PIXCI® SI1 Frame Grabber Brings PCI Express
PIXCI® SI1 with low-profile bracket
The PIXCI SI1 frame grabber allows use of most EPIX’
SILICON VIDEO cameras on the PCI Express bus. Image and
control data are transferred with minimal buffering over any PCI
Express slot for low latency image capture and analysis. With
190 megabyte per second sustained data transfer rates, and
burst transfers at 250 megabytes per second, the PIXCI SI1
captures images over a software-selectable pixel clock range of
25MHz to 70MHz (typical). Higher pixel clock frequencies offer
faster frame rates, shorter exposure times, and cable lengths up
to 8 meters. Lower pixel clock frequencies enable slower frame
rates, longer exposure times, and the use of longer cables.
Bit packing allows more images to be captured to memory or
hard drive. 12-bit images are reduced in size by 25%: 10-bit
images are reduced by 37.5%. The PIXCI SI1 supports 64-bit
memory addressing for writing long-duration image sequences
into terabytes of memory.
TTL trigger and strobe connectors provide for async capture
and flash control. The RJ45 camera cable connector carries
image data, control, and power. The PIXCI SI1 is available
either with a standard bracket or with a low-profile bracket for
low-height computers.

Supported SILICON VIDEO cameras have resolutions of 0.3,
1.3, 3.1, 5.0, 9.1, and 10 megapixels. Area of interest controls
allow reduction of image size for higher frame rates.
The XCAP-Lite imaging program provides board and camera
controls with limited capture and save capabilities. XCAP-Lite is
primarily recommended for custom software development.
Choose the XCAP-Ltd program for convenient sequence
capture, display, and save to as much as 8 gigabytes of memory.
Choose XCAP-Std for maximum capture, display, and save
capabilities combined with extensive processing, measurement,
and analysis (including video-to-disk capture, [subject to the
performance of the computer’s RAID array]). Programmer’s
libraries (XCLIB) and image processing subroutines (PXIPL) are
available for solving the most difficult particle tracking, machine
vision measurement, inspection, image sequence analysis, and
flow analysis tasks. Third party software is also available.
