Matrox Solios eCL/XCL-B
Frame grabbers
Matrox Solios eCL/XCL-B
Entry-level Camera Link® frame grabber.
Cost-optimized and value-packed design
The Matrox Solios eCL/XCL-B is a Camera Link® frame grabber for cost sensitive
applications. Its acquisition capabilities and PCI Express® (PCIe™) or PCI-X® bus
interface make the Matrox Solios eCL/XCL-B an excellent match for entry-level
cameras.
Versatile Camera Link® interface
Matrox Solios eCL/XCL-B operates as a single-Base Camera Link® frame grabber
featuring Power over Camera Link® (PoCL) with SafePower. With an acquisition
speed of up to 85 MHz4 and multi-tap support including complete image

Choice of high-performance host bus interfaces
One lane (x1) PCIe™ and PCI-X® are the interfaces used to connect to the host
PC on the Matrox Solios eCL-B and Matrox Solios XCL-B frame grabber boards
respectively. PCIe™ is the follow-on to conventional PCI and PCI-X® whereas
PCI-X® is a backwards-compatible enhancement to conventional PCI. Both the
x1 PCIe™ and PCI-X® implementations offers the right balance of performance
and cost.

Field-proven application development software
Matrox Solios eCL/XCL-B is supported by the Matrox Imaging
Library (MIL), a comprehensive collection of software tools for
developing industrial imaging applications. MIL features
interactive software and programming functions for image
capture, processing, analysis, annotation, display and
archiving. These tools are designed to enhance productivity,
thereby reducing the time and effort required to bring your
solution to market. Refer to the MIL datasheet for more information.
