GIGABIT ETHERNET SUPPORT
Jul 2006National Instruments Corp.Request Info
National Instruments has announced that its Vision Acquisition software now supports Gigabit Ethernet cameras, enabling engineers to acquire images from thousands of cameras and to move easily among IEEE-1394a, IEEE-1394b, Camera Link and analog interfaces. Using the software and GigE vision cameras, images can be acquired at greater than 100 MB/s over standard Gigabit Ethernet while using only a fraction of a computer’s CPU, leaving power available for complex machine vision algorithms. The software allows engineers to speak to GigE vision cameras and TCP/IP network devices via the same port and to use the port for acquiring images as well as for general-purpose Web applications, all without switching drivers.
