ADLINK's NEON-1021-M features high performance quad-core Intel® Atom™ processors, speedy multi-ROI image capture, 2MP global shutter image sensors, and PWM lighting control support. High-speed multi-barcode capture by multi-ROI function shortens image processing cycle time, and optimized I/O includes one additional slave GigE Vision camera connection, 4x isolated input, 4x isolated output, and VGA output for maximized integration with external devices. Rugged construction with IP67-rated housing and M12 connectors enables the NEON-1021-M to withstand the harshest industrial environments.
"ADLINK's NEON smart camera series breaks the boundaries of smart camera and embedded vision systems, and the integration of the easy-to-use machine vision software MERLIC makes it a simple matter for system integration to fulfill a wide variety of inspection application needs." -- Simon You, Product Director, Automation Business Center at ADLINK Technology Inc.
MVTec MERLIC is an all-in-one tool for quickly building machine vision applications with no programming requirement. Based on MVTec's extensive machine vision expertise and combining reliable, fast performance with ease of use, the PC-based complete software solution features an image-centric user interface, intuitively guiding the user through the application. Similar to a WYSIWYG editor (what-you-see-is-what-you-get), developers can focus on the image-based display rather than complex lines of code or parameter lists. MERLIC is particularly suited to operations that favor a clear, graphical user interface for configuring imaging functions.

Image-centered user interface
Machine vision application with no need for programming
Integrated tool library
2MP 60 fps resolutions, monochrome global shutter CMOS sensors
Multi-ROI function replaces multi-camera barcode reader solution
Additional GigE Vision 1 slave camera support
