Nanoelectronics research center imec and XIMEA partnered thru integrating imec’s Hyperspectral Imaging (HSI) sensors with XIMEA’s xiQ USB3.0 camera line.

By applying narrow-band spectral filters at pixel-level using semiconductor thin-film processing, imec’s technology enables hyperspectral image sensor solutions with extreme compactness, low weight, high reliability and proven ability to be mass produced at comparably low cost and in volume. Ideal for Embedded vision systems.

XIMEA coupled imec’s hyperspectral sensors with its xiQ camera platform which features exceptional form factor that is unique in hyperspectral imaging: xiQ cameras offer 26.4 x 26.4 x 31 mm in dimension and mere 31 grams in weight. With such size, XIMEA can proudly claim the title of world’s smallest hyperspectral camera.

Besides the USB3, the high-speed option is provided by the PCIe interface version o the camera. All models are bus powered and spectrally calibrated.
