UBS3 logoWhat is USB 3.0?
USB3 interface is the third major review of the USB standard and brings a new level of performance with a new data transfer called "Super Speed" giving the new protocol a potential top speed of 5 Gigabits-per-second.

The demand for faster data transmission is increasing which has resulted in the need for further development of the USB standard as features that have long been available in powerful GigE cameras were not feasible in the previous USB world with its bandwidth of about 40 MB/sec. However, deploying a GigE camera is not always possible and in embedded applications where high resolution is required, a fast USB3 camera connection can be especially useful.

SuperSpeed USB (USB3) is not only interesting because of its higher transmission speed but also because this revised and extended USB protocol allows for more efficient, resource-friendly data transmission. By omitting polling and by supporting the future use of DMA (Direct Memory Access) USB controllers, it will be possible to retrieve image data from USB 3.0 cameras with very little CPU load.

What are the benefits of USB 3.0?
** Data rate is increased by a factor of ten to reach 5 Gigabits-per-second
** Power management of connected USB 3.0 cameras is optimised
** Reduces the load on the CPU as the polling procedure is omitted (as in the previous USB protocol) so that USB3 camercan send can send data on their own

While copper lines are still used, USB3 technology employs separate wire pairs to transmit sending and receiving directions in a full-duplex-capable connection so there is no need to wait before sending information. In contrast to the construction of the USB2 cable, the wire pairs of USB3 have an additional shield in order to increase the interference resistance of the high-frequency signals.

Applications using USB 3 cameras
As well as being appropriate for use in industrial image processing, USB 3 cameras are ideally suited for laboratory or medical systems, where the strict requirements of industrial environments with respect to cable lengths (USB3 cables lengths measure 3 metres against USB 2's 5-metre lengths) do not apply. USB3 cameras are also suitable for embedded applications where a high camera resolution is required but where a GigE camera is not appropriate. Due to the integrated power supply, USB 3 cameras are perfect for applications in fields like microscopy, embedded systems and medical technology.
