MT88S 2D Imager

Future-proof, Android 2D solution

MT88S 2D Imager is built with a mega-pixel CMOS sensor, electric interface highly compatible with existing 2D imagers of global leaders, and high-speed shutter delivering extraordinary motion tolerance on all barcodes. Adopting Google Native Framework, MT88S 2D Imager is future-proof with its Barcode Service SDK requiring no modification for future Android OS update. As a result, implementing MT88S 2D Imager not only reduces total cost of ownership, but greatly increases throughput and productivity in virtually any application.

Google Native Framework

The future-proof MT88S 2D Imager adopts Google Native Framework, making it compatible with Android 8.x, 9.x, 10.x and later version. With Marson Barcode Service SDK requiring NO modification for future Android update, the development cost and time needed for product integration and maintenance are greatly reduced.

Utilizing existing MIPI interface

Capable of managing the combined operation of its CMOS sensor, illumination system and LED aiming, MT88S 2D Imager can be connected to the host via MIPI interface (I2C bus), supported by nowadays PDAs in the market, which means integration of MT88S 2D Imager does not need any hardware change or PCB re-layout in most cases.

Supports Android Barcode Service SDK, SDL and API

MT88S 2D Imager also comes with Marson Barcode Service SDK that includes sensor driver, software decoding library of all major 1D, 2D symbologies, Postal Codes in the market and software API required for configuring imager illumination, aiming, symbologies settings and data format, thus saving customer the trouble of developing software application from scratch.
