First USB 3.1 Gen 1 machine vision cameras with Type-C connector

IDS Imaging Development Systems is introducing the uEye LE series camera series, its first USB 3.1 Gen 1 camera series with a future-oriented Type-C connector. These small, cost-effective cameras come in housed or single-board version with a choice of lens holders. The latest generation of high-performance CMOS sensors will be integrated, starting with Sony's 2MP IMX290 sensor and 6MP IMX178 sensor from its STARVIS series. Other CMOS sensors from ON Semiconductor, Sony and e2v will follow. Engineering samples will be available in September 2016, with serial production due by the end of 2016.

With the latest generation of the USB 3 uEye LE series, IDS is focussing on the essentials of an industrial camera: small, cost-effective, powerful sensors. Thanks to the compact dimensions (36x36mm) even the new USB 3.0 camera generation can be integrated into a system very easily.

Choice of specifications

Like its successful USB 2.0 counterpart, it will be available in different variants: single-board version without lens holder; single-board version with S-Mount lens holder or CS-/C-Mount lens holder; and as a housed version with CS-/C-Mount. The Type-C connector is the first step forward to USB 3.1, and the IDS portfolio provides appropriate cables with both-way pluggable USB connectors. The single-board version also comes with a 10-pin socket providing two general-purpose I/O, trigger and flash, as well as I2C bus for controlling external devices. The single-board USB 3 uEye LE cameras are said to be particularly suitable as the basis for OEM projects.

The first new model in this series of modern, high-performance CMOS cameras is the UI-3860LE with Sony IMX290: the rolling shutter sensor provides a resolution of 2MP (1936x1096px, full HD: about 120 fps) and aims at customers with high demands on image quality and speed. The light-sensitive BSI sensor from Sony's STARVIS series is suitable for cost-driven applications in mechanical engineering, machine vision, metrology, medical engineering or microscopy.

IDS will also be implementing Sony's IMX178 high-resolution CMOS sensor: the rolling shutter sensor provides a resolution of 6MP (3088x2076px) at frame rates of up to 60fps. The model UI-3880LE is particularly well suited for visualisation tasks demanding high image details, such as intelligent transport systems (ITS). The BSI sensor from Sony's STARVIS series will be one of the most light-sensitive sensors in the IDS portfolio. Due to its 1/1.8inch sensor format, a wide range of lenses will be available for the new USB industrial cameras.

The related IDS Software Suite is identical for all IDS cameras and interfaces, whether they utilise a USB 2.0, USB 3.0 or GigE interface. Users can retain their individual settings without having to change the program code, even if they change to another camera model.
