EasyMVC stands for Easy Machine Vision Camera. Machine Vision Camera Development Kit for both hardware engineers and software developers who work on machine vision systems.
This kit consists of three major parts, an image sensor board, an FPGA board, and an interface board. By changing the combination thereof, various sensors, IPs, interfaces, etc., which affect the performance of the machine vision system, can be evaluated without requiring any troublesome setup. In addition, sample designs of hardware and software are provided to help short-term and low-cost development. 


  • Evaluate key technologies making up machine vision cameras
    • Cutting-edge CMOS image sensors
    • Various Machine Vision interfaces
    • IP cores that Macnica offers
  • Make it easy to develop prototypes of machine vision camera
    • FPGA design
    • Firmware development
    • Development of Host PC software, etc.
