Color Camera


A color camera makes use of a Bayer pattern to produce a colored image. The RGB value of every pixel is being calculated by taking the value of a pixel, in combination with all the values of neighboring pixels. This results into less sharp images than those of a monochrome camera.
Due to the RGB filter on the pixels, every single pixel, considering white light, on average has 66% less photons than a monochrome camera. Which makes a color camera less light sensitive than a monochrome one. To compensate this, the following options are available:
-    Increase the amount of light
-    Increase the gain
-    Increase shutter speed / exposure time
-    Select a more light sensitive sensor
-    Select a more light sensitive lens


With I/O


The I/O connector from a USB camera is an 8 pin HR25 Hirose connector, which is a standard in the industrial machine vision market. This camera has an input that can be used as a hardware trigger for the device. The output of the camera can be used to trigger a light source, for example: LED. Furthermore, the camera has two GPIO’s (General Purpose Input/ Output) which can be programmed by using our SDK. The electrical diagrams to use the I/O connector are provided in the manual.


Information sensor manufacturer


(Please note that not all sensor features may be implemented)
General Description: The Aptina® MT9T001 is a QXGA-format 1/2-inch CMOS active-pixel digital image sensor with an active imaging pixel array of 2,048H x 1,536V. It incorporates sophisticated camera functions on-chip such as windowing, column and row skip mode, and snapshot mode. It is programmable through a simple two-wire serial interface. The 3-megapixel CMOS image sensor features Aptina’s breakthrough low-noise CMOS imaging technology that achieves CCD image quality (based on signal-to noise ratio and low-light sensitivity) while maintaining the inherent size, cost, and integration advantages of CMOS.
Features: High frame rate, Global reset release, Horizontal and vertical binning, Column and row skip modes, Superior low-light performance, Low dark current, Simple two-wire serial interface, Programmable controls: Gain, frame rate, frame size, exposure, Pin-for-pin compatible with Aptina’s 1.3-megapixel
MT9M001 and 2-megapixel MT9D001. Applications: Digital still cameras, Digital video cameras, Converged DSCs/camcorders.
