The SilicamRIK is the successor of our SilicamIGO smart camera that has been used by university in Europe for development of smart camera applications since 2013. The SilicamRIK is a fully programmable smart camera board, which provides simple vision capabilities to small-embedded systems in the form of an intelligent camera.
Sensors: the SilicamRIK houses a 30x30 pixels image sensor that is capable of frame rates up to 105fps. The lens holder accepts any M12 lenses as used in small surveillance cameras and webcams..
Processing: Processing is performed by a dsPIC33EP256MU806, running at 140MHz and giving 70 MIPS performance. This processor has an advanced DSP pipeline giving ample performance for several image processing tasks. All input and output streams are dealt with by SPI-DMA channels leaving all processing power for the application. With this horsepower typical applications such as motion detection, motion estimation, tracking and depth estimation reach easily speeds far over 30 fps. Next to the internal memory, the board can be equipped with an additional 1Mbit SRAM of external memory.
Connections: As communication interfaces, the RIK has an USB 2.0 port and a debug TTL UART connector. Also, it houses a mikrobus connector for future extensions
Programming: SilicamRIK can be programmed in C and C++ using the free MPLABX environment with the xc16 compiler (available as a free student version). Programs are downloaded through the ICSP connector on the board.
Powering: the board is directly powered using the usb port. Alternatively, it can be powered by batteries at 5V. On- board, the input voltage is stabilized to 3.3V. A low-battery warning is raised if the battery voltage goes below 3v. None of the required parts (batteries, USB cable or supply) are included.
Applications: Despite the low resolution, several applications have already been shown on this hardware including background detection, face detection, vehicle classification, speed measurement, motion detection and so on. Some examples of application from the older model (SilicamIGO) can be seen on the SilicamTV youtube channel.
