See3CAM_CU40 - 4MP color & RAW RGB-IR USB 3.0 camera

The See3CAM_CU40 is a high-performance 4MP Color and RAW RGB-IR USB3 Camera with S-mount (M12 mount) lens holder. This RGB-IR Camera based on the OV4682 CMOS Image Sensor, a popular RGB-IR pixel format CMOS image sensor from OmniVision. The See3CAM_CU40 is a two-board solution containing the camera sensor board (e-CAM40_CUMI4682_MOD) and the USB 3.0 UVC controller board. The e-CAM40_CUMI4682_MOD module board contains the 1/3" OV4682 RGB-IR image sensor from OmniVision and supports the high-frame rates through its 4-lane MIPI CSI-2 interface. With USB 3.0 interface to the host PC, this See3CAM_CU40 can stream up to 672x380@300 fps, HD@90 fps (720p90), FHD@40 fps (1080p40) at 10-bit RAW data format. This can also stream the unprocessed 2688x1520 video at 14 fps when connected to the USB 3.0 host PC in the same 10-bit RAW data format.

This See3CAM_CU40 is a UVC-compliant USB 3.0 SuperSpeed Camera that is also backward compatible with USB2.0 host ports and does not require any special camera drivers to be installed in the host PC. The S-mount lens holder allows using any combination of lens and associated optical filters.
