Linux ARM Support¶
XIMEA Linux Software Package contains support for ARM CPU.
This allows to connect XIMEA Cameras to small embedded computers (mini PC) or boards equipped with ARM processors.
- Only xiQ and xiMU, xiC, xiX cameras are supported.
- XIMEA demosaic image processing code isn't fully optimized for ARM so performance on color cameras with XI_RGB output is lowered. To get higher framerate - application should select Raw image formats (RAW8, RAW16) which does not require image processing (especially demosaic).
- XIMEA CamTool is not available for ARM platform yet. The compilation on ARM is planned.
Tested platform: ODROID XU, ODROID XU3¶
Supported Cameras and Software¶
XIMEA Linux Software Package on ODROID supports whole xiQ line of cameras with software xiSample in RAW8 mode.
No other software or cameras was tested on ODROID support.
Based on this measurement it is estimated that the potential volume of received images from the camera models at maximum frame-rate (RAW8 images) is following:
|Camera Model||Maximum frame-rate|
Tested platform: NVIDIA Jetson TX1¶
Cameras tested: xiQ, xiMU in console application xiSample with raw image output.
Tested platform: NVIDIA Jetson TK1¶
Cameras tested: xiQ, xiMU Current status: Experimental support.
Example Application Building¶
To install necessary tools for building:
apt-get install libgstreamer0.10-dev libgstreamer-plugins-base0.10-dev libgtk2.0-dev g++
cd /opt/XIMEA/examples/xiSample make ./xiSample
cd /opt/XIMEA/examples/streamViewer sudo make sudo make install ./streamViewer
