10 Mpixel USB3 Vision camera now in serial production

POSTED 04/30/2013

CMOS sensors by Aptina are among the first round of the new USB3 Vision camera’s serial production. The sensors are characterized in particular by their A-Pix™ technology, which enhances the quantum efficiency by the use of light guides and deep photo diodes. This minimizes crosstalk and leads to sharper images with vibrant colors even in low-light conditions.
The smallest sensor at the start is the 1/3“ 3.1 Mpixels color sensor with a resolution of 2052 x 1536 pixels. This rolling shutter sensor manages a maximum frame rate of 30 Hz at full resolution and is suitable for demanding full-HD applications with 60 images per second.
The second sensor has a resolution of 3664 x 2748 pixels (10 Mpixels). There are color and gray scale models available. The 1/2.35“ rolling shutter sensor reaches a frame rate of 7 Hz at full resolution.
All sensors feature a Global Reset Release trigger functionality with the possibility to control a flash function to minimize rolling shutter artifacts.
The mvBlueFOX3 is suited for industrial applications and in spite of its size of 39 x 39 x 24 mm (B x H x D), its features make it a real giant: along with the integrated 256 Mbytes image memory, the mvBlueFOX3 has a huge FPGA with many smart features for image processing as well as 2/4 digital inputs and outputs. The camera family is compliant with the standards GenICam™ and USB3 Vision®. Drivers are available for Linux and Windows. Furthermore, the camera is supported by image processing libraries which are compliant with USB3 Vision®.
