The capacity of a high speed camera in taking high speed images has been evaluated using CMOS image sensors. There
are 2 types of image sensors, namely, CCD and CMOS sensors. CMOS sensor consumes less power than CCD sensor
and can take images more rapidly. High speed camera with built-in CMOS sensor is widely used in vehicle crash tests
and airbag controls, golf training aids, and in bullet direction measurement in the military. The High Speed Camera
System made in this study has the following components: CMOS image sensor that can take about 500 frames per
second at a resolution of 1280*1024; FPGA and DDR2 memory that control the image sensor and save images; Camera
Link Module that transmits saved data to PC; and RS-422 communication function that enables control of the camera
from a PC.
