Active Silicon, the imaging subsidiary of Steatite, designs, manufactures and supplies imaging products and embedded systems allowing the capture, processing, and transmission of image data in high performance and critical environments.

World-class products include innovative embedded systems for IoT and related applications, pioneering autofocus-zoom cameras and high-speed acquisition cards allowing continuous real-time, high-resolution image capture.

Optimized to the specific application, an embedded vision system is a cost-effective and highly reliable solution, designed for long product life. Our embedded vision systems meet various safety, quality and medical standards as appropriate, as well as being designed to retain the same fit, form and function for many years.

Active Silicon offers camera interface boards for autofocus-zoom block cameras and adapters for host-end acquisition and video format conversion. The camera interface boards for Tamron AF-zoom cameras, Sony FCB block cameras, Harrier AF-zoom cameras and others, take data from the proprietary block camera interface and convert into industry standard formats such as 3G-SDI / HD-SDI, USB 3.0, HDMI, Ethernet H.264 IP and MIPI-CSI2.

We offer a range of autofocus-zoom block cameras. Camera features include multiple output options, compact size, global shutter, powerful zoom and our own range of Harrier cost-effective block cameras. Applications include industrial inspection, surveillance, traffic solutions and medical imaging.

Our portfolio comprises CoaXPress and Camera Link frame grabbers and, with CXP-12 grabbers, it includes the fastest acquisition cards on the market.
