The Imaging Source's FPD-Link III cameras (SerDes cameras) offer the full functionality of MIPI CSI-2 cameras and allow cable lengths of up to 15m between sensor and computer platform. The Imaging Source offers two camera families featuring the FPD-Link III interface:
For embedded vision applications requiring long cable lengths of up to 15m, The Imaging Source offers FPD-Link III cameras (SerDes cameras) in several form factors. Image data, commands for triggers and I/Os as well as power supply are transmitted via a thin coaxial cable. The Imaging Source has also developed adapter boards, serializers and deserializers to connect cameras to the desired target platform.
FPD-Link III cameras are suitable for both single and multi-camera applications in automotive, IoT and general machine-vision applications. The Imaging Source's FPD-Link III cameras feature the latest CMOS image sensors from onsemi and Sony (global and rolling shutter) and are compatible with a wide range of M12 lenses (C/CS mount lenses are also available).
The Imaging Source offers FPD-Link III cameras in two form factors:
