FTDI Chip recently introduced a new series of USB 3.0 UVC class bridge ICs. The FT602 devices support streaming of video from HD camera equipment. Imaging systems that once could only deliver low-resolution material can now have improved video quality while still running at 60-fps frame rates.
The FT602 devices’ characteristics, benefits, and specs:
- Improved performance while viewing captured imaging data via standard UVC-enabled hardware and common media player platforms
- Plug-and-play implementationl; custom drivers aren’t required
- Complements FTDI’s FT600 and FT601 capable of providing both USB 3.0 SuperSpeed (5 Gbps) and USB 2.0 High Speed (480 Mbps) interfacing
- Key applications: surveillance/security, machine vision, home/building automation, metrology, and real-time microscopy
