Our API delivers outstanding value to developers through four pillars: simplicity, reliability, efficiency, and speed.

Simplicity - With the Cognex Mobile Barcode SDK, it is no longer necessary to develop separate applications nor manage multiple software and hardware solutions and deployments for mobile device barcode reading.

Reliability - The Cognex Mobile Barcode SDK is the most reliable barcode reading technology available for mobile applications and smartphone integration, regardless of platform, development framework, or barcode symbology.

Efficiency - As a tool developed with the logistics, manufacturing, healthcare, and commercial services industries in mind, it is built with efficiency for the end-user, as well as simplicity for the application developer.

Speed - The Cognex Mobile Barcode SDK is tuned to provide fast and reliable barcode reading for smartphones and tablets. For damaged codes, challenging lighting conditions, or harsh environments, the SDK can leverage the power of the ruggedized, high-performance MX Series of Cognex mobile terminals.

The Cognex Mobile Barcode SDK supports all major barcode symbologies, including Aztec Code, Codabar, Code 11, Code 25 (Interleaved, Industrial and ITF-14), Code 39, Code 93, Code 128, Data Matrix, DotCode, EAN, ISBN, GS1 Databar, MaxiCode, MSI Plessey, PDF417, Postal Code, QR Code (Micro and Standard), and UPC barcode types, as well as all GS1 specific sub types like GS1 QR Code, GS1 DataMatrix and GS1-128.

The Cognex Mobile Barcode SDK supports the most powerful cross-platform development frameworks, including: Xamarin, Cordova / PhoneGap, and Ionic.

You can add powerful parser plugins to the Cognex Mobile Barcode SDK at no additional cost when you purchase an SDK license or hardware accessory. Plugins include industry standard parsers such as AAMVA, GS1, IUID, Structured Carrier Messages, and more!
