22 January 2012
Point Grey has introduced the U3-PCIE2-2P01 host adapter card. The device is a low-profile PCI Express Gen 2.0 USB 3.0 card that incorporates a Fresco Logic FL1009 Extensible Host Controller Interface (xHCI) chip. The PCIe Gen 2.0 x1 serial link provides data transfer speeds of 5Gb/s, and the FL1009's unique hardware architecture offers excellent performance.
Each card is equipped with two SuperSpeed USB ports, an internal power connector for ensuring reliable power delivery to connected USB 3.0 devices, and both standard and low profile PCIe mounting brackets. Point Grey also offers its own low-level USB 3.0 xHCI driver, which can be optionally used in place of chipset manufacturer drivers.
Diagnostics can be viewed using the Point Grey FlyCapture image acquisition and camera control SDK. The U3-PCIE2-2P01 is compatible with all Point Grey USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 cameras, as well as third-party USB devices.
