3D IMAGE ACQUISITION > FPGA PEAK DETECTOR

AQSENSE light stripe peak detector allow the detection of the maximum intensity point of a laser stripe, with sub-pixel accuracy (1/64th of a pixel).

The detector operates on 2D images, in a row or column-wise manner and is able to perform at the maximum detection accuracy at the maximum camera speed.

The peak detector is provided as an IP block to be incorporated into FPGA chips, enabling the fast acquisition on customizable, programmable machine vision hardware.

Easy to integrate into existing Xilinx (Spartan3 or higher) or Altera (Cyclone or higher) FPGA based camera control designs.

Technical Features:
  • Pipelined design
  • One pixel input per clock cycle
  • 1 to 10 TAP operation
