Lauded as the market's first fully programmable, embedded Linux camera, the miniHiPerCam employs the ELNIOS operating system and is available in color and monochrome versions. The camera is packaged in a rugged aluminum case that is the same size as a small surveillance camera. Both color and monochrome models employ a CMOS image sensor and provide a resolution of 640 x 480 pixels and a frame rate of 15 fps or 30 fps. The controller board supports a PowerPC 823 processor operating at a clock speed of 50 MHz. For images and run-time data, 16 MB of memory is available; and 8 MB of flash memory hosts the ELNIOS with an HTTP server and application software. Other features of the Linux camera include two RS-232 ports and one 10 Mb Ethernet port. Pricing starts at $1,080 for an evaluation unit. AMERICAN ELTEC INC., Las Vegas, NV. (702) 878-4085.
