XIMEA's Machine Vision Cameras Successfully Validated on Icron Interoperability Program

Icron Technologies Corporation, a leader in USB and video extension technology, and XIMEA GmbH, a leading international manufacturer of high-resolution cameras and imaging solutions, announced today joint product interoperability between XIMEA's xiQ USB 3.0 camera series and Icron's 100m fiber based USB extender, the USB 3.0 Spectra™ 3022.

Both the xiQ series and the Spectra 3022 are USB3 Vision compliant, providing XIMEA's customers the confidence of a robust and reliable solution when extended distances are required for their USB 3.0 applications.

With the ability to transfer images of up to 450 megapixels per second, XIMEA's xiQ USB 3.0 machine vision cameras were featured by EDN Magazine's "Hot 100 Products of 2012".

"Icron's new 100m extender equips customers with the ability to enjoy known benefits of USB3 SuperSpeed technology while having industrial cameras far away from the processing backend," stated Max Larin, CEO and head of product development at XIMEA. "We are happy to recognize that inevitable demand for bandwidth higher than that provided by GigE and more cost effective than Camera Link, can be satisfied by the combination of USB3 Vision cameras from XIMEA armored by Spectra 3022 extender from Icron."

"XIMEA was one of the first camera makers to develop a USB 3.0 machine vision camera and among the first to be validated in our ExtremeUSB® Vision Interoperability program," said Robert Haefling, Icron's President and CEO. "USB 3.0 SuperSpeed throughputs can now be extended up to 100 meters when using our plug and play extension solution, the Spectra 3022."
