Frame grabber interfaces to PCI bus
The M-Vision 1500 16-bit digital frame-grabber board couples area- and linescan cameras to the PCI bus. It can operate as PCI master or slave and achieve 50 Mbyte/s sustained transfer speeds in master mode. Pixel depths of 8, 10, 12, 14, and 16 bits are supported; 8 bits can be selected and displayed in real time on a VGA monitor. Interface programming for a range of digital cameras at rates to 40 million pixels/s is performed by loading a configuration (.ini) file. Digital video is stored in on-board VRAM or transferred in real time to system memory and a VGA card for display. MuTech Corp., 85 Rangeway Rd., N.
