Prosilica released a digital megapixel CCD camera designed for industrial applications. Extending Prosilica's line of IEEE 1394-based industrial cameras, the EC1380 digital CCD camera comes with Firewire interface (IEEE-1394) and is available in monochrome or color models.

"The ultra compact EC1380 incorporates the incomparable Sony ICX285 CCD progressive scan sensor with ExView HAD technology, making it one of the most sensitive cameras on the market," said Marty Furse, CEO of Prosilica. "It is the smallest and fastest '285-based camera on the market and represents the highest possible quality machine vision camera."

The EC1380 has been optimized for speed and miniaturized to fit into tight areas that are common in machine vision and aerospace applications. The ultra-compact size, light weight and rugged design make it ideal for avionics, robotic semiconductor inspection, and other applications where size and weight are an issue, said the company. Features such as binning (2 x 2, 4 x 4) increase sensitivity and speed and are normally found only on larger, more expensive cameras. The EC1380C color camera also has on-board color interpolation for RGB24, YUV4:1:1, YUV4:2:2, in addition to raw Bayer output.

The EC-1380 is truly plug-and-play. It does not require a frame grabber but communicates with the host computer through its Firewire interface. Software for the camera includes Prosilica's ProViewer application, the camera driver and Prosilica's ProSDK software development kit which are available to customers free of charge. The EC1380 is DCAM-compliant (IIDC 1.31) and can be used with a wide range of popular industrial imaging software.
