BCON – Basler’s new interface that connects to LVDS-based technology

Mar 22, 2016 | Machine Vision & Systems, News

Introducing BCON – Basler’s new interface that connects to LVDS-based technology. Thanks to this new interface, experts in embedded vision technology are ideally positioned to meet challenging requirements. In combination with their dart board level camera series, it enables the leanest possible image processing, due to flexible and cost-saving attributes as well as the most optimised front end and vision architecture for embedded vision applications.

LVDS (Low Voltage Differential Signaling) describes a standardised interface for high speed data transfer. However, it does not define image transmission in detail. This is where BCON comes in: It ensures reliable image data transfer with highest flexibility. The newest generation of FPGA (Field Programmable Gate Array) boards and SoCs (System on Chip) can be connected.

Basler dart cameras with BCON can be used with an embedded processing board. On top of that, BCON also enables developers of an embedded system to switch from one dart camera to another without any additional integration costs and efforts. The Basler dart board level camera brings together the latest camera technology with a cost-optimised design and Basler’s proven reliability and quality.
