USB is short for Universal Serial Bus. The USB interface adopts serial communication, which is a serial bus standard for connecting computers and devices. It is also a technical specification for input and output interfaces, and is widely used in personal computers and mobile devices. For example, our current mobile phones or computers are mainly USB interfaces.
USB interface is widely used in industrial equipment. It is one of the data interfaces with the most rapid development, the most extensive application, the most variety and the highest market share. At present, Micro USB B (USB2.0 version) and USB Type-C (USB2.0 and USB3.0 version) are mainly used in the infrared camera core of Global Sensor Technology.
So, how to distinguish USB2.0 and USB3.0?
- The data transmission rate of USB3.0 is ten times that of USB2.0
- USB 3.0 drive can be compatible with USB 2.0 port, otherwise it cannot
- USB 3.0 can provide more powerful bandwidth and power
The PLUG1212 thermal imaging module is a classic high resolution product of Global Sensor Technology, with high resolution, high frame rate and large amount of data. Therefore, USB3.0 interface must be used. However, USB2.0 can also be used in the wafer-level COIN612 infrared camera core. How to use the interface depends on the actual requirements of infrared thermal imaging products and applications.
