High-speed GigE machine vision cameras
Teledyne DALSA has announced its Xtium 2-XGV PX8, a GigE Vision compatible image acquisition board that features a real-time depacketization engine to convert GigE Vision image packets into ready-to-use images.
The company says it also has a hardware-assisted packet resend logic that improves the reliability of image transfers while reducing the CPU overhead. Xtium2-XGV PX8 targets image acquisition from single or multiple independent 10, 5, 2.5, or 1GigE Vision area scan cameras, line scan cameras, and 3D profile sensors.
Teledyne DALSA says building on the field-proven technology and performance of its Xtium2 family of image acquisition boards, the new Xtium2-XGV PX8 is a half-length multi-port 10GigE frame grabber for PCI Express Gen 3.0 x8 platforms. It can support up to 32 cameras in a variety of different link-speeds and scanning configurations. Available in a four or two port SFP+ configurations, the Xtium2-XGV PX8 can sustain aggregate input bandwidth of 4 GByte/s (4×10 Gb/s) and up to 6.8 GBytes/sec output bandwidth to the host memory. It can also perform a variety of on-board format conversions like Bayer to RGB, Bi-colour to RGB, etc. before sending the images to the host computer.
For a more reliable GigE vision system, Xtium2-XGV supports hardware assisted packet resend and action command for external event synchronisation. It is also capable of transmitting/re-transmitting IEEE-1588 messages without requiring an external switch.
