Basler has expanded its portfolio with camera modules and a development kit with BCON for MIPI interface.
The concept of the dart BCON for MIPI Development Kit with the processor from Qualcomm won the Embedded Award in the Embedded Vision category at this year’s Embedded World Conference in Nuremberg, Germany.
Basler told MVPro Magazine that the BCON for MIPI interface combines MIPI technology with proven standards and the convenient features of the machine vision world. This approach utilises the powerful Qualcomm Spectra ISP, significantly reducing the overall processor load of the system and freeing up more computing power for the actual application.
“Our goal is to create the optimal embedded vision solution for our customers. The innovative product concept of the dart BCON for MIPI Development Kit utilizes the powerful Qualcomm Technologies processor to enable our customers to achieve lean systems without compromising image quality,” explained Gerrit Fischer, Head of Product Market Management at Basler. “This makes the dart BCON for MIPI the ideal camera for demanding embedded vision systems and IoT applications.
“Vision-based embedded applications are a key area in the Internet of Things,” said Jeffery Torrance, vice president, business development, Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. “With ever-increasing demands on space, cost and computing power, these applications demand the best in innovative technologies. Qualcomm Technologies is proud to work with Basler AG to enable their award-winning embedded products.”
