RICHMOND, British Columbia, May 4, 2015 — New 1.4-MP global shutter CCD models extend Point Grey Research Inc.’s Grasshopper3 family of USB3 Vision cameras. The Grasshopper3 GS3-U3-15S5 models are based on color and monochrome versions of the Sony ICX825, a 2⁄3-in. EXview HAD CCD II sensor capable of streaming 1384 × 1032-resolution images at 45 fps. This sensor is the next generation of the ICX285 CCD, which has been suited for scientific imaging because of its large pixel size, high saturation capacity and dynamic range. The new ICX825 improves upon the imaging performance and frame rate of its predecessor while maintaining the same optical format and pixel size. The new camera models have scientific and industrial applications, including fluorescence microscopy, electronics assembly and inspection.
