BOCA RATON, Fla., April 10, 2006 -- A new Framelink PCMCIA frame grabber will be among the mobile imaging components Imperx Inc. will exhibit at the SPIE Defense and Security Symposium, to be held April 17-21 in Orlando (Kissimmee), Fla.

The Framelink PCMCIA frame grabber slips into the PCMCIA slots found in most laptop computers, palmtop computers, PDAs and many other high-mobility computing devices. By employing the industry standard Camera Link interface, Framelink puts high-performance image acquisition anywhere it's needed, Imperx said.

The company said Framelink is the first digital Camera Link frame grabber for laptops. The card features plug-n-play operation with hot insertion/removal and includes an intelligent scatter/gather DMA engine with a generous supply of onboard memory. A full software suite, including drivers and applications, is provided, and an optional software development kit (SDK) is available.

Framelink features include:

  • PCMCIA Cardbus interface;
  • LSmall form factor PCMCIA Type II;
  • Intelligent scatter/gather DMA for fast, efficient use of PCIbus bandwidth;
  • onboard memory for fast image acquisition;
  • complies with the Base Camera Link standard.

Imperx said Framelink's robust, industry-standard Camera Link interface makes it the ideal frame-grabber for engineers for industrial, medical, security and military applications. Camera Link provides a video-optimized download channel that is twice as fast as Gigabit Ethernet and a low-voltage digital signal (LVDS) pathway for bidirectional asynchronous communication between the host computer and camera. This allows the host to upload application software, configurations and trigger signals directly to any Camera-Link compliant digital camera in real time, with virtually no latency.
