USB3.0 Vision and CMOS sensors
Alongside GigE Vision, Mako will also be available with the USB3 Vision interface. This new standard for industrial imaging was defined under the auspices of the AIA and will be unveiled for the first time at VISION 2012. As a founding member of the Standardization Committee for USB3 Vision, Allied Vision Technologies is convinced of the advantages of this new interface technology; with Mako, AVT will introduce the first serial-production cameras with USB3 Vision. Among the USB3 Vision models, the VGA, 2 and 4 megapixel CMOS sensors from CMOSIS (CMV2000 and CMV4000) and their corresponding NIR-sensitive variations are highly anticipated.

Whether with GigE Vision or USB3 Vision – the Mako camera family distinguishes itself with its outstanding cost/performance ratio and sets new standards in entry-level industrial imaging. The first Mako models with GigE Vision Interface will be available in the first quarter of 2013; the Mako palette will be successively expanded thereafter.

Mako GigE and USB: Low-Cost CMOS Industrial Cameras
Allied Vision’s Mako camera family offers an excellent price to performance ratio using the latest CMOS sensors.  Five new models will be presented in San Francisco:

· Mako G-234: using Sony’s new IMX249 CMOS sensor, the Mako G-234 offers a resolution of 2.4 Megapixels at 40 frames per second using a GigE interface

· Mako U-029: equipped with OnSemi’s PYTHON 300 CMOS sensor and USB3 Vision interface, the Mako U-029 provides VGA resolution (0.3 Megapixels) at 550 frames per second

· Mako U-051: a resolution of 0.5 Megapixels at 391 frames per second is delivered by OnSemi’s PYTHON 500 CMOS sensor through a USB3 Vision interface

· Mako U-130: fitted with OnSemi’s PYTHON 1300 CMOS sensor, the Mako U-130 USB3 Vision camera delivers a resolution and frame rate of 1.3 Megapixels and 168 frames per second respectively.

· Mako U-503: providing a resolution of 5 Megapixels at 14 frames per second, the Mako U-503 utilizes Aptina’s MT9P031 CMOS sensor using a USB3 Vision interface

All Mako cameras can be operated within multiple imaging processing systems through Allied Vision’s software development kit (SDK), Vimba.  Thanks to its small form factor, the Mako is easy to integrate into systems for various applications such
