FL3-U3-88S2C USB 3.0 camera

Share this on social media:

Point Grey has added a model to its line of Flea3 USB 3.0 cameras. This model delivers 8.8 Megapixel colour images at 21fps (185MB/s) in an ultra-compact, low-cost package.

The FL3-U3-88S2C features Sony's IMX121 sensor with Exmor R back-illuminated CMOS architecture. By increasing quantum efficiency and reducing noise, Exmor R improves sensitivity and dynamic range for sharp, high-quality colour images. The 4,096 x 2,160 resolution combined with the ease of USB 3.0 and the camera's small size makes the new Flea3 suitable for a variety of high resolution colour applications including automatic optical inspection, ophthalmology, interactive multimedia, and broadcast.

The camera line measures just 29 x 29 x 30mm and provides a unique set of features dedicated to maximizing USB 3.0 reliability, including a 32MB frame buffer; on-camera power, temperature, and status monitoring; and in-field updatable firmware. The camera also provides colour interpolation, look-up table, gamma correction, and pixel binning functionality.
