FL3-U3-13S2 USB 3.0 cameras
Point Grey has launched the FL3-U3-13S2, the latest Flea3 USB 3.0 camera models. The cameras are based on monochrome and colour versions of the Sony IMX035, a high-quality CMOS sensor capable of generating 1.3 Megapixel (1,328 x 1,024) images at 120fps. The IMX035 uses Sony's Exmor technology, which combines the speed of CMOS with advanced-quality image sensor technologies accumulated through the development of CCDs.
The ultra-compact Flea3 measures just 29 x 29 x 30mm and provides a unique set of features dedicated to maximising USB 3.0 reliability, including a 32MB frame buffer for image retransmission; on-camera power, temperature, and status monitoring; and in-field updatable firmware. Point Grey has also developed its own USB 3.0 link layer IP, which has been implemented in an FPGA. The Flea3 USB 3.0 camera models are ideal for applications in machine vision and factory automation; scientific applications such as astronomy, microscopy and biophotonics; and applications such as video conferencing and kiosk imaging.
