Cohu Electronics has released a small CMOS camera with FireWire output that is designed for medical imaging applications and for manufacturers of automated process equipment. The model 7200 operates in a monochrome progressive-scan VGA format with full-frame readout at up to 50 fps and at 8 bits per pixel. It is DCAM-II-compliant and interfaces with several third-party software packages. The camera can be triggered via an external sync signal or can be operated in a free-run state. It is designed for smooth integration into products using machine vision. Four discrete outputs enable triggering of strobes, alarms and other cameras.
