MultiPix Imaging has launched the Videology 21B44, a 14 x 14mm CMOS VGA colour board camera suitable for applications in security, industrial and environmentally demanding OEM markets. The CMOS ¼-inch VGA imager is a rugged BGA package specified for temperature ranges of -40°C to 85°C and has a sensitivity of less than 1lux.
The camera can fit into small, covert housings like outlet covers or doorbells. It is equally suited for installation inside or outside a vehicle, inside an exposed exterior surveillance dome, or integrated into any equipment that regularly tolerates high temperatures.
The 21B44 is able to withstand vibration, and so is suitable for automotive and test equipment applications. The camera has low power consumption and a twisted pair balanced video output option using Cat 5 cable eliminates the expense of coax cables. It is supplied with NTSC/PAL (true two field) analogue composite video output.
