Basler Embedded Vision Solutions for NXP’s i.MX 8 Applications Processor Series

Our range of embedded vision solutions includes products that are ideally suited for NXP® Semiconductors i.MX 8 applications processor series. The dart camera modules and add-on camera kits offer the perfect starting point to extend the i.MX 8 processors from NXP with image processing. Recently Basler worked jointly with NXP to realize a powerful and cost-optimized vision system based on NXP’s new SoC i.MX 8M Plus : It features a dual camera Image Signal Processor (ISP) providing real-time processing for crystal clear images and a neural network accelerator delivering up to 2.3 TOPs for extensive machine learning capabilities. In combination with the new Basler camera modules, the resulting vision system provides the perfect solution for intelligent, vision-based machine learning applications.

Motion Analysis with the New i.MX 8M Plus

Machine Learning on the Edge: The latest deep learning and in-device processing techniques allow for real-time human pose estimation. The Machine Learning algorithm tracks the human pose based on live camera data. Hence the system is optimized for image processing to allow high accuracy and fast inference time.

A Strong Partnership

Thanks to the combination of Basler's many years of vision and solution expertise as well as the i.MX 8 applications processor series, you get optimally matched vision systems. Whether you are developing a simple application or a complex image processing application, NXP's broad product portfolio offers the ideal processor for your embedded vision solution. The flexible combination with Basler's dart BCON for MIPI camera modules ensures particularly easy integration.

  • Simple implementation
  • Excellent image quality
  • Low integration effort
  • Long-term availability
  • NXP processors meet high requirements, e.g. for temperature and robustness
  • Also suitable for complex industrial applications
  • Optimal price/performance ratio

dart BCON for MIPI Camera Modules

dart BCON for MIPI Camera Modules

The Basler dart BCON for MIPI camera modules have an integrated ISP and are available with 5 MP and 13 MP resolution. Basler's proprietary BCON for MIPI interface is tailor-made and provides easy integration based on the MIPI CSI-2 video interface standard. Our BCON for MIPI camera modules are just as easy to commission as any plug-and-play camera interface, such as USB 3.0.

Add-on Camera Kits

Add-on Camera Kits

Our add-on camera kits consist of a dart BCON for MIPI camera module (5, 8 or 13 MP), a BCON for MIPI to Mini SAS adapter, a lens and a cable. Thanks to the appropriate driver, implementation has never been easier. The kits support the NXP Evaluation Boards with the processors i.MX 8QuadMax, i.MX 8MQuad, i.MX 8M Mini and now also i.MX 8M Plus.
