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…

Thank You For Joining Us at Photonics West 2018!

Thank You For Joining Us at Photonics West 2018! A huge thanks to the many visitors to our booth at Photonics West this year, it was our best showing yet and is sure to remain a highlight of 2018 for us. This year at the show we launched our new 3D Imaging System, which was running live at the booth. The system uses our own structured light DMD projector, synchronized via an advanced triggering interface with our smart camera to capture 4 million full color 3D points in 250 ms. The system’s fast data transfer via USB 3.0, plus GPU…

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…
