In June 2011, National Instruments (NI) announced the NI PXIe-1435 high performance camera link frame grabber for engineers.
Features and USP: The NI PXIe-1435 is claimed to be the industry’s highest throughput PXI frame grabber and can acquire from all camera link camera configurations, including 10 tap extended full, with up to 850 MBs of throughput. Engineers can power cameras through power over camera link (PoCL) enabled cables, eliminating the need for additional wires in deployment environments. The frame grabber also offers 512 MB of DDR2 onboard acquisition memory for added reliability in transferring large images without fear of data overflow. The frame grabber can also incorporate the synchronisation, timing, data streaming and processing capabilities of the PXI Express specification, and supports image processing on complementary field programmable gate array (FPGA) boards to further boost system performance.
