Matrox Solios eA/XA
Frame grabbers
Matrox Solios eA/XA
Cost-effective analog frame grabber with optional customizable FPGA-based processing core.
Cost-optimized and value-packed design
The Matrox Solios eA/XA frame grabber strikes a perfect balance between
functionality and cost. Its high fidelity analog acquisition capabilities and highperformance PCI Express® (PCIe™) or PCI-X® bus interface make the Matrox
Solios eA/XA a good match for mainstream cameras. An optional customizable
FPGA-based processing core is available to accelerate or offload image processing
tasks. The Matrox Solios eA/XA is the right choice for cost sensitive applications.
High fidelity analog acquisition
Matrox Solios eA/XA has up to four completely independent inputs for high

up to four fully independent inputs
10-bit A/D converters
simultaneously acquire from two dual-output video sources or one RGB video
source. Each input of the Matrox Solios eA/XA features circuitry to monitor the
presence of a video (synchronization) signal and status of the phase-locked
loop. The Matrox Solios eA/XA can also transparently convert between

Four lane (x4) PCIe™ and PCI-X® are the interfaces used to connect to the host
PC on the Matrox Solios eA and Matrox Solios XA boards respectively. PCIe™
is the follow-on to conventional PCI and PCI-X®. Version 1.x of PCIe™ operates at
2.5 GHz to deliver a peak bandwidth of 1GB/sec over a x4 implementation. PCI-X®
is a high-performance backwards-compatible enhancement to conventional PCI.
Version 1.0a of PCI-X® specifies a 64-bit physical connection running at speeds
of up to 133 MHz resulting in a peak bandwidth of up to 1 GB per second.
