Basel (Sales Rauscher) adds two camera modules to its Embedded Vision offering, which are tuned to NXP's i.MX 8 processors. The combination of Basler's camera know-how and NXP's powerful processors enable ideal embedded vision solutions for industrial applications.
NXP's i.MX 8 processors are long-term available and meet all relevant requirements for temperature and ruggedness in industrial environments. The processors are suitable for simple to complex image processing applications.
To start, Basler launches two new "Dart" camera modules with BCON for MIPI interface and integrated Image Signal Processor (ISP) with 5 MP and 13 MP resolution as well as two new add-on camera kits. The kits provide the perfect starting point to easily add vision to the widely used NXP evaluation boards. The Add-on Camera Kits support the evaluation boards with the processors i.MX 8QuadMax, i.MX 8MQuad and i.MX 8M Mini. They are available with 5 MP and 13 MP Dart camera module. The associated driver makes commissioning as easy as possible and is optimized for the respective processor. In addition to the camera module, the kits also include cable, lens and a BCON for MIPI to Mini SAS adapter.
With the integration of the NXP i.MX 8 processors, Basler Embedded Vision customers are gaining access to another system-on-chip manufacturer that is particularly known in the industrial environment through its range of services. The flexible approach allows users to combine all Basler BCON for MIPI camera modules and all NXP i.MX 8 processors. This will give you the best setup for your application. It has never been so easy to find the optimal price / performance ratio for an embedded vision system.
