Emcraft i.MX 8M Mini System-On-Module
3D Sensing meets Processing Power

  • The Emcraft starter kit provides a modular hardware platform enabling development of embedded ToF applications using the NXP i.MX 8M Mini SOM and a pmd ToF module. The kit is assembled as a miniature multi-layer system. This stack, when assembled together, presents an i.MX 8M Mini-based embedded computer with ToF vision to develop powerful applications.

3D Cameras from ifm
Machine Vision for your Production Line

  • Industrial grade 3D cameras from ifm electronic use Time-of-Flight technology from pmd for a big number of applications. Example use-cases are autonomous navigation of robots, the detection of volume, distance or fill level, or completeness checking. ifm's 3D cameras are built for maximum reliability and durability and offer easy integration into existing automations.
