With the new Python25k image sensor from On Semi, there are now more great options for 25 Megapixel high-performance machine vision cameras. Now the question is whether to go with a Vita25k or a Python 25k based camera.
A few things to consider:
- Frame rate: The Python 25k offers a full frame rate of about 80 fps compared to 70 fps for the Vita 25k; but with a very small ROI the frame rate is faster with the Vita 25k
- Read noise: The read noise for the Python 25k is less than half that of the Vita 25k
- Power consumption: The power consumption of a Vita 25k based camera is lower than that with Python 25k
So it all comes down to which specifications are most important to the application. Here is a quick overview of the camera specifications including other high resolution camera options we provide such as the AMS-CMOSIS CMV12k and OnSemi Python 5k:
Notes to table: 1) Read noise, DR, and SNR can be different from image sensor specifications, these cameras are calibrated to linearity. 2) Two framespeeds are listed for the N-5A100, one for the full frame 5 megapixel, the second for the framespeed at 2kx2k, 4 megapixel resolution.
