Hi, You may want to check our our NTx-Pro family which is intended to take in parallel digital video and allow you to grab this data over Ethernet using the GigE Vision protocol. Geoff

The answer will depend on what PCI board you have. You will need to provide information about the PCI board manufacturer including which setup file, or contact the board manufacturer directly.

Hello Byongrok Kim, EPIX has capture mode for 4-tap 16-bit Camera Link available in XCAP software with the Full Configuration Frame Grabbers. Concerning the 4-tap 14-bit case, please let me know what is the desired bit arrangement and we should be able to help you. Kind regards.

Hi Maria, Sorry, but I can't answer your question as stated. But for your system, would you be open to using one of our products, which can convert Camera Link into GigE Vision? Once in GigE Vision, you can receive the data using our SDK, and process on a PC as you wish. It might be a quicker route to complete your project. I noticed you previously posted a question about a Dalsa Pirranha camera. Is this Camera Link base, medium, or full? If base, then perhaps Pleora's iPORT PT1000-CL can be helpful? See http://www.pleora.com/our-products/iport-video-transmitters/iport-pt1000-cl. Please let me know. John Phillips (email@example.com)

I think what you're looking for is covered by the specs on the National Semiconductor Channel Link transmitter and receiver chips. I'm looking at the Camera Link 2.0 spec and in section 7.0 Chipset Criteria, you'll see the specific National parts listed, such as: Transmitter: DS90LV047, 3.3V Receiver: DS90LV048, 3.3V I've found this Channel Link Design Guide from National useful: http://www.national.com/assets/en/boards/channellink_design_guide.pdf Email me if you can't get it.

Maria, look at XAPP485 from XILINX. If that does not help give me a mail as we have IP around this, which we have running on Spartan3 and Spartan6.

Perry, This seems like a traditional challenge with today's technologies, not just with machine vision, but with all test and manufacturing systems. Just out of interest, how long has the system served you? We are a machine vision integrator and create systems like these, but I'm assuming your biggest challenge right now is even if you are able to replace the hardware how would you verify it. Do you have all the documentation for how the system works etc, how it was validated etc.? If you need any further help please don't hesitate to get in touch. Good Luck.

Hello Perry - My company, Automation Doctor Inc, was founded to solve this exact problem. We replace aging vision systems with new technology. We are different than most in that we are qualified to perform FDA validation for medical devices, including 21 CFR part 11, IQ OQ and PQ. Send us your specification, sample parts and a request for quote from purchasing and we will respond with a fixed price proposal. You will own the resulting software, and as always, if you are not satisfied, you do not pay. Call us. Thanks.

Dear Carl, thanks for your question. Even if we are manufacturer of frame grabbers, there could be a solution with our imaging library VisualApplets and an embedded FPGA board. VisualApplets helps to program FPGA chips by graphical flow charts. The solution works hardware-based with high performance and CPU independent. There will be some open issues like the sensor resolution, the frequency of the grabbing and sampling, the sub-pixel accuracy of the distance measurement, the processing of the resulting values, etc. to define an algorithmic solution. In general, the grabbing of two images and the determination of the movement vector seems to be practical. A further issue is the hardware platform, you will use in your encoders. If you already use FPGAs, it might be an advantage. If you see a good base for your product, please contact us. Thanks in advance.
