Vendors of embedded frame grabbers are looking to support the latest single-board computers with PC/104-format boards.

Designers of embedded machine-vision and image-processing systems have several choices when implementing their products. Of course, a number of off-the-shelf boards are available on standard backplanes, such as PCI, that allow image capture, processing, and display functions to be incorporated into PC-based systems. However, for many embedded medical, aerospace/military, and hazardous applications where ruggedness, small size, and low power are critical, designers may be forced into building proprietary solutions.
