Compact USB3 Vision board-level camera for embedded vision - mvBlueFOX3-3M

mvBlueFOX3-3M - compact USB3 Vision industrial camera family
  • Compact board-level camera with USB 3 and high quality CMOS sensors (gray scale / color)
  • Easy integration into embbed systems with available USB 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 board-to-board connector 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.

Angled connectors

Via interface boards you can integrated connectors with different orientations.

Rigid-flex

A device internal flexible connection can be realized using a rigid-flex PCB.

Digital I/O

The digital I/Os are on the sam board-to-board connector and can be connected according to your demands flexibly.

USB 3.x

According to your environment, different USB connectors are possible: e. g. type B, Micro B, type C.

Vertical connectors

We can carry out connectors according to your demands.
