NIT and M8 have released the 8Pico-Cam, which is being described as the world smallest wide dynamic range analogue camera.
The 8Pico-Cam is a ready-to-use monochrome analogue camera with dimensions of 20 x 20 x 18mm. The camera, designed by M8, integrates the NSC0902 WDR sensor from NIT.
It delivers a black-and-white PAL/NTSC (768 x 576 pixel) signal through a standard composite video output, supports a 5-9V power supply and has a M12 (S-Mount) Lens.
The sensor is integrated on a single 18 x18mm board and provides high-quality WDR images in a single shot with minimal power consumption. The camera is offered with aluminium housing but can also be supplied to OEM integrators as a single electronic board.
The company says the 8Pico-Cam has been specially designed for orbital or seam welding control process, industrial applications or multi-purpose applications where the image quality and space are important.
