Learn more about machine vision! In our knowledge base we are explaining key technical terms about image processing. We give you an overview to topics like 3D machine vision or the established standards like CameraLink, GigE Vision or GenICam.
CameraLink HS has a long history even though the standard itself is
young. With the ever increasing camera speeds "classic" CameraLink
standard is not able to scale easily beyond 850 MB/s, so another new
interface was needed to meet the needs of ever higher bandwidths at
the same or even lower cost.
CoaXPress (CXP) is the second beyond CameraLink standard that was
established a few years ago. In the simplest version, power, control and
data for the remote device are send via a single coaxial cable.
The GenICam standard (GENeric Interface for CAMeras) provides generic software
interfaces for all kinds of machine vision cameras whatever their hardware
interface. The underlying interface used, for example, GigE Vision or
CameraLink, is of no relevance. New technologies such as Camera Link HS, CoaXPress, or USB3 Vision, also rely on the GenICam standard.
