Event Detection Intelligent Camera


EDICAM (Event Detection Intelligent Camera) is a high-speed digital camera developed by Wigner RCP, Cerntech Ltd., Adimtech Ltd., and ProDSP, Ltd. for diagnostic applications in the field of plasma physics. It can detect and process events autonomously, and has several intelligent, adaptive control functions, like speeding up frame rate on the image regions of interest. Cerntech has developed the electronic hardware components of EDICAM including sensor control and read-out, 10 Gb/s optical link, and clock and trigger interfaces.  

EDICAM is available from Adimtech, Ltd.
