Sony Europe Imaging Sensing Solutions has launched its industrial vision global shutter complementary metal oxide semiconductor (GS CMOS) module using the USB3.0 transmission standard. Called XCU-CG160, the solution has a 1.6MP resolution and is said to transmit data at 100 frames per second. XCU-CG160 intends to create a migration path from charge-coupled device to GS CMOS without system upgrades or a changed architecture. The device also includes key image-processing features such as gain and defect pixel correction as well as shading correction.
