Ximea xiB PCI Express cameras with high speed and resolution

Scitech presents the Ximea xiB, the smallest and
fastest cameras featuring a CMV50000 sensor on the market.

Available in a choice of 7 models, these cameras offer
high resolution CMOSIS sensors from 12 to 48 MP. The cameras stream images to
the host computer via 4 lanes on a PCI Express Gen2 bus, boasting an impressive
20 Gbit/s of bandwidth. Together with minimal latencies and CPU load, the PCIe
technolo­gy is ideal for high resolution.

At 17 times faster than USB 3.0, 7 times than 10GigE
and even faster than Camera Link HS or CoaXPress, these cameras are ideal for
industrial, automotive or robotic applications.

Measuring only 60 × 60 × 38 mm³, the compact cameras weigh
175g and have power consumption as low as 9 Watt. They can be fully synchronised
with their multiple GPIOs and offer an active Canon EF-mount. In situations
where multiple camera heads need to be placed in close proximity, system
integrators can combine and aggregate the data streams from cameras with
various resolutions via additional accessories.

Key features of Ximea xiB cameras include: PCIe Gen2
x4 interface for direct access to the computer memory with up to 20 Gbit/s; no
frame grabber required; high resolution CMOSIS sensors from 12 to 48 MP; active
Canon EF lens mount for control of aperture and focus; 100+ m cable lengths
possible; direct data transfer to GPU possible on Linux; high
speed interface with bandwidth of 16 GBit up to 64
Gbit /sec; CMOSIS sensors CMV12000, CMV20000, CMV50000 offering high
image resolution and high throughput with 12, 20 and 48
Megapixels; speed of 133 – 333, 33 and 30 FPS respectively;
robust PCI Express and power/GPIO connectors; integrated Canon EF-mount control
with dynamic aperture and focus control; support for Windows, MacOS, Linux, ARM;
suitable for OEM customisation and embedded vision systems; and ability to
perform across distances up to 300m over fibre-optic cable.


The Ximea xiB cameras find application in flat panel
display (FPD) inspection, semiconductor wafer scanning, printed circuit board
(PCB) examination, industrial automation and machine vision, production line
monitoring, robotic welding, gauging, VR and AR – virtual and augmented reality,
solar panel inspection, 3D mapping, high definition motion capture/
tracking, metrology, defect detection, print and film scanning, GIS
(Geographical Information Systems), automotive and robotics, persistent stadium
and border high-end security, sports imaging and broadcast, electronics
measurement and assemblies, outdoor imaging – wide area motion imaging and
surveillance, and aerial or city mapping (UAV/UAS/drones).
