  • Analog Frame Grabber
Jun 2011
BitFlow Inc.Request Info
WOBURN, Mass., June 13, 2011 — Bitflow Inc. is offering semiconductor and industrial vision OEMs an inexpensive alternative to digital camera systems with its Alta-AN1, an analog frame grabber that reduces machine vision system costs.

Requiring only simple cabling, the frame grabber can acquire from almost any analog camera on the market, from high-speed asynchronous-reset monochrome cameras to super high-resolution color high-definition TV cameras, saving the user the cost of a digital system (camera, cabling and frame grabber) where analog resolution will suffice.

It is a half-size x4 PCI Express board supporting data rates of up to 1 GB/s and can be configured for unique triggering modes, gain/offset and destination buffers. It features a discrete analog front end with three analog-to-digital converters, and provides power to the camera to further simplify its deployment.

The camera is supported with a proprietary software development kit (SDK), available for 32-and 64-bit Windows platforms. The SDK will work with all of the company's current and future frame grabbers. It provides drivers, dynamic link libraries and configuration utilities for those interested in using third-party software.

Although the Alta-AN1 supports a single camera, the company also offers the Alta-An2 for two cameras and the Alta-AN4 for four.
