USB 2.0 camera
RICHMOND, BC, Canada, July 1, 2009 – Point Grey Research Inc. has expanded its Firefly MV line of FireWire and USB digital cameras with the introduction of a 1.3-megapixel USB 2.0 model.

The FMVU-13S2C is designed around the color version of the sensitive ?-in. Sony IMX035 CMOS image sensor, which features a 1328 × 1048 square pixel array, a high signal-to-noise ratio, good color fidelity, rolling shutter and no smear. The easy-to-use USB 2.0 digital interface, small size and low price make this new model a suitable choice for use in microscopy, bioscience, medical and visualization applications.

The camera's high-speed USB 2.0 480-Mb/s digital interface benefits customers who want to simply plug the camera into a computer without connecting a separate interface card. It transfers both data and power and enables acquisition of full 1328 × 1048 raw Bayer images at a speed of 23 fps or VGA at 60 fps, using either of the sensor's 2 × 2-pixel binning or region-of-interest modes.

The camera is housed in a compact and lightweight 44 × 24 × 34-mm plastic case and is equipped with a CS-mount lens holder, a removable IR cut filter and a 7-pin general purpose input/output connector that can be used to synchronize the camera to external devices, such as a trigger or light source. A board-level option, which measures just 40 × 25 mm, is available to qualified OEMs.

The camera complies with the IIDC v1.31 specification. Users of other of the company’s cameras will benefit from the seamless software integration that is available via the FlyCapture software development kit, which is compatible with both FireWire and USB 2.0 cameras, uses the same API and includes support for ActiveX, TWAIN and DirectShow.
