IVER, England, Oct. 30, 2015 — Active Silicon Ltd. has expanded its FireBird line of machine vision frame grabbers with the 1xCLD-2PE4. The board conforms to the latest version 2.0 Camera Link specifications, including both 80-bit modes: 8 bit 10-tap and 10 bit 8-tap modes — often referred to as Camera Link Deca — at clock rates up to 85 MHz. The Gen2 ×4 PCIe bus can sustain a 1.7-GB/s throughput and is fast enough to cope with the full data rate that the Camera Link Deca interface can support. The frame grabber also supports capture from two simultaneous base cameras, as well as single-base, medium and full configurations. Power over Camera Link (PoCL) is provided. The device uses proprietary ActiveDMA direct memory access engine technology to guarantees zero CPU intervention, high speed and very low latency in image-data transfers.
