Frame Grabber for Machine Vision Camera
WATERLOO, Ontario, Canada, Dec. 9, 2009 – Dalsa Corp. has announced the availability of the Xcelera-HS PX8 frame grabber to support the new Piranha HS 12k 90-kHz camera, which was introduced at the same time. Building on the field-proven technology and performance of the company’s Xcelera-CL frame grabbers, the Xcelera-HS series leverages the PCI Express platform to improve traditional image acquisition and processing technology in terms of performance and flexibility.

With the company's newly developed HSLink interface, the frame grabber can deliver image acquisition bandwidth of 1.5 GB/s and host transfer bandwidth of 2 GB/s over multiple-lane PCI Express implementations. The proprietary machine vision connectivity HSLink interface takes the key strengths of Camera Link and adds new features and functions. It delivers scalable bandwidth in 300 MB/s steps, from 300 to 6000 MB/s, while using globally available off-the-shelf components. A white paper detailing the HSLink interface is available for download.

The frame grabber was built within the company's “trigger-to-image reliability” technology framework to leverage proprietary hardware and software innovations to control, monitor and correct the image acquisition process. Applications include solar cell, flat panel display, semiconductor and electronics inspections, as well as general machine vision applications.

All Xcelera series frame grabbers are supported by the proprietary Sapera Essential software package, a cost-effective machine vision software toolkit that bundles board level acquisition and control with advanced image processing capability. The software’s standard processing tool run-time license is offered at no additional charge when combined with the company’s frame grabbers. The license includes access to more than 400 image processing functions, an area-based (normalized correlation based) template matching tool, blob analysis and a lens correction tool.

Key features of the frame grabber include an ultracompact CX4 cable and connector, a dedicated communication channel that supports data rates of up to 300 MB/s, and built-in support for data forwarding for distributed image processing. The RoHS-compliant device supports Windows 32-/64-bit , Windows 7, Windows XP and Windows Vista.
