The MC1302/03 of Mikrotron is a high-speed megaPixel CMOS
camera with a resolution of 1280 (H) x 1024 (V) pixel and up to
100 fps. Contrary to high resolution CCD sensors, modern
CMOS sensors offer high resolution and extremely high data
rates. Because window size, position (ROI), and clock
frequency is randomly programmable, resolution and frame rate
of MC1302/03 can be easily adapted to any specific
requirements.
MC1302/03 can expose images synchronously or asynchronously.
In synchronous (free run) mode exposure time equals frame time
or, for shorter exposure times, the electronic shutter can be
activated with a minimal shutter time of 4µs. In asynchronous mode
an image is exposed by an external trigger.
Camera Link® compatible data output
Using 2x10-Bit data output the full dynamic range of the sensor is
available on the output. If less bandwidth and more speed is
desired, any 8-Bits out of the 10-Bits of the sensor can be selected
and output as 2x8-Bit within the “Base” Camera Link® output
MC1302/03 configuration is done via the Camera Link®
interface. Eight sets of camera configuration schemes can be format.

This results in extremely sharp, high-quality images, even if the
