Basler and Variscite Expand Collaboration for Embedded Vision Solutions with NXP® i.MX 8M Plus Technology

Basler and Variscite Expand Collaboration for Embedded Vision Solutions with NXP® i.MX 8M Plus Technology

Basler and Variscite continue to expand their cooperation which started in 2018. Both companies offer comprehensive solutions based on the NXP i.MX 8 applications processor series as well as various evaluation kits with enabled interfaces for the partner’s products.

Variscite is a leading strategic partner of NXP and the only SoM vendor to join NXP's Platinum Partner membership. This gives the company early access to NXP’s new product introductions before they hit the market and makes Variscite the only SoM manufacturer worldwide to launch the full range of i.MX 8 products at the same time as NXP launches its new processors. For its development kits destined for multimedia use Variscite employs Basler embedded cameras: The resulting embedded vision systems provide an easy start to test vision-based applications.

Coinciding with the announcement of NXP’s latest applications processor, the i.MX 8M Plus, Basler released the reference camera module that matches the SoC. Through close cooperation and intensive coordination of all hardware and software components, the company realized a powerful and cost-optimized vision system that utilizes the full potential of both the camera module and the i.MX 8M Plus. The resulting vision system provides the perfect solution for intelligent, vision-based machine learning applications. Basler also recently launched an industrial grade Embedded Vision Processing Board with vision optimized interfaces based on a Variscite SoM. It enables the connection of various camera types and, in addition to prototyping, is suitable for series production.

“The combination of Basler's embedded vision know-how and Variscite’s System on Module expertise results in ideal solutions for our customers. Our Embedded Vision Processing Kit demonstrates our ability to create powerful vision systems based on Variscite's SoMs which exploit the full potential of both the camera and NXP’s i.MX 8M Plus. For users, this results in reduced development effort and lower costs,” commented Gerrit Fischer, Director of Solutions Business Management at Basler.

“We are excited to cooperate with Basler and together provide a complete solution for the embedded market. The partnership with Basler allows Variscite to expand the eco-system range we provide for our customers and meet our customers’ increased demand for high-end vision solutions” said Ofer Austerlitz, VP Business Development and Sales at Variscite.

A joint webinar of Basler and Variscite will be held on June 30, 2021, at 04:00 PM CEST (10 AM ET). The webinar will focus on both companies’ solutions for NXP’s i.MX 8M Plus applications processor. Registration is open here.
