Mightex USB 2.0 cameras with frame buffers are optimized for machine-vision applications, and they can also be used for a wide variety of other applications such as digital microscopy and medical imaging, where quality, ease of use, and cost-effectiveness are crucial. These cameras have built-in frame buffers, external trigger-in, strobe-out, and a powerful camera engine that supports multiple cameras. Monochrome cameras often exhibit 20% higher spatial resolution than their color counterparts because no pixel interpolation is necessary. Without a Bayer color filter on the sensor, monochrome cameras are also more sensitive than color sensors especially in near IR and UV regions. Frame rate can be as high as 12 fps in full resolution and up to 150 fps using ROI mode. In addition, a user-friendly GUI based application software and an SDK are provided for custom software development. A DirectShow driver and a TWAIN driver are included, and a USB command set protocol is provided for non-Windows based applications. A Linux Driver is also available upon request.

USB2.0 powered - no need for external power supply.
[Note: Board-level cameras are designed for OEM applications, when a system-level enclosure is usually provided. One should be properly grounded when handling a board-level camera, in order to avoid Electro-Static Discharge (ESD) related damages. ESD related damages (which are considered as mis-handling) are not covered by product warranty. For lab use, it is strongly recommended that one choose an enclosed camera, instead of a board-level one.]
