High-speed imaging: The benefits of 10, 25, 50, and 100GigE Vision
With demand for high-speed solutions driving machine vision applications, manufacturers have many choices when it comes to components. Frame grabbers are one option. However, by making changes at the driver level — alongside existing high-speed network card technologies — it is possible to achieve 100GigE speeds and beyond with equal performance and lower costs than frame grabber–based technologies. The following presents a brief timeline of GigE Vision cameras; details, advantages, and benefits of the interface; and information on using 10GigE up to 100GigE to stay on the leading edge of machine vision solutions in manufacturing and beyond.
