PCI Express Frame Grabber

WOBURN, Mass., Feb. 13, 2012 — Building on the success of its Karbon-CL line of PCI Express frame grabbers, BitFlow Inc. has unveiled the model CL4-F featuring interfaces for two independent base, medium or full Camera Link digital video cameras.

Because it supports two full-configuration Camera Link cameras, it reduces system cost without compromising image resolution or data rate speed, while also minimizing the hardware footprint.

Two independent channels with separate trigger signals allow the frame grabber to acquire from two cameras asynchronously, whether they are line- or area-scan types in monochrome or RGB. Alternatively, it can be configured with a single trigger to simultaneously control both cameras. It provides a full set of camera control signals and sync inputs for each connected camera, and acquires data up to 160 bits at an 85-MHz pixel clock rate, and direct memory access (DMA) at data rates up to 2 GB/s.

Truly plug-and-play, the CL4-F uses an x8 PCI Express bus interface and standard Camera Link cabling. The user loads the included software, plugs in the cameras and begins acquiring images. The CamEd graphical user interface enables either fixed- or variable-size images to be acquired, plus features programmable region of interest sub-windowing capability. As with all Karbon frame grabbers, the CL4-F leverages proprietary FlowThru technology, which provides zero latency access to data, low CPU usage and unlimited DMA destination size.
