IDS introduces UI-359xLE board-level camera

December 15, 2015 - IDS introduces UI-359xLE USB 3.0 single-board camera with an 18 MP color sensor from Aptina that is suited for narrow installation situations. The rolling shutter color sensor ensures detailed images providing VGA, 4K Cinema, or 18 MP.

Thanks to the latest BSI technology (Backside Illuminated), the 1/2" sensor is very light-sensitive. Thus, it is suited for high-resolution visualization applications e.g. microscopy, barcode reading, OCR or medical engineering.

As the board measures only 36 x 36 mm, the minimal dimensions make the USB 3.0 board-level camera interesting for small apparatus engineers. They also benefit from the numerous connection options, which include an 8-pin connector with 5 V power supply, trigger and flash, two GPIOs, and an I2C bus to control the peripherals.

The industrial camera with a backside-illuminated CMOS sensor delivers images in the following resolutions amongst others: Full HD (1920 x 1080, 37 fps), 4K Cinema (4096 x 2304, 18 fps) and 18 MP (4912 x 3684, 11 fps). The BSI sensor shows a much better pixel performance, even under low-light conditions, as the image sensor with its light-sensitive structures is directly located behind the lens, allowing more light to reach the photodiode.

In addition to a board-level version with S-Mount lens holder and a single-board version, a housed version is also available. The IDS Software Suite is included which is a SDK across multiple interfaces. This driver package enables time-saving integration for users, and easy switching from USB 2.0 to USB 3.0 technology.
