PIXCI® E4
PCI Express x4 Frame Grabber
For High Bandwidth Camera Link Cameras
The PIXCI® E4 is a plug-n-play frame grabber. Load the
software, connect the camera, and begin to capture images.
In addition to supporting high bandwidth cameras, the
PIXCI E4 supports more than 100 Full, Medium, and Base
configuration Camera Link cameras with lower bandwidth
requirements.
The PIXCI E4 offers:
• 700 Megabyte per second sustained data transfer to
PCI Express x4 bus.
• Camera specific controls – exposure, bit depth, gain,
frame rate, etc.
• Camera operation in free-run mode for maximum
frame rate sequence capture.
• Camera operation in control (trigger) mode.
• $1595.00 with XCAP-Lite imaging program.
High Bandwidth Camera Link Frame Grabber
PCI Express x4 Bus Compatible
1 Gbyte/sec Burst Transfer
Up to 700 Mbyte/sec Sustained Data Transfer
Line Scan or Area Scan
Camera Frame Rate Sequence Capture
Triggered Image Sequence Capture
64-Bit Memory Addressing
Camera Integration & Async Reset Control
Integration From Microseconds to Minutes
Images Stored in Motherboard Memory or
RAID Array

64-bit memory addressing allows video rate sequence
capture into gigabytes of motherboard memory for longer
durations than possible with 32 bit addressing – which is
limited to 4 gigabytes.
Multiple PIXCI E4 boards can be installed in the same
computer and can support different cameras, either area
scan or line scan, monochrome or color, and can have
different resolutions, frame rates, and bit depths.

700 MB/sec Max Data Rate
The chart lists high-performance cameras that showcase the PIXCI E4 board’s
capability to transfer massive amounts of image data – which translates into the
ability to capture high resolutions at comparatively fast frame rates. The PIXCI E4 is
primarily designed to support high performance cameras, but it also works with
virtually ALL camera link cameras with a bandwidth requirement of 700 MB/second
or less.
Please visit the PIXCI Selection Guide on the EPIX web site (www.epixinc.com) for a
comprehensive listing of supported cameras.
Contact EPIX, Inc., or your authorized EPIX, Inc. distributor, if your camera isn’t
already listed.
