Camera module evaluation kit
Ahrensburg, Germany – With its dart BCON for MIPI Development Kit, the camera manufacturer Basler is offering a bundle that lets users evaluate the Basler dart BCON for MIPI camera modules and easily design them into an embedded vision application. The dart BCON for MIPI camera modules fully use the ISP in Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 on a Linux operating system (Linaro).
The development kit consists of a dart BCON for MIPI camera module with 5-megapixel resolution, a developer processing board based on a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 SoC, a 96boards.org-compatible mezzanine board, and the necessary accessories, such as lens and cables, which let users quickly and easily start and test their system structure. The installed board support package, the pylon Camera Software Suite and the driver package for Linux (Linaro) enable a direct set-up of the system without further adjustments. The Basler dart BCON for MIPI Development Kit offers users the same convenience as any plug and play camera interface, such as USB 3.0.
With the dart BCON for MIPI, the image pre-processing takes place in the image signal processor (ISP) of the host processor. This results in greater efficiency and enables lean embedded systems that don’t compromise on image quality. The unique concept behind Basler’s dart camera modules with BCON for MIPI interface is to make the reliable standards and convenient features of the Machine Vision world available for embedded applications with MIPI CSI-2 interfaces.
