Teledyne DALSA (Billerica, MA) has released the Xtium-CL PX4 series of frame grabbers. In addition to PCIe Gen 2.0 ×4 and Camera Link®, upcoming models will support Camera Link HS® as well as other interface standards on a PCIe Gen 2.0 ×8 platform.

The Xtium series sustains Camera Link 80-Bit modes over longer cable distances, and the frame grabbers support a variety of area and line scan color and monochrome cameras.

The newly engineered, on-board, Data Transfer Engine (DTE) produces 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.

Other features of the Xtium-CL PX4 include up to 512 MB of highspeed image memory; single slot with reconfigurable camera control and general purpose input/outputs; Sapera™ Vision SDK and Sapera CamExpert compatibility; Sapera Standard tools run-time license; and support for Microsoft® Windows® 7, Windows 8 32/64-bit, and WOW64.
