Compact USB3 Vision board-level camera for embedded vision - mvBlueFOX3-3M
- Compact board-level camera with USB 3 and high quality Starvis CMOS sensors (gray scale / color)
- Easy integration into embbed systems with BFembedded Interface
- Same API as desktop Linux or Windows
- Camera features independant of the used embedded system
- Hardware preprocessing onboard (FPGA)
- 256 MByte integrated image memory
- Excellent cost-benefit ratio
The new board-level camera family mvBlueFOX3-3M combines flexibility, image quality, and performance with low cost. The cameras have a huge image memory and a powerful FPGA for onboard preprocessings as well as digital interfaces. With the BFembedded Interface there are many integration scenarios in different environments possible. In doing so you can connect the power supply, USB, and the digital I/Os using the connector. For this reason the board-level camera family is suitable for many applications in medicine, microscopy, traffic and industry.
Application examples for the flexible interface concept:
CPU / GPU modules
You can integrate the board-level camera to an adapted embedded system directly. Power supply, USB and I/O are available via the board-to-board connector.
Via interface boards you can integrated connectors with different orientations.
A device internal flexible connection can be realized using a rigid-flex PCB.
The digital I/Os are on the sam board-to-board connector and can be connected according to your demands flexibly.
According to your environment, different USB connectors are possible: e. g. type B, Micro B, type C.
We can carry out connectors according to your demands.
