Basler to release USB3 cameras in 2012

Camera specialist Basler, which has been spearheading the development of USB3 Vision, will offer standard compliant USB 3.0 cameras once the standard is released in 2012. The standard is being hosted by the Automated Imaging Association (AIA).

Henning Tiarks, head of product management at Basler, commented: 'Basler as a leading supplier for industrial cameras has pushed forward all standardisations so far. Therefore, for us it was self-evident to get involved in the USB3 Vision standard as well. Our customers can rely 100 per cent on Basler that our USB 3.0 cameras coming forth next year will be compliant with this standard and will work perfectly with other products following the standard.'

Basler is convinced that USB 3.0 will gradually establish itself next to Gigabit Ethernet as an important interface technology for applications in the fields of industry, medicine and traffic. This interface combines some interesting features: It transmits bandwidths up to 300MB/s, supports plug and play and is real-time capable.
