A 3U CompactPCI version of the Meteor-II multichannel frame grabber has been released by Matrox Imaging. It is suitable for monochrome or component RGB interlaced- and progressive-scan video acquisition, and for use in harsh industrial environments and deeply embedded applications. Hardware trigger support is provided for use in machine vision applications that require synchronization to external events. The device includes the video interface ASIC, a memory controller for managing real-time acquisition into onboard memory with reformatting capabilities and the ability to stream image data over the PCI bus without constant host CPU intervention.
