VIDEO: New Dual-Channel PoCL Frame Grabber Supports 64-bit Addressing

ESC San Jose, Ca. ” At the Embedded Systems Conference here, ADLINK released its PCIe-CPL64, which supports the power over camera link (PoCL) standard.

The PCIe-CPL64 is specifically designed for cost-sensitive computer vision applications by providing two base configuration channels with data transfer rates up to 4.0 Gb/s and pixel clock rates up to 85 MHz. The PoCL feature reduces costs by reducing wiring as external power adapters would not be necessary.

The PCIe-CPL64 can also support non-PoCL cameras automatically through SafePower function which is designed for backwards compatibility with non-PoCL cameras.

By supporting the extended memory space of 64-bit operating system such as the 64-bit editions of Microsoft Windows XP and Microsoft Vista, the PCIe-CPL64 is well-suited for large address space vision applications such as flat panel display, LCD, and solar cell surface inspections.

The PCIe-CPL64 provides two TTL/LVDS trigger inputs to synchronize the image acquisition process with an external encoder or position sensor and two programmable trigger output to manage triggered events such as activating a strobe light.

The PCIe-CPL64 supports both 32-bit and 64-bit editions of Microsoft Windows XP and Microsoft Windows Vista operating systems. ADLINK also provides CamCreator, a simple, yet powerful, utility to setup, configure, test, and debug a system without requiring any software programming.

The PCIe-CPL64 is currently available in the low $800s for OEM quantities. To learn more, go to
