Machine vision gets smaller & faster.
A new digital machine-vision camera is said to bring high-resolution image acquisition to high-speed, moving applications without sacrificing image quality or performance. Model CDC-200 from Cognex in Rosemont, I11., is roughly half the size and weight and twice as fast as typical CCD-type high-resolution cameras. It can deliver high-resolution SXGA images (1280 x 1024 pixels) at up to 26 frames/sec (fps), a standard VA image (640 x 480 pixels) at up to 100 fps, or a 320 x 240 image at up to 340 fps.
