The Sony FCB-MA130 is extremely compact, measuring 16.5 x 10.3 x 18.0 mm and the HD micro camera can be easily integrated into space-restricted products.
Incorporating a 1/2.45-type Exmor™ CMOS sensor and Sony’s original image signal processor, the Sony FCB-MA130 HD CMOS camera enables users to capture Full HD resolution (1080p/30) movies and 13-megapixel still images. The Sony FCB-MA130 features several other useful functions, including embedded Image Stabilizer and Face Detection, thanks to Sony’s original image signal processor. Outstanding compactness coupled with high-quality images – with these capabilities, Sony anticipates this remarkable camera is set to open up brand new industrial applications.
Supports Still Images and Video
The Sony FCB-MA130 supports high-quality images. It achieves Full HD (1080p/30) quality moving pictures and 13-megapixel still images in a single unit.
Superb Picture Quality
Thanks to Sony’s renowned high-quality Exmor image sensor and Sony’s original image signal processor, the Sony FCB-MA130 delivers superb picture quality in both still images and moving pictures. In addition to these technologies, picture quality is optimized by precise adjustment previously developed by Sony during production of mobile phone camera modules.
The Sony FCB-MA130 camera offers a one-push auto focus (AF) function for ease of use.
Sony’s Original Image Processor
Many useful features are achieved thanks to Sony’s original image processor.
USB 3.0 Interface
The iShot® XBlock® USB 3.0 interface board has been specifically designed to work with Sony’s FCB-MA130 camera. Enabling all features on this exceptional camera to be utilized over USB 3.0.
The small size of the FCB-MA130 is a major advantage in many applications and the USB 3.0 interface has been designed to complement, allowing a very small total solution. It also takes its power from the USB host computer allowing single cable operation.
The iShot® XBlock® USB 3.0 interface board connects to the FCB-MA130 via an FCC cable. It connects to the CMOS parallel interface and the I2C control lines. The FPGA on board convert’s commands received via USB, to the appropriate I2C protocol commands on the camera.
A DMA channel on the FPGA is used to read the data and send it to the USB3.0 channel.
The hardware also adds the appropriate UVC header allowing easy interfacing on the host PC. Standard UVC controls are implemented and other functions can be handled via extended commands that implement register access.
All resolutions and frame rates supported by the camera including still images can be streamed via USB3.0. Including 1080p @ 30fps.
