mvBlueLYNX-M7

mvBlueLYNX-M7 - smart camera modules with 2 sensor interfaces
  • PowerPC CPU with 400 MHz
  • Linux operating system
  • 2 sensor interfaces for stereo or mixed usage (sync/async)
  • 512 MB DDR2-RAM
  • 64 MB NAND Flash + 8 MB NOR Flash
  • Hardware Real-Time Controller (HRTC)

The mvBlueLYNX-M7 is a practical and complete single-board image processing system with numerous innovations. The mvBlueLYNX-M7 is based on a new hardware design, which allows both three-dimensional (stereo) or mixed acquisitions. Additionally, with the PowerPC processor the system is suitable for all image processing applications even those with high performance demands like 3D measurings or traffic monitorings.
