Lt-C/M2020B: A Compact Board Level Camera

The next generation of cameras from Teledyne Lumenera are the Lt Series Board Level Cameras equipped with ports situated on the side of the camera for easy access. Capturing clear images is easy with frame rates at a maximum of 55 fps using the Lt-C/M2020B’s 3.2-megapixel resolution.

Instead of connecting to the back of the camera, which would generally mean a longer amount of space required within a design, having connectors on the side allows for the back of these cameras to lie flush against the other components of the device. For instance, vision systems in unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) can be reduced in size and subsequent weight using Lt Series Board Level Cameras, thereby increasing flight time.
