Vision Components GmbH recently extended its VC BoardCam family of intelligent cameras without housing with the introduction of the VCSBC4012 camera, targeting industrial applications. The 5Mpixel units are designed for OEM manufacturers.

All components of the new camera are installed on a board measuring 40mm x 120mm, which makes it easy to integrate into a wide range of applications. It features a CMOS sensor with a programmable resolution up to 2,592 pixels x 1,944 pixels and a TI 400MHz processor with a 3,200MIPS computing power. It also comes with 64Mbyte DRAM, an Ethernet interface as well as two digital inputs and four outputs (open collector).

The intelligent camera, which is available in colored or black-and-white model, is suitable for low-light conditions. An electronic rolling shutter ensures short exposure times. At full resolution, the frame rate is 11.6fps. VGA skipping allows for a maximum frame rate of 102fps.
