Cameras with 10.6-Megapixel Sensor
OBERSULM, Germany, Dec. 22, 2009 – IDS Imaging Development Systems GmbH has launched new USB and GigE cameras designed around a 10.6-megapixel CMOS sensor from Aptina Imaging Corp. The company says that the sensor provides four times the resolution of high-definition television (HDTV) and that, with its ½-in. optical format, it can capture tiny details with high accuracy, even with a large field of view. The models, like all of the company’s uEye cameras, are supplied with an easy-to-use software package that allows seamless integration into existing vision applications.

IDS_GigE.jpgThe USB 2.0 camera models operate at a rate of more than 3 fps in 10.6-megapixel mode, and the GigE models deliver up to 8 fps and can transfer full 12-bit color depth. All models also provide area-of-interest, binning and subsampling modes for quick previews and live image acquisition. HDTV 1080p resolution is achievable, as are rates of more than 100 fps at smaller image sizes.

Built-in scaling enables image size reduction in real time. In this mode the sensor can scale the image size in factors from 1 to 8.

Cameras with the new sensor are available in all of the company’s camera series. The portfolio covers a broad range of USB 2.0 and GigE models, board-level and housing versions, and splash water-resistant cameras that meet the IP65/IP67 standards.

Because the included software package is the same for all uEye cameras, users can quickly upgrade to the 10.6-megapixel models and integrate them within their own applications. The new cameras can be implemented with adjustment of a few camera-specific parameters. The high-resolution models are supported by uEye software version 3.50 onwards. The software can be downloaded for free from the company's Web site in 32- and 64-bit versions for Linux and for Windows XP, Vista and 7.

GLOSSARY
binning
Combining adjacent pixels into one larger pixel, resulting in increased sensitivity and lower resolution, or, in image analysis, excluding objects based on shape, position or area.
photonics
The technology of generating and harnessing light and other forms of radiant energy whose quantum unit is the photon. The science includes light emission, transmission, deflection, amplification and detection by optical components and instruments, lasers and other light sources, fiber optics, electro-optical instrumentation, related hardware and electronics, and sophisticated systems. The range of applications of photonics extends from energy generation to detection to communications and...
