Ethernet camera comes to cars to save lives

 Ethernet camera

Micrel Inc. and Silicon Micro Systems (SMS) have teamed up to develop an HDR-CMOS megapixel Ethernet camera for automotive and industrial systems, which features unique low emissions networking solutions.

The camera, part of First Sensor's (mother company of SMS) Blue Eagle's line, features light sensitive, high dynamic range (>100dB) and wide field of view (>190 degrees). Ideal for applications such as surround view and blind spot detection for automotive and industrial machine vision, the camera exhibits excellent resistance against harsh environmental conditions like mechanical shocks and vibrations, with a dust and water tight housing according to IP68/IP6k9k.

The megapixel Ethernet camera is just 26mm3 in size and significantly reduces cable harness costs by providing both Ethernet data transmission and power over the same low-cost unshielded twisted-pair wiring. Based on Micrel's new Quiet-WIRE IEEE standard Ethernet transceiver technology for reduced electro-magnetic emissions, it features IEEE 802.3az Energy Efficient Ethernet support, sub micro Amp standby power consumption with signal detect activation and fast link up.
