Do Boson 320 and 640 have Linux support via the SDK?

The Boson 640 camera will have a new SDK when it is released.

Several customers have ported the Boson SDK to their version of Linux without difficulty. Video is over UVC, so check your distribution for compatibility.16-bit gray scale format often requires some programming, because the fourCC code “Y16” format is not supported directly by many operating systems. If this is the format that you are interested in, note that none of the Boson cameras are radiometric at this time, so the video output is not convertible to absolute temperature. Nearly all versions of Linux can handle the colorized “I420” video format if V4L2 or the equivalent is present.
