Sending commands to MityCAM-C8000 by USB

Added by Alessandro Maragno over 2 years ago

Hello,
I'm evaluating a CMOSIS CMV8000 image sensor, into the context of the project I'm working on. I received your MityCAM-C8000 after purchasing the evaluation kit. I made the setup and started taking familiarity to the kit by MityViewer (1.4.4 v), but now I need to write some script to automate the test procedures. After taking a look to the documentation on this wiki, I realize that I can send commands to the camera only by the CamlinkPanel application (1.2.0 v) by CameraLink Interface. When I received the kit, it didn't came with a CameraLink cable, and I don't know if it may be a standard interface only by the pins described into the "Interface Description for MityCAM - C8000 Camera link Interface" document. After a look around, I haven't found any cable with the same interface to link the kit to my host pc.
Stating this, I was wondering if there's a way to communicate and give commands to the MityCAM by USB connection, or what type of cable I need to link it to my host pc by CameraLink Interface.

Thank you very much for support.

Alessandro

I am sorry this is so late.

You can get camera link cables from many vendors, such as Pureformance

You will also need a Camera Link Frame Grabber to use the Camera Link interface.

The Supported Framegrabbers CMV8000 lists the frame grabbers we have tested.

There is also a DLL for the USB 2.0 interface if you want to write a C or C++ application. Let me know if this is still of interest.
