Point Grey launches new Grasshopper3 cameras

Point Grey has added two new 5MP (megapixel) global shutter CCD models to its Grasshopper3 family of USB3 Vision cameras. The new Grasshopper3 GS3-U3-50S5 camera models are based on color and monochrome versions of the popular Sony ICX625, a 16.7mm (0.66 inches) CCD sensor that is capable of streaming 2,448 x 2,048 resolution images at 15FPS. The combination of sensor format, resolution and frame rate has resulted in the widespread adoption of this device in a variety of applications, including high-speed tolling, 3D imaging, intelligent traffic systems and tunnel monitoring. The GS3-U3-50S5 offers existing Sony ICX625 sensor users with a transitional path to USB 3.0, without affecting optics or imaging performance.

Like all Point Grey’s USB 3.0 cameras, the Grasshopper3 uses a proprietary USB 3.0 link layer and frame buffer-based architecture for optimal performance and reliability. The Grasshopper3 uses an advanced image processing pipeline to enable color interpolation, look up table, gamma correction, pixel binning and USB3 Vision support. Michael Gibbons, Point Grey’s director of sales and marketing, explained, “The ICX625 device offers an appealing combination of value and performance for applications requiring high resolution global shutter performance. By enabling this device on our Grasshopper3 platform, users can combine USB 3.0 ease of use and high bandwidth, with a well-known image sensor that many of our customers have already qualified in their applications.”
