Cameras Questions

Question Asked:

I am creating a new GigE Vision compliant camera and am defining all of the registers. Registers will be continually defined, added, changed etc. When the register definitions change, I want to be able to auto generate the XML against the genicam schema. Is there a recommended way to do this? MS excel :- / ?? Ideally I'd like to be able to version control this register set wherever or however it is stored.

Steve, I think you hit an important point and my experience as a GEV/U3V/CXP IP vendor shows no standard way to plan and auto generate XML files. But one note on "When the register definitions change" -> do not really change registers, as the XML is the central point of documentation of what you camera can/cannot do, so keeping the XML stable over all/most/... version will help a lot in all design aspects of you DEVICE design. And one question back to you. Can I present you question at the next GeniCam meeting take place in early October, as I think the existing group is not really aware of this problem for "new comers"? Sorry, Werner
