Frame grabber acquires data from four cameras

The IC-ASYN single machine-vision board integrates four frame grabbers on one full-size PCI bus card. Interfaced to multiple cameras, the board can digitize as many as four independent, asynchronous channels of 80-bit data from RS-170, CCIR, or progressive- scan cameras at up to 20 MHz/channel. Each channel has independent external trigger, frame reset, strobe, sync, timebase settings, area of interest settings, and input conditioning circuits. Multi-frame modes allow as many as eight images to

Interfaced to multiple cameras, the board can digitize as many as four independent, asynchronous channels of 80-bit data from RS-170, CCIR, or progressive- scan cameras at up to 20 MHz/channel. Each channel has independent external trigger, frame reset, strobe, sync, timebase settings, area of interest settings, and input conditioning circuits. Multi-frame modes allow as many as eight images to be consecutively acquired into each of four 4000 x 256 linear frame buffers. On-board 4-Mbyte frame buffer and DMA bus master transfer images to host memory in 4 ms. Vision software tools are available. Prices start at $1995.
