XIMEA adds Linux capability to world’s smallest USB 3.0 line of industrial cameras.

 

MUNSTER, GERMANY August 20, 2012
XIMEA GmbH – developer of the CURRERA PC cameras, the world’s most powerful line of industrial “smart” cameras, and the xiQ series, the world’s smallest industrial USB 3.0 cameras – is pleased to announce Linux compatibility for its USB3 Vision camera product line.

XIMEA’s xiQ series industrial-grade cameras now come standard with support software for systems running Linux 3.3 kernels and above, including Linux Ubuntu distribution.

Contrary to reports from competing USB 3.0 industrial-grade camera manufacturers, the xiQ series is the smallest USB 3.0 industrial camera on the market, measuring just 26.4 x 26.4 x 19.1 mm compared to competing solutions that are considerably bigger. To achieve this small size, xiQ uses a single PCB board, compared to three separate PCB boards for other solutions. Coupled with the industry’s lowest power consumption and largest complimentary 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 series of xiQ cameras offer all the features customers have come to expect from a XIMEA industrial-grade camera, including USB 3.0 data interface that delivers up to 5 Gbps equal to 400 megapixels per second (Mpix/s), opto-isolated trigger input, illuminator control output, non-volatile memory for user settings and custom data, VGA to 4 Mpix resolution high-quality CMOS sensors, global shutters, frame rates up to 500 fps, improved quantum efficiency (QE) in the visible and NIR spectral ranges, and dynamic range up to 100 dB.

And like all of XIMEA’s industrial cameras, the xiQ series ships with APIs supporting more than 30 of the most common image processing software libraries, including Cognex, Matrox, National Instruments, MVTec, and many more.
