Keywords:Image sensor? lens? camera?

E-con Systems added See3CAM_CU130 to the See3CAM family of USB3.0 UVC- compliant cameras. The See3CAM_CU130 is based on AR1820HS CMOS image sensor from Aptina Imaging and is provided with the S-mount (M12) lens mount. It houses an image signal processor chip that performs auto functions (exposure, white balance, etc.) in addition to the complete image signal processing pipeline that provides quality images and video along with the optional MJPEG compression.

In addition, this USB 3.0 camera supports Ultra HD (3840 x 2160) video streaming at 30fps in MJPEG over USB3.0. The still image capture is supported at 13Mpx resolution in both uncompressed BMP and compressed JPEG format. This UVC compliant camera is plug-and-play in both Windows and Linux. In Windows, the camera is exposed as a DirectShow device and in Linux, as a V4L2 capture source.

The See3CAM_CU130 camera measures 30mm x 30mm in size and is constructed as a two-PCB solution. The camera has the S-Mount (M12 lens mount) enabling the customers to use any off-the-shelf lenses for different applications demanding different lenses. The USB3.0 baseboard contains the USB3.0 connector, an indication LED and the GPIO header. Customers can also use the Trigger signal available on the GPIO connector to provide external Trigger signal for still image capture. The STROBE signal of the GPIO connector can be used to enable the LED Flash for external illumination.

The See3CAM_CU130 is ideal for customer applications where high-resolution 13Mpx still images or video are required. With S-mount lens holder, the See3CAM_CU130 is ideal for medical applications such as digital microscopy, document scanning cameras, optical character recognition applications, quality/inspection applications, high-resolution microscopic/magnification applications, etc. It is also highly suitable for high-quality video streaming, video conferencing and surveillance application.

The See3CAM_CU130 is based on the AR1820HS CMOS image sensor, with a S-mount (M12) lens mount and Ultra HD support for video streaming in MJPEG over USB3.0

The See3CAM_CU130 is a 13Mpx UVC-compliant USB3.0 SuperSpeed camera with a built-in Image Signal Processor chip. This camera is based on 1/2.3" optical format AR1820HS image sensor from Aptina with a pixel size of 1.25?. The See3CAM_CU130 can stream Ultra HD (3840 x 2160) also sometimes referred as 4K2K resolution at 30fps over USB3.0 interface in MJPEG format. This can also stream Full HD (1080p) at 30fps and HD (1280 x 720) at 60fps in MJPEG format and uncompressed YUV422 format. The 13Mpx resolution streaming is supported at 5fps in uncompressed format and 13fps in MJPEG format over USB3.0.

The 13Mpx still image capture is supported in both uncompressed and JPEG formats. The external GPIO for Still Image Trigger and LED STROBE feature can be leveraged to build high- resolution camera for various demanding applications. The See3CAM_CU130 is also backward compatible with USB2.0 although at limited frame rates and fewer resolutions. Above all, this camera is USB Video Class (UVC Class) compliant and works without any additional device drivers.
