e-con Systems, a company with more than two decades of experience in designing, developing, and manufacturing OEM cameras, recently launched an extensive multi-camera solution for the Qualcomm Robotics RB5 Development Kit. This solution allows connecting up to 6 cameras (MIPI or GMSL2 or a combination of both) simultaneously.
e-con Systems’ camera solution, along with Qualcomm’s high compute power of 15 TOPS, low power consumption, and thermal dissipation, is designed for drones, delivery robots and autonomous shopping systems.
According to e-con Systems, some of the highlights include:
- Multi-camera Support: Connect up to six cameras, either MIPI or GMSL2 or a combination of both, to enable imaging from multiple angles/perspectives.
- Camera Portfolio Compatibility: Ensure compatibility with different resolutions, shutter types, chroma, HDR and NIR.
- Full Product Development: Get a complete solution in the form of full product development, thereby simplifying the lifecycle.
- Qualcomm ISP Tuning: Use e-con Systems’ ISP expertise for fine-tuning the Qualcomm ISP for AE, AWB, HDR, color reproduction, etc.
The Qualcomm Robotics RB5 Kit is a heterogeneous computing platform combining advanced connectivity and high-accuracy AI technology. The RB5 development kit is built around the Qualcomm QRB5165 processor, a powerful and customized chipset designed to meet the demanding requirements of robotics applications.
While the RB5 development kit provides a solid foundation for robotics applications, it has certain limitations when it comes to range of cameras supported, according to e-con Systems.
“Qualcomm QRB5165 processor with impressive 15 TOPS of compute power and low power consumption has opened new horizons for robotics applications,” said Gomathi Sankar, business unit head, industrial, at e-con Systems. “These applications demand advanced camera solutions to leverage the full potential of this RB5 Robotics kit. Recognizing this need, e-con Systems has taken the initiative to develop an innovative solution that bridges the gap and empowers the RB5 kit with robust multi-camera capabilities. Leveraging the partnership with Qualcomm, we’re confident in providing camera solutions with wide compatibility and flexibility to match our customers’ diverse needs.”
