High speed XIMEA xiB cameras with PCIe interface

There are quite a lot of image sensors with high speed capabilities. All of them can generate significant amounts of raw data and it's a complicated problem how to perform image processing and to save recorded data in realtime. One can choose a simple solution - just use fast SSD drive or RAID to record and save all raw data. In that approach one could quickly ran out of disk space and you will need much time to do image processing to get high quality images from raw data. To solve such a task we recommend using GPU-based image processing software which is capable of realtime processing for very high data rates.

XIMEA high speed xiB cameras are working with CMOSIS, Luxima and Gpixel image sensors (bayer or monochrome) providing an exceptional combination of resolution, speed and image quality. These cameras are connected to PC via PCI-Express interface to allow real time data transfer from camera to system memory. Below you can see some info about image sensors in XIMEA high speed xiB cameras:

Benchmarks for GPU ISP

The software can process RAW images from 65 MPix camera (Gpixel GMAX3265 image sensor, 9344×7000, 10-bit, 70 fps) on the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090 in real time, the pipeline includes RAW import, RAW-to-RGB transform, color correction, gamma, JPEG encoding, storage to SSD. FastVCR software can process such a data stream without frame drops, and max performance could reach 6 GPix/s or even more with that software.
