. . . then there is an excellent probability that the PIXCI D2X
imaging board provides the computer interface. Visit the PIXCI
Selection Guide1 for a listing of all camera models currently
supported. Contact EPIX if your camera is not yet listed.
HIGHEST IMAGE QUALITY — The PIXCI D2X is designed for scientific and machine vision applications that require the highest
image quality. To insure that precise camera data is always
delivered to the computer, the PIXCI D2X board never compresses, processes or modifies pixel values.
Features:
Line Scan or Area Scan
Single or Dual Channel
8 to 24 Bit Camera Data
Asynchronous Capture Control
Differential Trigger In / Strobe Out
Camera Integration and Reset
Control
32 bit PCI Bus Master
132 MB/s Burst Transfers
Compatible with 32-Bit and
64-Bit PCI Buses
Video Rate Image Sequence
Transfer to Motherboard Memory
MAXIMUM DATA TRANSFER RATE — The PIXCI D2X is a 32 bit PCI
bus master imaging board that transfers camera data to the host
computer at the camera’s data transfer rate. The camera’s pixel
clock controls the data flow from the camera into the PIXCI D2X;
the computer’s PCI bus chip set controls the data flow from the
PIXCI D2X, through the PCI bus, to the computer’s memory (or
other PCI bus target).
COMPATIBILITY GUARANTEED — The product designation “PIXCI
D2X” refers to a series of 300+ custom-configured imaging
boards, each optimized to support one of 300+ specialized digital
cameras. Before a camera is added to the PIXCI Selection
Guide, EPIX tests the camera and designs a camera-specific
interface. Engineers custom program a PIXCI D2X board to
exactly support the camera’s video timing specifications and
electronically tag the board with the camera’s identification code.
A “Capture & Adjust Dialog,” optimized to match the camera’s
capabilities, is added to the XCAP imaging program.
OPTIMIZED IMAGING SYSTEMS — EPIX, Inc. offers complete imaging
systems including cameras, imaging boards, software, cables,
computers, lenses, and lighting. All components of an EPIX
imaging system are configured and tested together, as a system,
so EPIX can guarantee that everything will work properly, the first
time, right out of the box.

CAMERA CONTROL FROM SOFTWARE
SPECIFICATIONS
the camera’s user manual provides all
the information required to control the
camera from XCAP.
Example of Capture & Adjust Dialog
for camera with direct software
control (displayed smaller than
actual size).
If a camera does not allow software
control, then the camera is equiped with
physical controls and switches —
XCAP’s Capture & Adjust Dialog is
designed to appear like the camera’s
control panel using the camera’s
control labels. Camera control simply
requires the operator to set XCAP
control parameters to match the actual
camera’s control positions.
CAPTURE & ADJUST DIALOG:
Most cameras supported by PIXCI D2X
imaging boards allow software control of
exposure, gain, shutter speed, line rate,
and more. The XCAP imaging program
provides a dedicated Capture & Adjust
Dialog for convenient control.
A camera’s Capture & Adjust Dialog is
automatically displayed when the PIXCI
D2X board is “Opened” from the Lite, Ltd,
Std, or Plus versions of the XCAP
program. XCAP knows which menu to
load by reading the camera identificiation
code from the PIXCI D2X board.
The Capture & Adjust Dialog uses
camera control names designated by
the camera manufacturer. As a result,
Synchronized operation of multiple
cameras is available (camera dependent).
RESOLUTION:
8 to 4,096 pixels per line
1 to 4,096 lines per image (area scan)
1 to 65,534 lines per image (line scan)
MAXIMUM FRAME RATE:
Camera Dependent
CONNECTIONS:
1 68-pin (SCSI II) cable receptacle
2 10-pin headers
TRANSFER RATES:
Requires a burst mode PCI
motherboard capable of sustained
transfer rates to motherboard DRAM
equal to or greater than the peak byte
transfer rate of the camera.
DISPLAY - WINDOWS:
Requires a 24 bit per pixel Windows
compatible display system. Display
resolution determined by VGA device
driver.

for camera without direct software
control (displayed smaller than
actual size).
PIXCI D2X VERSATILITY
MULTIPLE BOARDS / MULTIPLE CAMERAS:
All versions of the XCAP program
(except Demo ) recognize all PIXCI
PCI imaging boards, regardless of
model or order code, and offer dedicated control for as many as 8 PIXCI
boards / cameras in one computer.2
The Multiple Devices menu in XCAP
displays each board by the model
name of the camera it supports. Check
Boxes “ ” provide quick and
convenient camera selection.
SIGNAL INPUT & OUTPUT:
EIA RS-644 Drivers & Receivers
or
EIA RS-422 Drivers & Receivers
(Camera dependent)
SOFTWARE COMPATIBILITY:
The PIXCI D2X requires a 32-bit
operating environment. It is compatible with Microsoft Windows XP, 2K,
NT, ME, 98, and 95 as well as 32-bit
DOS. The XCAP Imaging Program is
Windows compatible. XCLIB and
PXIPL developer libraries are available for Windows and DOS. IMAGE
PRO, TWAIN, and LINUX drivers are
available.
EPIX supports development of
custom drivers for other 32-bit
environments (UNIX, Macintosh etc).

BUS REQUIREMENTS:
32 bit, 33 MHz PCI bus master,
3 or 5 volt PCI slot.
1.55 Amps @ +5 Volts
DIMENSIONS:
12.48 cm long by 10.67 cm high
(4.913” x 4.20”) [short slot]
CE / FCC CERTIFICATION:
PIXCI D2X was tested per EMC
directive 89/336/EEC and performed
to class B.
1. PIXCI Selection Guide URL:
http://www.epixinc.com/guide/cameras.htm
2. Most motherboards have neither the PCI
bandwidth nor the 8 expansion slots
needed to take full advantage of this
capability: control of 4 cameras is common.
3. Optional “TTL Module” allows TTL Trigger
IN and TTL Strobe OUT.
