IDS Imaging Development Systems (Woburn, MA) announced that it is shipping its new uEye™ XS, the world's smallest machine vision camera with autofocus. Measuring a compact 23 x 26.5 x 21.5 mm (.9" x 1.04" x .84"), the uEye™ XS is simple to integrate into virtually any imaging system. Featuring the 5 megapixel Aptina™ CMOS sensor with a pixel size of 1.4 µm, the uEye™ XS camera delivers detailed, true color images in a choice of seven fixed image formats ranging from 5 MP (2592 x 1944) to basic VGA (640 x 480). Frame rate is freely adjustable for long or short exposures, and at full 5MB resolution the XS will capture 15 fps. Binning can be used to achieve frame rates as high as 30 fps. It connects via standard USB 2.0 and a mini-B socket, with power supply provided by the bus cable.
