IDS Presents Industrial Camera Models with USB 3.1 Interface
Cost-effective project camera series with Sony’s CMOS sensors IMX178 and IMX290
IDS Imaging Development Systems is the first industrial camera manufacturer offering a camera series with future-oriented USB 3.1 Type-C connector: the newly-developed USB 3 uEye LE series. These small, cost-effective project cameras will be available as housed or single-board version with different lens holders. The latest generation of high-performance CMOS sensors will be integrated starting with Sony’s 2 MP IMX290 sensor and 6 MP IMX178 sensor from its STARVIS series. Other CMOS sensors from ON Semiconductor, Sony and e2v will follow. Engineering samples for design-ins will be available in September as serial production is determined for the end of 2016.
With the latest generation of the USB 3 uEye LE series, IDS focusses on the essentials of an industrial camera: small, cost-effective, powerful sensors. Thanks to the compact dimensions (36 x 36 mm) even the new USB 3.0 camera generation can be integrated into a system particularly easily. Like its successful USB 2.0 counterpart, it will be available in different variants: as single-board version without lens holder, single-board version with S-Mount lens holder or CS-/C-Mount lens holder, and as housed version with CS-/C-Mount. The Type-C connector is the first step forward to USB 3.1, and the IDS portfolio provides appropriate cables with both-way pluggable USB connectors. The single-board version comes also with a 10-pin socket providing two general purpose I/Os, trigger and flash, as well as I2C bus for controlling external devices. The single-board cameras of the USB 3 uEye LE camera series are particularly appropriate to form the basis for OEM projects.
