Subject: FLIR 10Gbit Ethernet camera question

Folks,

 

FLIR (formerly Point Grey) has introduced 10 Gbit Ethernet cameras.  They currently sell a 4096 x 3000 pixel version which can do 68 frames/s for $3,950.  They will soon start selling a 2448 x 2048 camera which can do 162 frames/s (price not announced yet).  These are very interesting cameras, since they use the Sony CMOS chips with very low read noise and global shutter.  These data rates are 775-796 MB/s, which is more than 2x faster than the same chips using a USB-3 interface.

 

These cameras cannot use the FlyCap2 SDK that other Point Grey cameras use.  They require their new Spinnaker SDK.  They are GeniCAM compliant, so they may also work with the aravisGigE driver.  Note that their new BlackFlyS cameras also require the Spinnaker SDK, they don’t work with FlyCap2 either.

 

My questions:

-          Has anyone begun an areaDetector driver that uses the Spinnaker SDK?

-          Does anyone know if these 10Gbit cameras will work with the aravisGigE driver?  Any idea if aravisGigE is capable of running at the 10GBit Ethernet speeds?

 

Thanks,

Mark
