  • Partial scan function to increase frame rates
  • Real-time shading correction to compensate for local lighting or lens defects
  • Programmable look-up table (LUT) to emphasise different image level ranges or for threshold operations
  • Asynchronous external trigger for immediate start of exposure with no significant latency
  • 64MB internal memory for frame buffering and shading correction
  • 14 bit A/D converter
  • 2 programmable inputs, 4 programmable outputs for external trigger
  • RS232 interface
