Industrial Cameras with USB 3.1 Interface

Sept. 13, 2016
The USB 3 uEye LE series from IDS 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. The cameras will be available as housed or single-board version with different lens holders. The first in the series, the UI-3860LE with Sony IMX290, features a rolling shutter sensor that provides a resolution of 2 MP (1936 x 1096 px, Full HD: about 120 fps) and aims at users with high demands on image quality and speed. The light-sensitive BSI sensor from Sony STARVIS series is suitable especially for cost-driven applications in mechanical engineering, machine vision, metrology, medical engineering, or microscopy. The company will also be implementing Sony’s IMX178 high-resolution CMOS sensor; the rolling shutter sensor provides a resolution of 6 MP (3088 x 2076) at frame rates of up to 60 fps. The model UI-3880LE is particularly well suited for visualization tasks demanding high image details, e.g. Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS). The BSI sensor from Sony’s STARVIS series will be one of the most light-sensitive sensors in the portfolio of the machine vision camera manufacturer. Due to its 1/1.8-inch sensor format, a wide range of lenses for the USB industrial camera will be available.
