USB 3.0 and 3D Depth Sensing
The depth sensing technology brings a whole new perception to computer vision industry, transforming the machine captured image from 2D to 3D. Countless of applications such as autonomous drones, robots, AR/VR, smart home devices amongst many other broad market products have been developed with the depth sensing cameras.
To be able to support high bandwidth required by the depth sensor and make it easy for developers to use, most of the depth sensing cameras have adopted the USB 3 interface.
Usually the USB 3 cables come with the depth sensing cameras are 1 to 2 meters. But the real world connection distances are often greater than this range. On the other hand, it’s not easy to find longer length USB 3 cables or extenders with reliable performance as USB 3 interface has been widely adopted in cheap-end consumer electronics over the years.
Newnex, as one of the key contributors of USB developer community, has been providing high quality USB 3 cables and repeater products to industrial market such as machine vision, medical imaging, professional AV, etc. for over 20 years. To better assist depth sensing camera users, Newnex has been actively working with camera manufacturers to our cables, active repeater cables, and optical repeaters with the most popular depth cameras on the market.
