Ximea xiSpec Hyperspectral Cameras with USB3 Vision

Quick Overview

These cameras apply narrow-band spectral filters at pixel-level using semiconductor thin-film processing, imec’s technology enables hyperspectral image sensor solutions with extreme compactness, low weight, high reliability and proven capabilities to be mass produced at low cost and in volume. 


XIMEA coupled imec’s hyperspectral sensors with its xiQ camera platform which features exceptional form factor that is unique in hyperspectral imaging: xiQ cameras offer 26.4 x 26.4 x 31 mm in dimension and mere 31 grams in weight. With such size XIMEA can proudly claim the title of world’s smallest hyperspectral camera. Beside high-speed USB3.0 interface also provides power over USB thus removing the need in expensive and bulky frame-grabbers or separate power cables.


  • Smallest Hyperspectral camera - Compact, lightweight with only 26.4 x 26.4 x 31 mm, 32 grams (1)
  • Cost efficient - Excellent value and price due to utilization of new technology
  • Cool economy - Low power consumption with 1.6 Watt and minimal heat dissipation
  • All-around support - USB 3.0 support for Windows, Linux, Mac OSX, ARM
  • Powerful potential - Highest spatial and spectral resolution possible with 5Gb/s interface
  • Optimized - 2048 parallel, "on-chip" integrated spectroscopes with 100 points of spectral resolution each
  • AIA standard - USB3 Vision standard compliant
  • Industry standard interface - Compatible with USB 3.0 SuperSpeed specification
  • Fastest - High speed, high frame rate: based on 170fps at 2 Mpix resolution
  • Connectivity and Synchronization - Programmable opto-isolated input and output, 3 status LEDs
  • Easy deployment - Range of accessories and wide hardware and software integration
  • Highly Customizable - Variety of sensor options, which can be further adjusted to match requirements
  • Interoperability increase - Continuous embrace of new software and hardware partners
