Point Grey launches CCD and USB 3.0 cameras

Point Grey has launched the Grasshopper3; the world’s first machine vision camera family to combine CCD technology with a USB 3.0 interface. The first Grasshopper3 camera model, the GS3-U3-28S4, has a maximum frame rate of 26FPS and features the Sony 2.8 megapixel 2.5 x 4.6cm (1 x 1.8in) ICX687 EXview HAD CCD II sensor. Compared to other CCD and CMOS devices, EXview is known for higher quantum efficiency, reduced smear, and increased near-IR (infrared) response. A full line-up of Sony CCD-based models is planned for the Grasshopper3 family, including 6 megapixel, and 9.1 megapixel versions. Similar to all the company’s USB 3.0 cameras, the Grasshopper3 is built on an FPGA and frame buffer-based architecture to provide optimal reliability, a rich set of features, and a full image processing pipeline, which includes color interpolation, look up table, gamma correction and pixel binning.

“The Grasshopper3 camera is designed to meet the growing demand for highly sensitive CCD global shutter technology, a fast and easy-to-use USB 3.0 interface, and a highly competitive price point,” explained Michael Gibbons, Point Grey’s director of sales and marketing. “Customers in machine vision and life science want to be able to access the exceptional imaging quality of CCD from a wide range of USB 3.0-enabled desktop, laptop, and embedded computers where other digital interfaces, such as Camera Link, are not an option. The new Grasshopper3 family addresses the needs of these customers, making it ideal for a wide range of applications.”
