EDATEC’s AI Cameras powered by Raspberry Pi CM4

Nov 23, 2023 — by Giorgio Mendoza 266 views

EDATEC’s CM4 AI Camera series, comprising the ED-AIC2000 and ED-AIC2100 models are designed to target an extensive range of applications, from barcode scanning to AI-based defect detection for industrial settings.

Both models are powered by the Broadcom BCM2711, a robust quad-core Cortex-A72 (ARM v8) 64-bit SoC clocked at 1.5GHz. Storage options are versatile, with 8GB, 16GB, and 32GB eMMC variants available, catering to different data requirements.

At the heart of these cameras lies a high-resolution 2.0MP monochrome image sensor with a global shutter, capable of capturing 2 million pixels, with an optional upgrade to 2.3 million pixels.

This sensor achieves up to 70 FPS sampling rate, enabling ultra-fast image acquisition crucial in dynamic industrial environments. Optional polarizer accessories are available in half or full configurations.
