Board-level cameras are a desirable choice for integrating non-standard optics or for putting the image sensor as close to the target as feasible.
Board-level cameras, which lack a fixed lens mount, provide designers the opportunity to choose lenses other than the typical C, CS, or S-Mount lenses frequently used in the machine vision sector.
This design is especially perfect for fields like biotechnology and laser beam profiling, which frequently require no lens at all.
The ability to integrate the lens mount into another product part is another frequent use of a board-level camera; hence, the phrase “embedded vision camera.”
By streamlining manufacturing and assembly, directly molding a lens mound into a product’s housing can further cut expenses.
A mount attachment need also be purchased in order to test a board-level camera that does not come with a lens mount. As development platforms, case models that have the same sensors and functionalities as board-level models are useful.
The size of the utilized sensor should be taken into account when selecting the best lens mount choice for a board-level camera.
Generally speaking, S-mount lenses are made to be used with 1/3″ sensors or smaller and lower resolutions, usually less than 2MP.
CS-mount lenses, on the other hand, are made to operate with sensors that range in size from 1/3″ to 1/2″. Utilizing a C-mount lens is recommended if the sensor is 1/2″ or larger.
The Global Board-level Camera market accounted for $XX Billion in 2021 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2022 to 2030.
A more compact, lighter, and more affordable imaging option is provided by Teledyne Lumenera’s Lt Series board-level camera.
is furnished with the most recent Sony rolling shutter Starvi CMOS sensors and global shutter Pregius CMOS sensors.
They may be customized to fulfill the needs of a wide range of imaging systems thanks to their versatility in a resolution range of 1.7 to 12 megapixels.
With design considerations like connectors on the side of each camera so applications can take advantage of shorter cable lengths, and a flat-back design that minimizes the space required for vision systems, these Board Level Cameras are specifically created to meet the challenges of today’s embedded systems.
