e-con Systems See3Cam Camerae-con Systems Inc., a developer of embedded camera solutions, has announced the launch of See3CAM_130, a 4K Autofocus USB 3.0 Camera. See3CAM_130 is a small camera with a form factor of 80x50mm, and is based on the AR1335, a CMOS image sensor from On Semiconductor. The camera’s small form factor makes it suitable for machine vision and object tracking applications on board unmanned vehicle systems.

The See3CAM_130 streams Ultra HD (3840×2160) at 30fps and 4K Cinema (4096×2160) at 30fps over USB 3.0 in compressed MJPEG format. It also streams Full HD (1920×1080) at 60fps and HD (1280×720) at 60fps in both uncompressed (UYVY) and compressed MJPEG formats.

“Ever since we launched our first 13MP SuperSpeed USB Camera with fixed focus M12 lens holder in Feb 2015, our customers have been impressed with the image quality of that camera and were asking us for an autofocus version with a similar set of features. Our See3CAM_130 is the most advanced 13MP Autofocus SuperSpeed camera in the industry with superior low responsivity, HDR capability, Type-C Connector for flexibility and 3d syncing capabilities,” said Ashok Babu, President of e-con Systems Inc. “With See3CAM_130, e-con Systems once again proves its commitment to bringing the state-of-the-art camera solutions to our customers,” he added.

See3CAM_130 houses a high-performance Image Signal Processor chip (ISP) that performs all the Auto functions (Auto White Balance, Auto Exposure control) in addition to complete image signal processing pipelining. See3CAM_130 features interlaced High Dynamic range (iHDR) and low light sensitivity, enabling the camera to function in extreme lighting conditions. See3CAM_130 comes with 7 GPIO headers for standard and custom functions. External hardware trigger input is available for 3D sync and 13MP still image capture with zero shutter lag.

e-con Systems provides sample Windows and Linux applications that use the standard UVC protocol to access the camera controls.
