Embedded USB 3 Streaming to Ajile DMD from Jetson TX2

Embedded USB 3 Streaming to Ajile DMD from Jetson TX2

Many Digital Micromirror Device users look to Ajile’s DMD controllers for their superior speed and flexibility. Now it’s possible to have precise, high-speed DMD control from a completely embedded system. The full Ajile Software Suite has been released for the NVIDIA Jetson TX2 and the performance so far has been excellent. Most DMD controllers and projectors depend on video interfaces like HDMI to receive image data to display. Not only do these video interfaces offer limited speed and control, but they also typically need a full PC with a video card. With the Ajile software SDK and GUI running directly…

Press Release – Ajile and LACI To Collaborate On Research

PRESS RELEASE Ajile and LACI to Collaborate On Research By R. Gribben Jan 05, 2018 Ottawa, Canada – The Laboratory of Applied Computational Imaging (LACI) has announced its intention to use Ajile Light Industries’ high-speed DMD controllers for work on the development of high-speed 3D imaging technologies. This research will extend through the end of 2018, is hoped to yield new imaging techniques and instruments for use in research, industry, and biomedicine, and will be funded in part through an NSERC Engage grant. This is the latest in a series of contracts with universities, research institutes, and technology companies since the controller’s launch…

Improved Imaging With Sub-Pixel Resolution

Improved Imaging With Sub-Pixel Resolution

Sub-Pixel Resolution For Improved Image Quality As 3D imaging continues to become increasingly important in both research and industry, tools are becoming available to turn theoretical research into practical technology. Our systems are well positioned to do this, and we are now in the process of enabling sub-pixel resolution to achieve even higher levels of 3D image quality. A key limitation of optical instruments is the size of the sensor’s pixels. When features being imaged are smaller than the pixel size, typical responses are to use a more expensive sensor with more pixels per unit area or to modify the…

Ajile 10x Boost to Data Transfer Speeds With USB3.0

Ajile 10x Boost to Data Transfer Speeds With USB3.0

High Speed Data Transfer with AJD-4500-U and AJP-4500-U Ajile’s key strength lies in our products’ ability to create, control, and capture light at high speeds without sacrificing accuracy. We are pleased to announce an important step forward with the release of the AJD-4500-U and AJP-4500-U versions of our DMD controller and structured light projector this month. The -U versions feature USB3.0 data transfer at speeds exceeding 2000 binary frames/second. This upgrade lets users take full advantage of the high frame rates featured by Ajile’s DMD-based systems. Emerging developments in the realm of image processing depend on a constant flow of…

Single-Pixel Camera Research at Photonics West 2017

Single-Pixel Camera Research at Photonics West 2017

Ajile Light Industries has been invited to present its research into a novel method of 3D calibration with a single-pixel camera at SPIE Photonics West 2017. The research was done in partnership with the University of Ottawa Paradise Research Laboratory and with the support of The National Research Council. This was part of a long-term NRC-IRAP project aimed at improving the accuracy of 3D imaging by using digital micromirror (DMD)-based imaging in scientific and industrial applications. The researchers determined that by using a single optical path to project and capture images, sources of error were reduced and accuracy improved. This was done…
