Matrix Vision has introduced e2v CMOS sensor models of its USB3 Vision camera mvBlueFox3.

The first model is a 1/1.8-inch greyscale and colour sensor with 1.3 megapixel resolution (1,280 x 1,024 pixels). The pipelined global-reset shutter sensor has a maximum frame rate of 60Hz at full resolution. The pipelined functionality means that the sensor can start the exposure of the next frame during the readout of the current frame. This enables higher frame rates.

The 1.3 megapixel sensor is also available with an extended near-infrared (NIR) sensitivity. The greyscale model achieves this improved sensitivity by using deeper areas in the photo diode. This increases the quantum efficiency. The NIR sensor is suitable for applications with low-light conditions.

There is also a 1/1.8-inch greyscale and colour sensor version with 2 megapixel resolution (1,600 x 1,200 pixels). The sensor has a maximum frame rate of 50Hz at full resolution.

The mvBlueFox3 is suitable for industrial applications. It measures 39 x 39 x 24mm, has 256MB image memory, an FPGA with many smart features for image processing, and 2/4 digital inputs and outputs. The camera family is compliant with GenICam and USB3 Vision. Drivers are available for Linux and Windows. Furthermore, the camera is supported by image processing libraries which are compliant with USB3 Vision.
