Lt-C/M1610B: Board Level Camera for Low Light

The Lt-C/M1610B USB3 board level camera from Teledyne Lumenera enables engineers to use Sony® Pregius Gen3 sensor technology in a slim and reliable form factor.

With high frame rates of up to 96 fps, a dynamic range of 73 dB, and a full well capacity of 100 Ke, the Lt-C/M1610B is the perfect device for low-light environments.

By utilizing the 9 µm pixel size, a greater amount of light can be captured in applications such as intelligent traffic systems that require a rapid imaging solution that can reliably capture a clear image in varying lighting conditions.

Highlights of the Teledyne Lumenera LT-C/M1610B Board Level Camera

  • Selectable 8 or 12-bit pixel data
  • 1.7-megapixel camera with fast frame rates of 96 fps at full resolution (1608 x 1104)
