Recognising the high level of interest in ‘SuperSpeed’ USB 3.0 camera technology for machine vision, Stemmer Imaging is hosting the ‘IDS Innovation Day’, in conjunction with IDS, manufacturers of the uEye CP range of USB 3.0 cameras with CMOS sensors. This lively and informative event is free to attend and will be held at the Ramada Hotel, Farnham, UK on 3 July 2012. It will include presentations from several different companies, live demonstrations and real-world case studies. Places on the event are limited and must be booked in advance by contacting Sally Denny at .

Experts from IDS Imaging Development Systems GmbH, Stemmer Imaging UK, e2v technologies plc and CMOSIS nv will be available throughout the day to answer individual questions, both about applications of the USB 3.0 interface and the latest trends in CMOS sensor technologies.

The new USB 3.0 interface offers high-speed data transfer rates of 400MByte/s, making the cameras suited to a range of data-rich applications. This is a tenfold increase in data transfer rate compared with USB 2.0, and around four times the speed of the GigE interface. Data transmission distances of more than 10m can be achieved using standard industrial cables. USB 3.0 is also downward compatible and so can be used in existing USB 2.0 systems.
