Built with embedded systems in mind, our GigE-V Framework for Linux contains lightweight libraries for camera control and image acquisition. This small footprint SDK is a simplified, user-level API for accessing features and streaming images from Teledyne DALSA GigE Vision cameras.
GigE-V Framework for Linux supports many distributions including Ubuntu, Debian, Suse/openSuse, and Red Hat (RHEL/Fedora/CentOS/Scientific) and more.
We recommend choosing long-term support (LTS) Linux distributions for machine vision applications. Long term support guarantees that critical system updates are available to ensure system stability.
Examples of long term support distributions include:
The framework supports both Desktop/Server systems and Embedded Systems. There are currently 4 CPU architectures supported:
Required for the Linux distribution
The platform supports Teledyne DALSA GigE Vision cameras compatible to the GigE Vision Standard v1.2
GigE-V framework for Linux Version 2.02 and later support TurboDrive v1.
The GigE Vision standard describes a set of protocols that define access methods and capabilities for devices and applications alike. The main protocols applicable for GigE Vision cameras are GVCP (GigE Vision Control Protocol) and GVSP (GigE Vision Streaming Protocol).
The GigE-V Framework API supports the standard register and memory area access parts of GVCP as well as its asynchronous message channel. The API also supports image acquisition from a device using GVSP.
The specific definitions of what is supported by a device are contained in the GigE Vision compliant XML file provided with the device. Starting with v2.0, the GigE-V Framework API library is able to read the XML file from the device, and associate a GenICam feature node tree with the device. For more information on how to use the XML file see the code examples provided in this document and the example programs supplied with the API
The GigE-V Framework API builds on the GenICam GenApi, which is included in the GigE-V Framework API installation. For more information and documentation of the GenICam GenApi visit the EMVA (European Machine Vision Association) website: www.emva.org/standards-technology/genicam/.
