Frame Grabber Rides On PCI Express

Video applications take bandwidth. Enter PCI Express, which has what it takes to handle the PC_EYE/ASYNC frame grabber from American Eltec. It can manage four independent (nonsynchronized) monochrome camera signals in an industrial setting. The board utilizes two FPGAs. One handles the x1 lane PCI Express interface, and the other handles the video sequencers and sync generators. The 8-bit channels can operate up to 25 MHz. The board supports Windows, Linux, VxWorks, and OS-9. Pricing starts at $1195.
