The ISG LightWise Allegro USB3 Smart Camera line offers a full spectrum of solutions. From plug and play to custom, the Allegro is the Intelligent Solution that adapts to your need with fully maximized responsiveness & precise integration.
The Sony Starvis IMX178 camera brings a low noise rolling shutter with a frame rate up to 60 fps at a low cost to the imaging world. The camera utilizes the industry standard USB3 Vision interface. Automatic image correction and enhancement, arbitrary image scaling with anti-aliasing, independent configurable gamma correction, selectable output data formats, and lens shading correction are some of the features offered on the camera. Trigger, Strobe and Serial Interfaces are available.
Allegro cameras are USB3 Vision compliant and feature compact form factors, high resolution and high performance, along with unmatched programmability and flexibility for OEM vision system designers. We put more intelligence in our smart camera with large FPGAs, image buffers and other features to allow customization and enhanced performance.
In addition to providing plug-and-play compatibility with industry standard USB3 Vision applications, Allegro cameras also differentiate from the competition by integrating the ISG Image Pipeline in the on-board FPGA which can be modified to provide a custom camera solution. Since Allegro OEM cameras are easier to integrate, you will get your vision systems to market faster, with better performance and higher margins. Our customers integrate Allegro cameras into their products with confidence that the solution is scalable for future feature enhancements, providing a market advantage over their competition
