Paper Abstract

A 600 Frame/s camera based on 1.3 Megapixel CMOS sensor (PBMV13) with wide digital data output bus (10 parallel outputs of 10 bit worlds) was developed using high capacity SCRAM memory. This architecture allows to achieve 10 seconds of continuous recording of digital data from the sensor at 600 frames per second to the memory box with up to 12 1Gbytes SDRAM modules. Acquired data is transmitted through the fibre optic channel connected to the camera via FPDP interface to a PC type computer at the speed of 100 Mbyte per second and fibre cable length up to 10 km. All camera settings such as shutter time, frame rate, image size, present for changing integration time and frame rate, can be controlled by software. Camera specifications: shutter time - from 3.3 us to full frame at 1.6 us steps at 600 fps and then 1 frame steps down to 16 ms, frame rate - from 60 fps to 600 fps, image size 1280x1024, 1280x512, 1290x256, or 1280x128, changing on a fly - presetting two step table, memory capacity - depends on frame size (6000 frames with 1280x1024 or 48000 frames with 1280x128 resolution). Program can work with monochrome or color versions of the MV13 sensor.
