The European Machine Vision Association (EMVA) has made the “Global Machine Vision Interface Standards” brochure available for download on its website.

This important industry brochure was an international collaborative effort between the three leading machine vision and imaging associations, the AIA (North America), the JIIA (Japan) and the EMVA (Europe) and their collective members. It presents vision industry interface standards and features detailed specifications on hardware and software. It includes a comparison chart, which can be used to facilitate the selection of the most appropriate standard for an application.

Hardware standards covered in the brochure are Camera Link, Camera Link HS, GigE Vision, USB3 Vision and CoaXPress. Software standards detailed include GenICam and IIDC2. Volunteers from each association’s standards committees and respective standards work groups, along with association staff, worked to develop this brochure, which is geared to support system integrators and end users of vision and imaging technology.
