smart cameras quickly and easily. Lattice Semiconductor is a pleasure to work with, and we look forward to their continued success," said Steve Viegas, Director, OEM Sales at IntelliVision.

"We are continuously expanding our HDR-60 ecosystem. We are excited to have collaborated with IntelliVision to provide video analytics for our LatticeECP3 FPGA family," said Kambiz Khalilian, Lattice Strategic Marketing Manager for Cameras and Displays. "Our comprehensive sensor-to-display FPGA-based image signal processing solution, combined with intelligent video analytics algorithms from IntelliVision, provides an ideal platform for OEMs to develop smart security cameras."

In addition to the HDR-60, visitors to Lattice booth #2140 at ISC West can see demonstrations of various image sensor bridges and a dual image sensor design. Visitors will have the opportunity to speak with Lattice senior executives and technical specialists about their own camera design requirements.

Banner Engineering DF-G3 Discrete Fiber Amplifier Features World-Class Long Range Sensing Capability

Banner Engineering introduces its DF-G3 discrete long-range fiber amplifier with dual digital displays for use with plastic and glass fiber optic assemblies. Featuring increased sensing power, the DF-G3 can sense more than 3 meters (10 ft.) with opposed mode fibers or more than 1 meter (3 ft.) with diffuse mode fibers. The extra power provides increased detection reliability for dark targets at long range and enhanced detection sensitivity when using specialty fiber assemblies for large area and small part detection applications. The DF-G3 is available with a single discrete output or two dual discrete outputs. The dual discrete outputs can be independently taught to trigger at different intensity values, which is ideal for correct part-in-place or error-proofing, bottle down, and edge guiding applications. “We developed the DF-G3 fiber amplifier to meet our customers’ need to precisely detect smaller targets at longer ranges” said Dennis Smith, Senior Marketing Manager, Banner E

IDEC Releases New Line of High Efficiency Power Supplies

IDEC Corporation announces the PS5R-V line of DIN-rail power supplies, offering their customers high-efficiency in a compact form factor at competitive prices. These power supplies suit a wide range of needs in the industrial marketplace, and carry all of the required certifications necessary for use in these demanding applications. This next generation of the industry standard PS5R power supply family has updated features and specifications to meet current and future needs. The PS5R-V line of power supplies includes 10W, 15W, 30W, 60W and 120W versions, with additional versions coming soon. These power supplies have a very compact form factor with overall dimensions reduced by up to 25% from previous generations. The reduced form factors combine with DIN-rail mounting to free up valuable control panel space and reduce installation costs. Operating temperature ranges up to -25 to +75 degrees C offer more versatility. These extended operating temperature ranges often allow these p


TURCK is now offering the option to completely shield M8 picofast ® cordsets by connecting a braided shield directly to the coupling nut. This provides a cost-effective and reliable connection with 100 percent cable and connector shielding, which protects against electromagnetic and radio frequency interference. The 3 and 4-pin cordsets are available with flexlife ® PVC or PUR jacketed cable. All connectors deliver IEC IP 67 protection. The M8 picofast line, like most TURCK cordsets, provides male or female, straight and right angle connectors, standard and custom lengths, and pigtails or extensions. Fully encapsulated mating receptacles are also offered, completing the system.
