6 Interfacing and Demo Applications

There are some demo and interfacing applications available on our software download section.

Graphical Stream Analyzer Lite
A small application for a getting started with the camera.
Visualizer
A more powerful tool where all registers can be read and written and which shows the amplitude and distance image. It can also be used as a getting started tool to get familiar with the Sentis-ToF-M100.
Interface Abstraction Library
A library for Windows and Linux which abstracts the TCP and UDP interface protocol of the camera. Using this library the user is able to interface the camera using a simple API without awareness of the underlying TCP and UDP protocols.

7 Firmware Development Package

There are two packages available which allows the user to bring its own application on the Sentis-ToF-M100 device. The first package is based on our Blacksheep OS operating system. The other one is based on uClinux.
