Grabbing frames

Coreco Imaging has released a new series of Camera Link compatible digital frame grabbers for the 64-bit PCI bus.

With their ability to acquire images from two unsynchronised cameras simultaneously and to transfer images at a rate of up to 528MB/s, they are claimed to be the industry’s fastest.

The X64-CL Series actually comprises two family members: the X64-CL Dual, which supports two Base or one Medium Camera Link cameras and the X64-CL Full, which supports one Full Camera Link camera.

The X64-CL Series supports all standard Camera Link configurations from eight to 64-bit pixels and up to eight taps of eight-bit. A key flexibility differentiator from other Camera Link frame grabbers is the X64-CL Series’ ability to support two cameras with different tap configurations simultaneously.

The single-slot X64-CL Series is PCI 2.1, 64/32-bit, 66/33MHz, 5V/3.3V slot compatible. Fully compliant with Microsoft Windows NT 4.0, Windows 2000, and Windows XP, it fully supports Coreco Imaging’s Sapera programming package and application development using C/C++ DLLs and ActiveX controls with Microsoft Visual Studio or Visual Basic version 6.0 or higher.

The frame grabber is scheduled to enter full production in Q3, 2002. Prototype units are available now.
