 Press Releases

  • Nanoelectronics research center imec and XIMEA, a progressive creator of machine vision systems, announced their partnership in integrating imec’s Hyperspectral Imaging (HSI) sensors together with XIMEA’s xiQ USB3.0 camera product line. Exceptional interoperability between camera and sensor’s technology streamlined the success of this integration: http://www.ximea.com/en/technology-news/imec.

    “Combining imec's hyperspectral sensor with XIMEA’s impressively compact xiQ cameras is a new milestone for us. The high-speed USB3.0 interface includes power supply over USB that removes the need for expensive and bulky frame-grabbers and separate power supplies. It will enable our partners to design and mass-produce extremely compact hyperspectral imaging camera solutions” stated Andy Lambrechts, program manager for imaging & vision systems at imec.

    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 capabilities to be mass produced at low cost in volume. Three types of standard spectral image sensor designs are today available: 100 bands linescan design, 32 bands snapshot tiled design, and a new snapshot mosaic designs featuring 16 bands in a matrix of 4x4 per-pixel filters.

    XIMEA coupled imec’s hyperspectral sensors to its xiQ camera product line which features exceptional form factor with unmet specification today for the hyperspectral imaging space: xiQ cameras feature 26.4 x 26.4 x 21.6 mm total dimension and weight of mere 27 grams. With its xiQ series cameras, XIMEA can proudly claim the title of world’s smallest industrial USB3 Vision and hyperspectral imaging camera. XIMEA achieves this ultra-compact footprint by using a single planar rigid board construction as opposed to competing multi-board and multifold flexi-rigid PCB construction, making the xiQ easier to integrate into specialized equipment and OEM designs. XiQ cameras consume only 1.8 W, easing the power and thermal management design challenges of UAVs for example.

    “Hyperspectral imaging is not new in the world of high-end remote sensing instruments such as satellites and airborne systems. We are excited by this new partnership with XIMEA as it will bring this unique technology into the hands of the numerous drone and UAVs companies that want to fly compact multispectral / hyperspectral imaging cameras to serve the emerging precision farming industry,” added Jerome Baron, Business development manager of imec’s imaging activities.

    According to Max Larin, CEO of XIMEA, “This cooperation effectively presents the smallest, lightest, least power consuming and most cost effective solution in hyperspectral field today.”

  • XIMEA, a progressive innovator of machine vision products and Perception Park, Hyperspectral data processing specialist, today announced their collaboration towards interoperability between Perception Park’s Hyperspectral Imaging (HSI) software and XIMEA’s miniature Hyperspectral USB3.0 camera product line. Exceptional cooperation between companies transcended the integration of camera and software, streamlining the success of this integration.

    “Combination of Perception System, Perception Park’s unique hyperspectral data processing solution, with XIMEA’s impressively compact HSI cameras is a new milestone for accessibility of this technology. Simplicity of software and camera facilitates design and mass-implementation into user’s hyperspectral imaging applications” stated Manfred Pail, CFO at Perception Park on ximea.com: http://www.ximea.com/en/corporate-news/perception-park-hyperspectral

    Perception Park’s Chemical Color Imaging (CCI) technology represents a new processing technology, which combines essential advantages of the basic technologies of chemical imaging and color imaging (Color image processing) and makes chemical material properties accessible to the broad machine vision community through new approaches to data processing. Dramatic simplifications in handling, as well as the opportunity for real-time processing of highly complex camera data, are the keys to an extensive industrial use of this technology. The abstraction of highly complex spectral information through chemical features makes handling of the cameras on a deep level accessible to the user and interpretable, even without a profound knowledge of the basic technologies.

    XIMEA hyperspectral camera line is based on its popular xiQ family of USB3 Vision cameras which features exceptional form factor for today’s hyperspectral imaging: xiQ cameras measure 26.4 x 26.4 x 21.6 mm and weight mere 27 grams. This results in a proud claim of world’s smallest industrial USB 3.0 and hyperspectral imaging camera. XIMEA achieves this ultra-small footprint by using a single planar rigid board construction as opposed to competing multi-board and multifold flexi-rigid PCB construction, making xiQ easier to integrate into specialized equipment and OEM designs. These cameras also consume only 1.6 W, easing the power and thermal management design challenges of UAVs for example.

    Perception Park’s machine vision bridge, called Perception System, is applied typically by machine builders and solution providers for industrial purposes. Its main markets today are recycling, food, mining and the pharmaceutical industry. By adapting the hyperspectral camera with a machine vision bridge, Chemical Color Imaging turns the camera to an easy-to-understand and configurable “Chemical Color Camera”. Since the output data is in a standardized machine vision format, all available image processing solutions can be facilitated for tasks like decision generation, counting or monitoring based on molecular infor-mation. The Perception System standardizes cameras, suppresses disturbing influences and performs hy-perspectral pre-processing as well as feature extraction and operation. The output is information ex-tracted per object pixel (per spectra).

    According to Max Larin, CEO of XIMEA, “This cooperation between Hardware maker and Software provider is another step forward in the optimization of smallest, lightest, least power consuming and most cost effective solution in hyperspectral field today”.

  • A pioneer in pushing the limits of USB3 Vision cameras, XIMEA GmbH is continuously upgrading its offer of xiQ cameras. This time, models using VITA 1300 sensor were upgraded by utilizing the latest sensor from ON Semiconductor called PYTHON 1300. This change resulted in one of the fastest cameras available with USB 3.0, providing speeds of 210 fps at 1.3 Mpix and 800 fps at VGA resolution.

    While listening to the requests of customers, it was possible to identify the most important features of the camera – small size and speed. Where size is already addressed by the most compact form factor, speed can be increased further. Therefore, keeping in mind the great popularity of the VITA 1300 model, the decision was made to implement its faster successor - PYTHON 1300.

    Integration of the new camera option into existing customer applications should also proceed smoothly since the only major change in sensor is its increased speed that went up from 150 fps at full resolution to 210 fps (with Zero ROT). This grants the opportunity to achieve more than 800 fps at VGA and even over 1000 fps with 8bit and 640x400.

    Existing customers and those who wish to keep a stock of VITA 1300 models for future demand can contact XIMEA or your Sales representative to explore the availability and price benefits.

    More details on XIMEA’s website.

  • XIMEA announced the availability of a new model called CB120 at Intel’s IDF 2015 in San Francisco – a 4K camera using a PCI Express® (PCIe®) interface and delivering 12 Megapixel of crystal clear images at 130 frames per second over distances up to 300 meters with the help of a fiber-optic cable: http://www.ximea.com/en/products-news/pci-express-camera-cmv12000

    The newly available model’s data and control interface is fully compliant with PCI Express External Cabling Specification and provides bandwidth of 20 Gb/s, which with real data throughput of 1550 MB/s is exceptional even within the realm of other high speed interfaces.

    Fast data transfer comes handy with new camera based on the newest CMOSIS CMV12000 sensors. These proven, high quality CMOS sensors have Global Shutter and provide 12 bit images at unprecedented speed. Image quality and overall performance can be even further improved by optional cooling and the speed increased by server computers with bigger PCIe TLP packet size.

    The PCIe® interface that is implemented inside the camera eliminates any need for a framegrabber. Image data are seamlessly delivered and stored right inside the PC memory and are immediately available for processing and encoding by CPU and GPU removing any possible latency.

    For users who intend to synchronize multiple cameras: the models include opto-isolated inputs and outputs exposed from compact and robust camera body with industrial connector. To slim down the footprint both connectors are placed on the bottom resulting in size of mere 60 x 60 x 38 mm and weigh 175 grams. Additionally, as usual for XIMEA cameras the power consumption is conveniently low at 6 Watt.

    Raising the comfort of use new models are outfitted with an integrated lens interface that is compatible with Canon EF-mount lens and allows remote control of aperture, focus and image stabilization.

    Complimentary XIMEA API/SDK offers the choice of working under Windows, Linux, Mac OSX and or just C/C++.

    Applications include flat panel display and printed circuit board examination, persistent stadium or border security and wide area surveillance, 360 panorama, cinematography, aerial or city mapping.

  • Designed for OEMs wanting to add industrial imaging functionality to highly integrated machinery with tight space requirements, XIMEA GmbH’s MU9 compact industrial cameras offer high-resolution 5 Mpix CMOS sensors with global shutter, USB 2.0 data interface, and free application programming interfaces (APIs) for most commercial image processing systems in board-level and steel housing enclosures as small as 15 x 15 x 3 mm.

    The MU9 subminiature industrial camera line includes four models, all shipping in quantity today. The MU9PC_MBRD and MU9PM_MBRD cameras are board-level color and grayscale cameras, respectively, based on the APTINA MT9P031 2592 x 1944-pixel CMOS sensor with global shutter. The MU9PC_MH and MU9PM_MH cameras also use the APTINA sensor in both color and grayscale configurations but include a steel housing that increases the dimensions of the camera from the 15 x 15 x 3 mm board-level camera size to 16 x 16 x 13 mm with M12 lens mount. All of the MU9 cameras offer ~70 db of dynamic range with a signal-to-noise ratio of ~38 db, 5 V USB 2.0 data interface, and 2IN/2OUT general-purpose input/output for camera control and triggering. Color cameras use an RGB Bayer Matrix filter.

    Connecting the MU9 series cameras to industrial data processing systems, OEM equipment, and PCs is greatly simplified with the inclusion of APIs for the most common image processing software, including programs such as VisionPro, MIL, LabVIEW, MVTec’s Halcon, Tordivel’s Scorpion Vision Software, OpenCV, AForge.Net, and many more.
