FPD-Link Cameras Rough & Ready For Industrial Vision Systems

D3 Engineering’s DesignCore D3RCM rugged camera modules are designed for automotive and industrial vision. They integrate OmniVision or SONY image sensors with Texas Instruments’ FPD-Link III SerDes. The miniature cameras in sealed enclosures are designed to meet IP69K standards.


Automotive vision applications include Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) such as surround view, backup camera, mirror replacement, and blind spot monitoring. Industrial vision applications include unattended surveillance systems, process automation, and machine vision.

Fierce AI Week

Register today for Fierce AI Week - a free virtual event | August 10-12

Advances in AI and Machine Learning are adding an unprecedented level of intelligence to everything through capabilities such as speech processing and image & facial recognition. An essential event for design engineers and AI professionals, Engineering AI sessions during Fierce AI Week explore some of the most innovative real-world applications today, the technological advances that are accelerating adoption of AI and Machine Learning, and what the future holds for this game-changing technology.


The modules weigh less than 10g excluding lens and provide reliable thermal management. Several models feature on-sensor and internal image signal processing (ISP). Power over coax (PoC), with multiplexed video stream and control channel, simplifies system integration. The cameras are available in volumes from 10 to 10,000 or more.

Sample quantities are available now from $299. For greater enlightenment, details and specs, feel compelled to download some DesignCore D3RCM datasheets.
