August 2, 2018 – D3 Engineering has introduced a line of camera modules for automotive and industrial vision. The DesignCore D3RCM Camera Modules integrate OmniVision or SONY image sensors with Texas Instruments’ FPD-Link III SerDes for digital performance and resolution. The miniature cameras in sealed enclosures are designed to meet IP69K standards.
D3 has drawn on its experience in embedded vision and autonomous systems to create the product line. Automotive vision applications include Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) such as surround view, backup camera, mirror replacement, and blind spot monitoring. Industrial vision applications include unattended surveillance systems, process automation, and machine vision.
DesignCore D3RCM Rugged Camera Modules weigh less than 10 g excluding lens. Several models feature on-sensor and internal image signal processing (ISP). Power over coax (PoC), with multiplexed video stream and control channel, helps system integration.
The camera modules are manufactured with actively aligned optics and 100% unit inspection. The sealed housings have integrated FAKRA connectors. Qualification tested and fully validated models are available for automotive production. Other models are production-ready for customer validation. The cameras are available in volumes from 10 to 10,000 or more.
