These GigE Vision gigabit Ethernet cameras, which have been used in a wide range of
Windows-based computer vision applications, can thus now also be easily used on Linux
computers. The SDK includes sample code to help programmers more easily use the cameras in their Linux-based applications. “Since our Linux SDK runs on both Intel x86 and PowerPC platforms, customers now have greater ability to run our gigabit Ethernet cameras on low-cost, very small, SBC computers for embedded and OEM applications,” says Marty Furse, CEO at the vendor. A wide range of GigE Vision-compliant gigabit Ethernet cameras are available, from VGA at 200 frames per second up to 4-megapixel resolution running 15 frames per second.
