              Why and When Should I Switch to a New Camera Interface Like USB 3.0 (USB3 Vision)?

              USB 3.0

              The integration involved in switching from one camera interface to another requires some investment of time. You’ll get maximum payoff for this investment, if:
              • The hardware for the camera interface in use is gradually becoming more expensive and harder to obtain, as is currently the case with FireWire.
              • The available bandwidth can no longer meet the requirements of modern vision systems (higher frame rates, higher resolution, or another image format). This frequently applies to FireWire (IEEE1394b: max. 64MB/s) and USB 2.0 (max. 40MB/s).
              • Savings due to reduced manufacturing costs can often justify this one-time integration investment. This is a consideration when changing over from FireWire or from frame grabber-based interfaces such as “analog” or “Camera Link base”.
