BitFlow is now offering the Karbon CL4-SP, a single-camera version of its Karbon-CL, designed to handle the latest 80-bit 85MHz cameras. These are the fastest cameras supported by the Camera Link standard.
Adaptable with its highly configurable acquisition engine, the Karbon CL4-SP frame grabber fits OEM environments, as well as scientific research labs. Applications include machine vision, medical imaging, intelligent transportation systems, high-definition graphics, and quality control.
BitFlow FlowThru technology, incorporated into the Karbon CL4-SP, eliminates the need for on-board frame buffers, even with the fastest Camera Link cameras. The frame grabber is comprised of a user-programmable Video Pipeline, along with a flexible Camera Control Unit, high-speed video FIFOs, and a scatter/gather DMA engine with burst rates up to 2Gb/s. Its architecture allows the Karbon CL4-SP to control, acquire, reformat and transfer video data directly into the user's application at camera speeds with zero latency or CPU usage.
