Point Grey is expanding its Sony Pregius global shutter CMOS portfolio with the 2nd generation sensors. The GS3-U3-32S4 features the IMX252, a 3.2 MP 1/1.8" sensor, running at 121 FPS. The GS-U3-51S5 features the IMX250, a 5 MP 2/3" sensor running at 75 FPS, Sony's highest resolution Pregius global shutter CMOS to date. Both new models are scheduled to be released in Q3 2015.
Comparing frame rate, resolution and interface is easy. Comparing imaging performance such as QE, temporal dark noise and saturation capacity is not. What do these various measurements really mean and how are they being measured? This white paper addresses these questions and will explain how to compare and select cameras based on the imaging performance data based on the EMVA1288 standard.
Intel's Next Unit of Computing (NUC) enables customers to build a compact vision system by integrating a USB 3.0 camera with the Intel NUC. In this application note, Point Grey tests three different models of the Intel NUC, and demonstrates the ease of integration with Point Grey USB 3.0 cameras.
