Dalsa Corp. has released the Xcelera-HS PX8 frame grabber to support its Piranha HS 12k 90-kHz camera. Based on the Xcelera-CL frame grabbers, the HS series leverages the PCI Express platform to bring traditional image acquisition and processing technology to a new level. With the company’s HSLink interface, the frame grabbers 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 interface delivers scalable bandwidth in 300-MB/s steps, from 300 to 6000 MB/s. Applications include solar cells, flat panel displays, semiconductor electronics inspection and machine vision.
