Rochester, NY – April 18, 2023 – D3 is pleased to introduce its next generation of rugged camera modules developed to meet the requirements of multi-camera autonomous and industrial embedded vision applications: The DesignCore® Discovery Series and DesignCore® Velocity Series.   

D3’s new off-the-shelf cameras have been redesigned to maximize image quality, with tuning optimized for artificial intelligence (AI) out-of-the-box in addition to optics that improve signal with higher resolving power and wider apertures. Each Series features wide, medium, and narrow field of view lens options designed for performance-critical applications in autonomous machines, robotics and industrial sensing. Produced in the United States at D3’s integrated on-shore facility, all camera modules come pre-configured for D3’s range of leading NVIDIA, Texas Instruments, and Intel processing platforms while maintaining industry-standard compatibility over FPD-Link III, GMSL2 and MIPI CSI-2 interfaces. Standardized offerings in the expanded lineup are designed for rapid prototyping with an architecture that scales into customized original design manufacturer (ODM) units. 

The flagship camera in the DesignCore® Discovery Series features a Sony IMX390 image sensor, with high dynamic range (HDR), LED flicker mitigation and frame sync support that results in high quality images even in dynamic lighting conditions. Download the DesignCore® Discovery Series datasheet for more information. 

The flagship camera in the DesignCore® Velocity Series camera features an onsemi AR0234 image sensor, which utilizes a global shutter and high-speed frame rates to deliver superior image quality in the toughest moving scenes. Download the DesignCore® Velocity Series datasheet for more information. 

Both Series include a ruggedized PRO lineup featuring premium lenses, lens-specific image science tuning, and IP67 ingress protection. Download the DesignCore® Discovery PRO Series and DesignCore® Velocity PRO Series datasheets to learn more.
