The Marlin series from Allied Vision is a series of very
compact cameras equipped with highly sensitive sensors that use the IEEE-1394a
The family consist of various camera models with different IT, progressive
scan CCD sensors from 1/3" to 1/1.8". Other variants feature a 2/3" CMOS
Sensor with global shutter. The cameras operate in 8/10 bit mode and excel in
almost any application because of their high frame rates and high image
quality which is due to the large selection of different sensors and
resolutions (VGA, SVGA, XGA, SXGA, UXGA).
The Marlin has an asynchronous trigger shutter as well as true partial scan
and integrates many useful "smart features" for imaging and machine vision.
One major benefit of this camera series is its flexibility. The separation of
the image sensor from the main board allows easy customisation and special OEM
versions on request.
