Teledyne DALSA unveiled the Xtium-CL PX4, the first member of a new series of frame grabbers. The Xtium series is engineered to meet the ever-increasing image resolution and faster frame rates of today’s camera technology. In addition to PCIe Gen 2.0 x4 and Camera Link®, upcoming models will support Camera Link HS™ as well as other popular interface standards on a PCIe Gen 2.0 x8 platform.
The new Xtium series delivers higher bandwidth to sustain Camera Link 80-Bit modes over longer cable distances and supports a wide variety of area and line scan color and monochrome cameras, all in a compact, single slot solution.
The newly engineered, on-board, Data Transfer Engine (DTE) produces maximum bandwidth without the need for specialized motherboards or chipsets. By enabling maximum sustained throughput and ready-to-use image data, the Xtium–CL PX4 minimizes CPU usage and improves processing times for host applications. In addition, the Xtium-CL PX4 has been engineered with enhanced memory architecture allowing it to handle different sensor tap topologies while sustaining color decoding at the maximum frame/line rate.
