Adlink PCIe-GIE62

Adlink Technology Inc. has released the PCIe-GIE62, a PCIe GigE Vision frame grabber designed specifically for alignment, measurement and identification uses in a variety of vision applications. The PCIe-GIE62 fully utilizes the bandwidth of a PCIe x4 lane to support up to 1,000Mbit/s image acquisition rates and to provide two independent GbE ports to connect to multiple GigE Vision cameras. The PCIe-GIE62 further improves performance by supporting "Jumbo Frames"larger 9Kbyte data packets over the 1.5Kbyte standardto reduce interrupts generated by incoming packets.

The PCIe-GIE62 is Adlink's first card based on the GigE Vision open standard, which was defined in 2006 by the Automated Imaging Association (AIA). This standard allows industrial cameras to communicate via the GbE standard to provide increased data rates of up to 1,000Mbit/s, longer cable distances of up to 100m, and lower cabling costs over other transmission standards for vision applications.

The PCI-GIE62 is also suited for automation applications by providing two of each isolated TTL digital inputs, outputs and programmable trigger output pulses to connect to external devices such as position sensors and strobe lighting. Drivers and APIs for custom applications are currently available for both Microsoft Windows XP and Microsoft Windows Vista.

"The PCIe-GIE62 presents Adlink's continuing effort in digital imaging in machine vision by providing a variety of the high-performance PCIe frame grabbers for IEEE 1394.b, CameraLink and now GigE Vision interfaces," said Ethan Huang, senior director for measurement and automation products at Adlink Technology.
