illunis EMC and mf2280

illunis EMC and mf2280 Bundle

Lightweight camera solutions for drones, embedded systems and industrial applications.
Resolutions from 51Mpix to 250Mpix are available

The EMC is a family of small, light weight cameras with industry standard interfaces. A native connection to the EPIX mf2280 M.2 capture card provides an extremely simple and compact solution for embedded systems. By replacing the standard camera link capture cards and cables with a M.2 card, super high resolution embedded systems and drones are possible.

The EMC offers data rates up to 1370 megabytes per second and support for all camera link modes. The PIXCI® mf2280 camera link frame grabber uses internal M.2M 2280 slots in small computer systems. Space constraints typically require routing of cables to a side of the case or to a nearby camera. COTS Samtec HLCD flexible cables are used to facilitate routing.

The EMC supports all illunis EMC+mf2280 enabled cameras including, 51, 65, 103, 250 Megapixels. Custom versions available.
