VIMBA SDK

Vimba is a comprehensive software suite:

  • Acquire images and explore camera features without programming.
  • Program your vision applications with C, C++, .NET or Python APIs.
  • Connect to third-party libraries and frameworks.

Platform independent

Vimba 6.0 was tested with:

  • Vimba for Windows 64-bit:
    • Windows 10 (GigE, USB, 1394, and Camera Link cameras)
    • Windows 11 (GigE, USB, and 1394 cameras)
  • Vimba for Windows 32-bit:
    • Windows 10 (GigE, USB, 1394, and Camera Link cameras)
  • Vimba for Linux: Ubuntu 20.04 LTS (64-bit), Debian 11.2 (64-bit)
  • Vimba for ARM64: NVIDIA Xavier NX with
    • JetPack 4.6 (L4T 32.6.1) – GigE and USB cameras

To operate Alvium CSI-2 cameras on your vision system, Allied Vision provides different access modes:

  • GenICam for CSI-2 Access controls the camera by GenICam features, using the Alvium CSI-2 driver and CSI-2 transport layer (TL) directly.
  • Direct Register Access (DRA) to control the cameras via registers for advanced users.
  • Video4Linux2 Access allows to control the cameras via established V4L2 API and applications like GStreamer and OpenCV.

Supported embedded boards:

  • Adapter Board for Boundary Devices Nitrogen6_MAX
  • Adapter Board for Wandboard i.MX6 Series
  • Adapter Board for Toradex Ixora Carrier Board
  • Adapter Board for NVIDIA Jetson Nano and Jetson Xavier NX Developer Kit
  • Adapter Board for NVIDIA Jetson TX2 and AGX Xavier

From quick prototyping to sophisticated development

Vimba provides four APIs with extensive documentation and code examples:

The Python API is perfect for a quick and easy start or for prototyping.
The C API is Vimba’s basic and easy-to-use API. It can also be used as API for C++ applications.
The C++ API has an elaborate class architecture. It is designed as a highly efficient and sophisticated API for advanced object-oriented programming including the STL (standard template library), shared pointers, and interface classes. If you prefer an API with less design patterns, we recommend the Vimba C API.
The .NET API supports all .NET languages, for example, C#, C++/CLI, or Visual Basic .NET. Its general concept is similar to the C++ API.

All APIs cover the following functions:

  • Listing currently connected cameras
  • Controlling camera features
  • Receiving images from the camera
  • Notifications about camera connections or disconnections

The Image Transform Library converts camera images into other pixel formats and creates color images from raw images (debayering). While this is separated for the C and C++ API, the .NET API includes these functions. Therefore, a .NET application does not have to access the Image Transform Library. The APIs use GenICam transport layer (GenTL) libraries to communicate with the cameras.

Third-party libraries compatibility

Vimba’s transport layers automatically connect  to third-party software, for example, LabVIEW, MATLAB, OpenCV, Halcon, CVB, and many more.
