Linux compatibility for xiQ cameras
Ximea has introduced Linux compatibility for its USB 3.0 camera product line. Ximea’s xiQ series’ industrial-grade cameras now come with support software for systems running Linux 3.3 kernels and above, including Linux Ubuntu distribution.
The xiQ series measures just 26.4 x 26.4 x 19.1mm. To achieve this small size, xiQ uses a single PCB board. Coupled with low power consumption and a large offering of application programming interfaces (APIs) for commercial image processing programs, xiQ greatly simplifies OEM efforts to integrate board-level xiQ cameras into larger manufacturing, medical, security, and medical systems.
The xiQ cameras offer USB 3.0 data interface that delivers up to 5Gb/s equal to 400 Megapixels per second, opto-isolated trigger input, illuminator control output, non-volatile memory for user settings and custom data, VGA to 4 Megapixel resolution high-quality CMOS sensors, global shutters, frame rates up to 600fps, improved quantum efficiency (QE) in the visible and NIR spectral ranges, and dynamic range up to 100dB.
The camera series is supplied with APIs for the most common image processing software, including Cognex, Matrox Imaging, National Instruments, MVTec, and many more.
