SEGGER introduces emUSB-Host video support
emUSB-Host provides PC-like, plug-and-play support: Once a device is connected, it simply works without the need for any action by the user. Now a USB camera/webcam can be easily connected to any embedded system equipped with a USB-Host port - from a simple, single-chip system and up.
An embedded system uses less power than other alternatives such as small computers. It can also be more cost-effective, especially when required in large numbers.
“Wherever you use an embedded system you can now easily add video to it,” says Dirk Akemann, Marketing Manager at SEGGER. “Because it is simple to connect a camera, it is now possible to quickly construct systems that process videos. For example for a car, this could be a dashcam recorder, with a family of devices offering monochrome, color, and varying resolutions, using emFile to write to an SD card. In process automation, it could be an optical inspection system for quality assurance.”
