J microTechnology's NAT-30 USB Camera Adds Real-Time Video and High Resolution Digital Image Capture to Microprobe Station

PORTLAND, OR -- (MARKET WIRE) -- November 14, 2006 -- J microTechnology, Inc., specialists in electrical and mechanical test products for advanced semiconductor and packaged devices, introduces its NAT-30 universal serial bus (USB) camera and relay lens accessory that add real-time video and high-resolution digital image capture to laboratory microprobe stations. Based on the INFINITY1-1 digital camera, the system is a cost-effective, versatile solution for clinical, life science, materials science, and educational professionals.

The NAT-30 enhances viewing and documentation support of J microTechnology's LMS-2709 laboratory microprobe station and the JR-27xx manual probe stations. With 1280x1024 resolution and on-board processing, the INFINITY1-1 delivers outstanding image quality for a wide variety of scientific applications. Live video preview provides for real-time focus and video capture, and auto exposure and auto white balance efficiently capture the optimal image. An intuitive user application provides camera controls, while full integration to popular third-party imaging applications is available through TWAIN drivers. Using a TWAIN interface results in advanced intelligent network (AIN) rapid image capture, archiving, and documentation for high throughput applications, demanding research environments, and teaching facilities.

The system's standard relay lens furnishes a field of view consistent with an optical system eyepiece magnification of 25X. The independent focus on the lens makes the video image parafocal with the eyepiece image. The camera provides a progressive scan of 1.3 megapixels, with 30-bit color depth and RGB capture, all seen in a full color preview window on the PC.

The USB 2.0 digital interface ensures a simple plug and play installation. One standard cable minimizes camera wiring clutter. No additional hardware frame grabber is required. The software is compatible with Windows 2000 and Windows XP. Optional relay lens are available. Prices for the NAT-30 are about $3,500. Pricing can vary due to order configuration and shipping destination. Delivery is about 3 weeks aro.
