Building on the field proven capability of Teledyne DALSA’s Xcelera frame grabber series, the Xtium™-CL MX4 is based on industry standard PCI Express™ PCIe 2.0 expansion bus to deliver high speed access to host memory. The new Xtium series offers higher bandwidth to sustain Camera Link® 80-Bit modes over longer cable distances and supports a wide variety of area and line scan color/monochrome cameras, all in a compact, half-length, single slot solution.
The Xtium-CL MX4 takes full advantage of PCIe PCIe 2.0 x4 platform to deliver a bandwidth in excess of 1.7GB/s, while at the same time supporting PCIe Gen 1.0 slot to deliver 850MB/s. The newly engineered, on-board, Data Transfer Engine (DTE) produces maximum bandwidth without the need for specialized motherboards or chipsets. By enabling maximum sustained throughput and ready-to-use image data, the Xtium-CL MX4 minimizes CPU usage and improves processing times for the host applications. In addition, the Xtium series has been engineered with enhanced memory architecture allowing it to handle different sensor tap topologies while sustaining color decoding at the maximum frame/line rate.
The Xtium-CL MX4 offers built-in, robust electrical signals for external event synchronization, and status notification LEDs. One or more boards can be synchronized to acquire images from multiple area or line scan cameras simultaneously. The Xtium-CL MX4 supports one Base, Medium, Full or 80-bit mode with Base/Medium/Full PoCL capabilities, as well as 2 independent base camera link cameras.
The Xtium series is engineered to meet the ever-increasing image resolution and faster frame rates of today’s camera technology. So in addition to PCIe PCIe 2.0 x4 and Camera Link, upcoming models will support Camera Link HS as well as other emerging interface standards on a PCIe PCIe 2.0 x8 platform.
