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