Third party

XIMEA offers a range of PCIe accessories.
If you want to acquire specific host adapters by yourself, below are some suggestions.

Note: XIMEA does not guarantee functionality - listed products are for information only.


IOI Host Adapter:
Cost efficient and functional adapters:
OSS Host Adapters:
Samtec Host Adapter:
If you want to use Samtec Fiber Optic cable (up to 300m long) it is highly recommended to use it in conjunction with Samtec host adapter card.
We have tried other combinations and they don’t work due to the specific spread spectrum feature and sideband signals.
