FSM:GO offers a curated selection of pre-selected sensors paired with optimally focused lenses. Thus, delivering superior Off-The-Shelf image quality. This latest innovation from FRAMOS represents a significant step forward in simplifying the embedded vision development process. Hence, making it both cost-effective and time efficient.
Suitable for a broad spectrum of applications, FSM:GO is deployable across many industries. This includes sports and security. In addition, they can enhance the capabilities of conferencing cameras, drones, and smart traffic systems. Most importantly, these optical sensors also play role in industrial automation, surveying, mapping, and logistics.
André Brela, Product Manager at FRAMOS, reflects on the insights gained from over five years of product evolution within the FRAMOS Sensor Module Ecosystem. Brela said the journey to developing custom optical sensor modules comes with complexities. That is, from selecting the right sensor and lens to navigating compatibility issues and managing consistent product performance.
Moreover, Brela said, “These challenges often deter vision system developers and production engineers. Drawing from our deep-seated experience, we have embedded our customers’ fundamental requirements into FSM:GO – a practical, readily deployable solution.“
FSM:GO is not only a versatile prototyping tool but also stands ready for immediate deployment in mass production. Moreover, its introduction signifies FRAMOS’s dedication to alleviating the challenges of developing and manufacturing optical sensor modules. Thus, enabling clients to concentrate on device design and software development.
Each FSM:GO module comes with a complete suite of necessary hardware components, software drivers, ISP tuning packages, and extensive documentation. Hence, ensuring seamless integration with prominent platforms such as NVIDIA’s® Jetson™ and NXP i.MX8MP.
This compatibility harnesses the power of leading embedded processing platforms to maximize performance.
The integrated FRAMOS PixelMate™ connector, offers an array of connection options such as MicroCoax, FFC, and GMSL. Thus, ensuring engineers have the adaptability to select the ideal cabling based on system specifications or application demands.
FSM:GO comes initially in three variants, featuring the latest Sony Starvis2 color image sensors with 2MP (IMX662), 8MP (IMX678, or 12MP (IMX676). Each with a suite of lens options — from narrow to fisheye. These configurations adapt to multiple fields of view, diverse lighting situations, and varying working ranges. Thus, making the modules versatile for a wide array of applications.
