Hi all,

looks like a new USB2 webcam from Philips called SPC-900NC will hit the market very soon 8) A datasheet can be found here: http://www.p4c.philips.com/files/s/spc900nc_00/spc900nc_00_pss_eng.pdf
The sensor is a "VGA CCD < 1 lux" so we can assume it's the good old Sony ICX 098BQ. Framerate is noted as 75fps for VGA resolution.
It might not be a Lumenera but a nice device to capture color information besides a monochrome Lumenera.
Let's see when and where I can get one wink

Cheers & Clear skies,
Oliver

First offers in the webshops demand about 80EUR in europe but the cams don't seem to be available yet. Looks like Philips replaces the complete ToUcam range with USB2 devices:

spc900nc - VGA CCD, USB2
spc700nc - VGA CMOS, USB2
spc600nc - VGA CMOS, USB2
spc300nc - QVGA CMOS, USB2
spc200nc - CIF CMOS, USB2

As always only the CCD device should be interesting for us.

Cheers & clear skies,
Oliver
