Ultra fast Multi-camera System
  • Maximum compactness: smallest form factor cameras and compact connectors allow closest sensor-to-sensor proximity

  • Aggregation into one high bandwidth upstream (up to 64Gbit/s)

  • Full utilization of PCIe architecture with point to point connection and direct memory access

  • Use of standard components allow simple assembly for the creation of a custom platform

  • No need for external or additional expansion backplanes

  • Support for Windows, Linux and MacOS

  • Multiple reference instances of the xSWITCH already available 

  • Board shape can be tailored precisely to application requirements

  • Benefit from XIMEA´s unique experience and expertise in the field of PCIe


  • Connect multiple cameras to a single PC

  • Select from wide range of sensor resolutions and frame rates

  • Combine housed and board level camera types 

  • Choice of different number of PCIe lanes and PCIe standards
    (2, 4, 8 lanes / Gen2 or Gen3)

  •  Choice of various connectors: flat-flex option, board to board or iPass

  • Choose between flat-flex connectors with vertical or horizontal orientation

  • Bridge small or large distances of >100 m by selecting copper cable or optical fiber cable
