Using GenICam Applications
USB3 Vision is a communication interface for vision applications based on the USB 3.0 technology. All cameras supporting USB3 Vision interact the same way with software also supporting USB3 Vision.
For more information on the standard, visit visiononline.org.
The standard defines required elements for camera identification, control, and output. It uses GenICam, a programming interface for camera attribute control. GenICam allows camera vendors to define features and attributes in an XML file stored inside the camera. The file is parsed by the host application when the camera is initially discovered. One of the key benefits of GenICam is the ability for camera vendors to introduce new camera-specific features without needing to update the host application.
Each camera attribute, such as exposure time, is controlled by a specific GenICam feature. The camera includes an XML device description file for interfacing with third-party GenICam-compliant APIs.
