What are the benefits of using a USB interface camera?

USB cameras offer integration with minimal effort and, in some cases, can offer UVC-compliance, which enables plug-and-play. The bandwidth of USB can achieve 5Gbps (depending on whether you are using USB 2.0 or USB 3.0) and can reach a range of up to 7 metres with passive cables. However, you can use an active optic cable to facilitate a longer cable distance of up to 100m, which may require an external power source (Active optic cables, in most cases, are at a higher price point and may not provide power to the end device).

What are the 37U series board-level cameras?

The 37 Series board-level cameras from The Imaging Source offer a wide selection of sensor options, making them highly suitable for various markets and applications. These cameras are compliant with USB3 Vision standards and offer sensor resolutions ranging from 0.4 MP to an impressive 20 MP. Developers will find the versatile trigger and I/O options particularly useful, along with the high dynamic range and exceptional colour reproduction that result in high-contrast images.

What are board-level cameras?

Board-level cameras, also referred to as board cameras or PCB cameras, are compact imaging devices specifically designed for integration into electronic systems and applications. Unlike traditional cameras that come with separate housings, board-level cameras are typically mounted directly onto a circuit board. These cameras are extensively utilised across diverse industries and applications where space is limited, and a compact form factor is indispensable.
