With the release of Lumenera’s Linux software development kit 2.0—which supports the popular Ubuntu Linux operating system—the company’s line of USB 3.0 cameras now feature Linux support.

Linux SDK 2.0 software maximizes the features of Lumenera’s USB 3.0 cameras, officially supporting the Lt225, Lt425, Lt365R, Lt665R, and Lt965R models. It also supports Ubuntu 12.04 on 32 and 64-bit x86 platforms. Additionally, it has the same common API call format at Lumenera’s Windows SDK, for easy migration between platforms.

On April 1, Lumenera added to support Ubunti Linux with their cameras because of its widespread use by development teams around the world, perhaps because of the Long Term Support (LTS) releases that are supported for five years, making it an ideal choice for developers, according to Lumenera.

"Linux is growing in popularity for developers working on x86 and embedded platforms because Linux offers flexibility, maximizes hardware resources and is low cost vs. Windows," said Eric Ramsden, Product Manager at Lumenera Corporation. "Lumenera has been supporting Linux development with our cameras for many years and is working to formally expand our support for our latest USB 3.0 cameras and popular Linux platforms."

The Linux SDK 2.0 is now available.
