Mightex USB 2.0 cameras with frame buffers and global shutter 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, global shutter, external trigger-in, strobe-out, and a powerful camera engine that supports multiple cameras. Frame rate can be as high as 60 fps in full resolution and up to 600 fps using ROI mode. These cameras also have DirectShow driver and TWAIN driver. In addition, a user-friendly GUI based application software and an SDK are provided for custom software development. A USB command set protocol is also 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.]
