congatec and Basler: technology partnership makes embedded vision easy
congatec and Basler have entered into a technology partnership. The aim of the cooperation is to offer customers optimally harmonized x86 and ARM components for embedded vision applications. Customers benefit from simplified handling and accelerated design-in of components as well as optimized service and support. In operation, the functionally validated smart vision components also impress with increased reliability and long-term availability.
First results of this new partnership were on display at the congatec booth at electronica, a smart embedded image recognition platform for face detection based on Basler’s dart camera module with USB 3.0 and conga-PA5 Pico-ITX boards with 5th generation Intel Atom, Celeron and Pentium processors. Further kits based on congatec boards and Basler modules with MIPI-CSI, GigE vision or other relevant interfaces will follow. The pylon camera software suite will also be integrated by congatec as standard software into appropriate kits.
