Application Examples

Speed Camera Control

The speed camera control application is based on a Computer-On-Module concept with a PowerPC MPC 8245 on a standard ESM COM and all interfaces routed to a custom carrier board.

Train Surveillance Systems

This application is a combination of a digital video recorder and a video display server and is part of a larger communication and surveillance system based on CompactPCI.
