Low Cost PCI Express x1 Frame Grabber
for Camera Link Cameras
The PIXCI® EL1 frame grabber supports Full, Medium, and
Base configuration Camera Link cameras. Compatible with the
PCI Express x1 (by one) bus, the EL1 frame grabber interfaces to
more than 100 of the newest, most advanced, highest bandwidth
machine vision cameras available.
The PIXCI EL1 offers:
• Up to 204 Megabyte per second (sustained) data transfer to the
host computer.
• 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.
• Low price – only $895.00 with XCAP-Lite imaging program.
The PIXCI EL1 is a plug-n-play frame grabber requiring no
hardware setup or adjustment. Install the board, load the
software, connect the camera, and begin to capture images.
Upon startup, the XCAP imaging program reads a camera
identification chip on the PIXCI EL1 frame grabber, allowing
XCAP to load the appropriate video format and display the
camera’s dedicated Capture & Adjust Dialog.

Interfaces to almost any camera link camera. The PIXCI EL1
frame grabber requires a x1 or wider PCI Express slot. Few high
bandwidth cameras exceed the 204 MB/sec maximum throughput
of the PIXCI EL1 board. Support for higher bandwidth cameras
is available with the PIXCI E4 frame grabber, which transfers
700 MB/sec on a x4 PCI Express slot.
The XCAP imaging program supports up to eight PIXCI EL1
frame grabbers making it possible to use multiple Full,
Medium, or Base configuration Camera Link cameras simultaneously. The XCAP-Std program allows simultaneous use of
the PIXCI EL1 with other EPIX® frame grabbers supporting
different camera models, either Camera Link compatible or not.
XCAP-Std also offers video-to-disk capture, subject to the
performance of the host computer’s RAID array.
