Baumer tested the hardware platforms of selected providers and support them with the current GAPI SDK version. To do so, the SDK provides several installation packages: standard packages for using provider-specific evaluation kits and basic packages allowing for individualized software design.

Baumer GAPI SDK for Linux® ARM®-based platforms supports the following evaluation kits by different standard packages:

  • NVIDIA® Jetson TK1
    for Linux® for Tegra® (Ubuntu®)

    NVIDIA® Jetson TX1
    for Linux® for Tegra® (Ubuntu®)

  • Raspberry Pi® 3
    for Raspbian

    for Ubuntu®

Where using other ARM®-based boards, provided basic packages enable individual software design. They include all libraries and software modules (no visualisation examples) required to integrate GigE and USB 3.0 cameras in machine vision software supporting the hard and softfloat processors of the ARM® ARM7™ family. 

SDK Baumer GAPI for Linux® ARM®-based hardware platforms includes:

  • Standard packages: Selected hardware evaluation kit support for different providers, for example NVIDIA® Jetson, Raspberry Pi® and ODROID
  • Basic packages: Hard and softfloat processor support for the ARM® ARM7™ family 
  • Versatile functionalities for process-reliable camera interfacing, for example
    - High-performance Baumer image processor for optimum color calculation out of Raw Bayer image data
    - Action command for quick, hardware-near triggering  
    - Supporting events and status information for automated process control
