USB 3.0 single-board camera with 18 MP color sensor from Aptina

High resolution for narrow installation situations

(PresseBox) (Obersulm, ) It is perfectly suited for narrow installation situations and currently offers the highest resolution in the market: the new UI-359xLE USB 3.0 board-level camera from IDS with Aptina’s 18 MP sensor AR1820HS. The rolling shutter color sensor ensures detailed images providing VGA, 4K Cinema, or 18 MP. Thanks to the latest BSI technology (Backside Illuminated), the 1/2" sensor is very light-sensitive. Thus, it is perfectly suited for high-resolution visualization applications e.g. microscopy, barcode reading, OCR or medical engineering.

As the board measures only 36 x 36 mm, the minimal dimensions make the USB 3.0 board-level camera interesting for small apparatus engineers. They also benefit from the numerous connection options, which include an 8-pin connector with 5 V power supply, trigger and flash, two GPIOs, and an I2C bus to control the peripherals.

The cost-effective industrial camera with a backside-illuminated CMOS sensor delivers images in the following resolutions amongst others: Full HD (1920 x 1080, 37 fps), 4K Cinema (4096 x 2304, 18 fps) and 18 MP (4912 x 3684, 11 fps). The BSI sensor shows a much better pixel performance, even under low-light conditions, as the image sensor with its light-sensitive structures is directly located behind the lens, allowing more light to reach the photodiode.

In addition to a board-level version with S-Mount lens holder and a
single-board version, a housed version is also available. The IDS Software Suite is included which is a SDK across multiple interfaces. This driver package enables time-saving integration for users, and easy switching from USB 2.0 to USB 3.0 technology.
