Such high grade sensor deserves an equally impressive interface and it finds this in the face of PCI Express Gen3 with bandwidth of 64 Gbits and real data throughput of 7000 MB/s – or more than any other conventional industrial camera can compete with.

The well-known high-speed camera line from XIMEA called xiB-64 already contains fast models ranging from 1 Mpix at 3600 Fps to 16 Mpix at 300 Fps. The name of the new addition is CB262 and it offers 26 Megapixels at a remarkable data rate of 150 frames per second when streaming at 10 Bits in RAW image format.

CB262 is utilizing GMAX0505, the latest CMOS sensor from Gpixel which has picture parameters close to sCMOS performance. Twice the 5K resolution of the world’s smallest Global shutter contains 5120 x 5120 pixels with size of 2.5 µm while still providing dynamic range of 70 dB in 12bit mode. This makes it suitable for the most demanding applications yet allows to use it with the compact C-mount lenses.

There are various grades of GMAX0505 available and XIMEA is capable to supply multiple camera versions to provide different levels of quality and prices. For overall heat dissipation reduction and even better noise results the cameras are equipped with fan cooler which can be removed and replaced with heatsink or water cooling system.

Such high grade sensor deserves an equally impressive interface and it finds this in the face of PCI Express Gen3 with bandwidth of 64 Gbits and real data throughput of 7000 MB/s – or more than any other conventional industrial camera can compete with. This comes without the need in bulky and expensive frame grabbers or special complicated software.

Additional benefits of PCIe interface are Direct memory access (DMA) with low CPU load and practically zero latency. The cable length can reach up to 300m through fiber optic and GPIO connectors ensure triggering and synchronization. Optional active EF-mount lens interface enables remote control of aperture, focus and image stabilization. All in a robust housing of 60 x 70 x 40 mm and 250 grams.

Applications examples include: Flat panel inspection, printed circuit board (PCB) examination, persistent stadium and border security, wide area surveillance, 360 panorama, cinematography, instant replays, Virtual and Augmented reality (VR, AR), Sports imaging and broadcasting, motion capture and aerial or city mapping.

The cameras are available with color and monochrome sensors:
