Selecting the right imaging sensor can open up a world of possibilities for your applications. Canon’s Evaluation Kits have what you need to explore.

The included camera with a pre-installed sensor of your choice features an open architecture design and flexibility to test many of the sensor’s features and capabilities. Resources based on the camera design and sensor functionality are also available to help accelerate your development when designing your own imaging system.

Help enhance results for imaging applications you’re working on now, or tackle those for which a solution was not yet possible, by leveraging the unique capabilities of CMOS sensors from Canon.

Canon CMOS Sensor Evaluation Kit includes:

  • Evaluation camera with pre-installed sensor (mono, RGB, or RGB-NIR)
  • Accessory package for out-of-the-box operation (quick start guide, power supply, cables)
  • Embedded software to setup the sensor, acquire image data, and communicate over USB 3.1 interface with any USB 3 compliant UI
  • PC-based UI application available for download to communicate with the camera
  • Sensor board design files source code*
  • VHDL code for the FPGA*

*Source code and VHDL code only available upon request with an NDA

Lens is not included

Lens Selection

As the lens plays a critical role in any imaging system, it is imperative that a suitable lens be selected to properly evaluate sensor performance for your end application.

When selecting an appropriate lens, there are several key factors which must be considered: Lens Type, Lens Mount, Focal Length, Sensor Size, Resolving Power, and Aperture, to name a few of the more important ones. Some of these factors are associated with your application, and some are directly tied to how the CMOS sensor will perform.

For more about lens selection, please refer to the information on the specific Evaluation Kits pages or request to speak with a Canon Sensor specialist.
