Enhancing imaging with edge analytics and connectivity
D3 Engineering supports your product development team with our expertise in Embedded Vision. We understand image sensors, optics, video analytics, and imaging system design. Working with a wide range of image sensors and processors, we design and optimize the complete camera chain: image capture, image processing, encoding, display, optics, motion, and wired or wireless connectivity.
We help you add value to your products by giving your users more power to see and control their world. Let us help you get to market faster, while reducing the risks and costs of new product development.
We offer a range of product development services. We can deliver full-cycle embedded system development: hardware and firmware design, application software development, validation, and transition to manufacturing. Or we can help your product development team with specific tasks such as processor selection, system architecture, sensor integration, and algorithm integration and optimization.
Expertise in Vision
IMAGE SENSORS | We select the best combination of sensor size, frame rate, shutter type, and specialized features to meet your performance goals. We work with a wide range of image sensors and camera interfaces including MIPI CSI-2, HiSPi, LVDS, and SLVS.
VISION PROCESSORS | We use our expertise in all of the accelerated cores within today’s rapidly expanding SoC architectures to give you maximum image processing performance. Our core skills include configuring and tuning the image signal processor, real-time image processing, and video encoding (i.e., H.265 and JPEG). We develop custom drivers and board support packages.
CONNECTIVITY | Our vision systems feature wired and wireless connectivity including USB 2.0 and 3.0, CoaXPress (CXP), Camera Link, FPD-Link III, GMSL, GigE, 802.11 WiFi, and Bluetooth.
OPTICS| We have ready access to high-performance COTS lens assemblies as well as custom lens system design from our base in Rochester, NY.
MOTION CONTROL | We optimize focus, shutter, and aperture control using our strengths in motor selection and characterization, design and optimization of the motion control loop, and development of real-time embedded firmware.
Our proven Reference Designs and Development Kits feature vision processor technology from Texas Instruments, Qualcomm, NVIDIA, Intel FPGA (Altera), and others. Our real-time embedded software framework provides the basis for your custom application. Use our DesignCore® Platforms to guide your own development, or work with D3 to customize one for your system.
