USB3 Vision™ Device Package

USB_VISION_logo.pngThe USB3 Vision Device Package is an IP package to transfer image data complying with the USB3 Vision standard. The IP transmits image data from the image sensor to the host computer in real time.  High-speed transmission is enabled through use of USB 3.0 for the communication interface.  In addition, any commercially available GenICam compatible applications can control the IP because of its GenICam compliance.

USB3 Vision is ideal for high-resolution, high-reliability machine vision cameras, medical imaging systems, and other applications that require maximized USB 3.0 performance.
