Teledyne DALSA’s Xtium2 for the PCIe Gen3 platform embarks as the company’s next generation high-performance family of frame grabbers. The family starts two frame grabber boards featuring AIA’s Camera Link HS interface: the Xtium2-CLHS PX8 and Xtium2-CLHS FX8. The series will also provide support to upcoming and existing interfaces like CoaXPress (ver 2.0) and Camera Link.
The Xtium2-CLHS PX8 features seven lanes operating at 10 Gb/s using CLHS X-Protocol and can deliver host transfer bandwidth more than 6.8 GB/s. It supports a CX4 connector that is Active Optical Cables (AOC) ready. The AOC cables use fiber cable to deliver cable lengths greater than 15 meters.
The Xtium2-CLHS FX8 supports up to four bidirectional SPF+ modules to deliver up to 4.0 GB/s of image acquisition and host transfer speeds of up to 6.8 GB/s. The low-cost SPF+ module and fiber optic cables help extend cable lengths to 100 meters. In addition, the Xtium2-CLHS FX8 can support multiple independent CLHS cameras.
