Interconnect Systems Inc. has announced the creation of a Near Sensor Computing business unit that will combine the company?s advanced packaging know-how with FPGA system design to deliver miniaturized sensor solutions.

Targeted at applications ranging from medical imaging, night vision, industrial inspection, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), helmet cameras, and surveillance, the FPGAs will provide small, low-cost engines for sensor processing applications. The near sensor computing modules will move the processor closer to the sensor, thus, decreasing size, cost, latencies, bandwidth requirements, and power consumption across the entire system. These modules are configured to order with processor, memory, and I/O resources tailored to each customer?s specific requirements.

The company is already producing the NSC-625 and the NSC-2200 modules. The NSC-625 is a 25 x 25mm form factor, while the NSC-2200 holds a 40 x 60mm footprint. Both use a miniaturized processor, memory, and I/O modules delivered pre-configured to the specific requirements of the customer?s near sensor computing application. These FPGA systems perform real-time image enhancement, sensor fusion, and object/event recognition for any analog or digital sensor including 4 x HD IR and visible-spectrum video. Output options include 1/10 GigE and GigE Vision, LVDS, Camera Link, Aurora, RS-232, programmable pins, and custom formats.
