ISL-4800 Image Sensor Tester

The Jova Solutions ISL-4800 is the highest performance interface and test solutions available for image sensors, digital cameras and video devices. This single piece of hardware supports nearly every sensor, camera, and video source interface standard in existence. A fully integrated, off-the-shelf, hardware/software tester package, ISL-4800 provides a full range of interfaces, controls, advanced image analysis test routines, evaluation and characterization capabilities in one easy-to-use, inexpensive, small-footprint solution. The ISL-4800 is a powerful, affordable, flexible, and expandable solution that supports future requirements with field upgradable FPGA code and a flexible interface board architecture. 



  • Rugged and Robust down to smallest details such as built-in isolation relays and voltage level buffers
  • Reduce test times and increase test coverage with built-in instrumentation
  • Rapid deployment and field reprogrammable
  • Integrated LED control
  • Ability to integrate with a production wafer prober
  • Automation software API (DLL, LabVIEW, TestStand)

The ISL-4800 contains embedded programmable power supplies, an integrated master clock, sensor I2C/SPI communications, and integrated frame capture electronics. The Image Sensor Lab ISL-3200 hardware also comes with the Image Sensor Lab application software, which provides full control over the ISL-3200 hardware, as well as sensor control and communications. Image Sensor Lab application software also includes a powerful scripting engine for automating common configuration setups or mode changes. Simple histogram analysis and raw pixel data analysis are provided by the Basic version, with many additional analysis routines available in the optional advanced package.
