Basler dart with BCON for MIPI Interface

Basler, the world’s leading manufacturer of industrial digital cameras, adds models with a BCON for MIPI interface to their dart camera module series. With the BCON for MIPI interface Basler company integrates the complex MIPI technology into the world of Machine Vision standards (GenICam) and brings the proven Machine Vision features to embedded vision technology. With the Basler Driver Package and the pylon Camera Software Suite the users experience an unmatched ease of integration: pylon on BCON for MIPI provides the same level of convenience as for any non-embedded camera interface (e.g., USB3 Vision, GigE Vision).

Cost & Performance-efficient design for Qualcomm Based Target Systems

The dart camera module with BCON for MIPI interface pursues the path of efficiency in a notably consequent way: For the first time, a Basler camera is making use of the unmatched Image Signal Processors (ISP) of Qualcomm’s Snapdragon SoCs. This way the dart with BCON for MIPI interface enables the leanest embedded vision systems without compromising image quality and features.
