Building on the field proven technology and performance of DALSA’s Xcelera-CL frame grabbers, the Xcelera-HS Series leverages the PCI Express (PCIe) platform to bring traditional image acquisition and processing technology to new levels of performance and flexibility.
The PCIe host interface is a point-to-point host interface allowing simultaneous image acquisition and transfer involving little intervention from the host CPU. Designed with the requirements of the machine vision OEMs in mind, the Xcelera-HS PX8 combines HS-Link interface with onboard preprocessing functions such as shading correction, Bayer decoding etc.
Addres sing the emerging needs of bandwidth-hungry machine vision applications, DALSA's Xcelera HS Series is defining next generation frame grabber capabilities to deliver image acquisition bandwidth of 1.8GByte/sec and host transfer bandwidth of 2GByte/s over multiple-lane PCI Express implementations with room to grow.
The Xcelera-HS PX8 has been built within DALSA's Trigger-to-Image Reliability technology framework. Trigger-to-Image Reliability leverages DALSA's hardware and software innovations to control, monitor and correct the image acquisition process from the time that an external trigger event occurs to the moment the data is sent to the host, providing traceability when errors do occur and permitting recovery from those errors.
