QC Pro 3000 Basics
Home Up Next


Just to the right I copied what Logitech is writing for the Pro 3000 Quick Cam (named l3k below)

If you take a closer look - means open the bottle - it is revealing the following main components:

Philips SAA8116HL Digital camera signal processor
Sony CXD1267AN CCD Vertical clock driver 
(you may notice that the CX is missing on the chip but I found it on the Sony site as CXD1267AN)
Sony ICX098AK Color 640x480 CDD chip 
4.5mm diag (type 1/4); pixel size 5.6Ám x5.6Ám
A bright green SMD LED 
(which causes some problems if not shielded for long exposure)
Wide-angle Lens
Switch and Microphone assembly
The housing (silver ball)
The USB connector and cable

You may find the spec-sheets of the chips on the manufacturers web site (Sony and Philips semiconductor branches).

Following is a picture of the opened cam.

Here is a hint to open the housing.

A closer look reveals the chips used in this cam.
