Mightex USB 2.0 CCD cameras have high sensitivity and low noise, and they are optimized for a wide variety of applications, including machine-vision applications, 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. Frame rate can be as high as 15 fps in full resolution and up to 80 fps using ROI mode. 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.

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.]
