FEBRUARY 5, 2010--The Iyeron, a 12-Mpixel machine-vision camera, is shock-resistant and features a 1.9-in. CMOS monochrome progressive-scan sensor. It offers HXGA 4096 (H) x 3072 (V) pixel resolution at a full speed of 25 frames/s; this resolution is competitive with linescan camera offerings. The faster frame speed is achieved via the programmable window of interest (WOI) partial scanning mode. WOI can be programmed to display up to 28 square windows within one image and then allow the user to select certain windows to be read out. A Camera Link interface simplifies installation in new and existing systems.

PRESS RELEASE

Viewbits Introduces 12 Megapixel, 25 Frames per Second, Machine Vision Camera for Inspection, Robotics, and Medical or Scientific Imaging

Compact Iyeron CMOS Monochrome Camera with Camera Link Captures Full Frame 4096 x 3072 Resolution Images at Usable Rates That Compete Strongly with Linescan Cameras

San Diego, CA - Viewbits, the industrial cameras division of CMI, announced today that they are now shipping their new high speed, high resolution 12 megapixel CMOS machine vision camera. Iyeron is a compact shock-resistant camera with a 1.9-inch CMOS monochrome progressive scan sensor. The camera offers HXGA 4096 (H) x 3072 (V) pixel resolution at a full frame speed of 25 frames per second (fps). Until recently only linescan cameras offered such horizontal resolutions.

Iyeron features extremely high resolution and a high signal-to-noise ratio. It is designed for high speed video capture, factory automation, machine vision, robotics, military uses, and medical or scientific imaging.

The 12 megapixel camera’s faster frame speed is possible via the programmable Window of Interest (WOI) partial scanning mode. WOI can be programmed to display up to 28 square windows within one image and then allow the user to select only certain windows to be read out.

The Camera Link industry standard interface (10/8 bit) makes it easy to install the camera in new and existing systems.

"With 12 megapixels and a full-frame rate of 25 frames per second, the Iyeron delivers exceptionally sharp high resolution," noted Ray Asturias, Sales Engineer for Viewbits. "The Iyeron’s strong shock resistance makes it ideal for manufacturing, motion analysis, and military applications."

The Iyeron camera also features high sensitivity of 2000 lx (F5.6), large square pixels (6.0 µm x 6.0 µm), a random trigger shutter, an electronic global shutter, a wide dynamic range (multi-slope), and a compact size of less than three inches wide.
