High-density computing with full-size expansion
Zebra® Supersight is a high-density industrial computing platform capable of accommodating up to four computers in a standard 4U enclosure. Each computer or compute cluster is equipped with an embedded Intel® Core™ processor and works alone or together with the others to implement distributed computing. A high-speed PCIe® switched fabric backplane ensures efficient communication and data exchange between compute clusters as necessary. The same backplane accepts full-size PCIe expansion cards for a broad range of image acquisition, network interface, processing offload, and acceleration options from Aurora Imaging and third parties. Zebra Supersight vision controllers—Zebra Supersight Solo, Zebra Supersight Duo, and Zebra Supersight Quad—are fully supported by Aurora Imaging Library, formerly Matrox Imaging Library (MIL), an established collection of software tools for developing industrial imaging applications; this software development kit (SDK) helps developers deliver a complete solution in a timely manner. Backed by a carefully managed lifecycle and consistent long-term availability, the Zebra Supersight series provides a solid foundation for demanding machine vision applications.
Intel Core i7 power and PCIe Gen3 expansion
The Zebra Supersight delivers a high degree of computing performance and image-acquisition flexibility. With its scalable design, it provides the necessary level of performance required by complex machine-vision applications. Each System Host Board (SHB) is powered by an Intel Core i7 processor and can communicate with each other at high speed through a PCIe Gen3 switched fabric backplane. Each system accepts up to 10 full-length and one half-length full-height PCIe cards to suit a wide range of requirements. Zebra Supersight supports image-acquisition boards for all major interfaces—whether analog, Camera Link®, CoaXPress®, DisplayPort™, DVI, GigE Vision®, HDMI™, and SDI—as well as image processing offload using a field-programmable gate array (FPGA). Users can combine the required boards to build a robust, flexible platform for intensive image capture and processing tasks.
Consistent long-term availability
Carefully selected components, coupled with strict change control, ensures consistent long-term supply of the Zebra Supersight. This allows OEMs to maximize return on the original investment without incurring additional costs associated with repeated validation of constantly changing mainstream commercial platforms.
Switched fabric backplane
A unique PCIe Gen3, multi-segmented backplane provides the switched fabric to configure acquisition and processing elements in either one, two, or four computing clusters. The uniqueness of this backplane is that add-in cards can be plugged into any slot and still be assigned to an SHB, even if the card is in a different segment. With 11 PCIe Gen3 slots available, the backplane provides excellent expansion opportunities for Aurora Imaging and third-party video capture, accelerator/co-processor, graphics, and general I/O boards to fulfill the needs of demanding imaging applications.
Power and storage
A 1,000 W power supply lets the Zebra Supersight system accommodate multiple frame grabber, graphics, and other add-in boards. Integrated 2.5-inch hard drives provide a greater level of shock and vibration resistance over standard desktop models. Quick-release, hot-swappable drive bays with RAID support increase system reliability and facilitate maintenance.
Image acquisition options
Aurora Imaging offers the industry’s most comprehensive line of image acquisition boards for all major interfaces including Camera Link, CoaXPress, DisplayPort, DVI, GigE Vision, HDMI, and SDI, as well as standard and non-standard analog. Refer to the individual Zebra frame grabber datasheets for more information.
FPGA-based image processing is a powerful addition to an image acquisition board, relieving the host processor(s) without consuming additional slots. Refer to the individual Zebra frame grabber datasheets for more information.
Microsoft Windows 10 IoT Enterprise
Zebra Supersight comes pre-loaded with Microsoft Windows® 10 IoT Enterprise (64-bit), which provides the familiarity, functionality, performance, and reliability of standard Windows 10 Enterprise.
Field-proven application development software
A complete imaging platform must include not only hardware but also robust software tools. Aurora Imaging Library1 is a comprehensive SDK with a 25-year history of reliable performance. This toolkit features interactive software and programming functions for image capture, processing, analysis, annotation, display, and archiving operations, with the accuracy and robustness needed to tackle the most demanding applications. Particularly useful for the Zebra Supersight is Distributed Aurora Imaging Library, a functionality that enables the partitioning of an application across multiple compute clusters with efficient command and data exchange. Refer to the Aurora Imaging Library datasheet for more information. Aurora Imaging Library is licensed for the Zebra Supersight on a per-chassis basis. Zebra Supersight vision controllers automatically grant access to the Aurora Imaging Library interface (GenTL, GigE Vision, and USB3 Vision), DMIL, and industrial/robot communications run-time functionality.
