(Teledyne DALSA: Waterloo, ON) -- Teledyne DALSA, designer and manufacturer of digital imaging solutions and machine vision technology, will demonstrate its commitment to the new Camera Link HS (CLHS) standard by showcasing CLHS versions of its Falcon2 camera and Xcelera PX8 frame grabber at the AIA Vision Show this week, May 8–10, 2012, in Boston.
The Camera Link HS is a G3 standard (JIIA, EMVA, and AIA). Through the AIA, a 15-member CLHS committee of independent companies is leading the continued development and deployment of the new standard. Updates on the ratification process and details on development requirements can be found on the AIA’s website.
Increasing resolution and faster frame rates have caused cameras for machine vision systems to steadily grow in their need for bandwidth. Camera Link HS is the next-generation interface standard that addresses the needs of all machine vision applications. It is designed from a system point of view, ensuring the ability to create low-cost cameras and frame grabbers while fulfilling the ease of use, flexibility, and data reliability demanded by customers.
Camera Link HS builds on key strengths of Camera Link and adds new features and functions to meet customers’ demands. The standard will be ratified in May 2012 and features the following benefits:
• Low cost solution, off-the-shelf, multivendor components
• Scalable bandwidths from 300 MB/s to 16 GB/s
• Flexible cables
• Reliable data delivery
• Industry supported
• Direct fiber optic conversion possible
“Teledyne DALSA has a long history of leading the industry in the adoption of new communication interfaces,” says Mark Butler, senior product manager at Teledyne DALSA. “We look forward to the upcoming release of CLHS in May as we continue to work with the AIA CLHS committee and other camera and frame-grabber manufacturers to deploy the new interface.”
Teledyne DALSA’s Falcon2 12M camera and the Xcelera PX8, an advanced PCI Express (PCIe) frame grabber, are designed to support the AIA’s newest interface, CLHS. Both products will be demonstrated at this year’s AIA Vision Show in Boston from May 8-10, 2012. Mike Miethig, Teledyne DALSA R&D manager and chair of the AIA CLHS committee, will be on hand to answer questions regarding CLHS technology and Teledyne DALSA’s CLHS products.
