The PIXCI® EB1 is a low cost, low profile Base CameraLink frame grabber. The PIXCI® EB1 includes EPIX’ XCAP-Lite software and is ready to run with camera specific, integrated, controls for most popular Camera Link cameras and easy-to-use generic configuration controls for other Camera Link cameras. The PIXCI EB1 uses a PCI Express x1 slot to support transfer rates to 2.5 Gbit/sec.
When the speed of image capture and low latency are important, the PIXCI® EB1 gets the job done without waiting for a network to respond to an image transfer request. The PIXCI® EB1 transfers twice as fast as gigabit Ethernet, three times faster than Firewire, and ten times faster than USB 2.0. Images are available in host computer memory within one line time after leaving the camera.
The PIXCI EB1 with XCAP offers:
- 2.5 Gbit/sec burst data transfer rate to x1 PCI Express bus.
- Camera Control Dialogs for exposure, bit depth, gain, frame rate, etc.
- Cameras in free-run mode for maximum frame rate sequence capture.
- Cameras in control mode for triggered image capture.
- Operation under Windows or Linux - 32 or 64-bit
The PIXCI EB1 is a plug-n-play frame grabber requiring no hardware setup or adjustment. Load the software, install the board, connect the cameras, and begin to capture images.
The XCAP imaging program supports up to eight PIXCI® EB1 frame grabbers making it possible to use multiple Base configuration Camera Link cameras simultaneously. The XCAP-Std program allows simultaneous use of the PIXCI® EB1 with other EPIX® frame grabbers supporting different camera models, either Camera Link compatible or not. XCAP-Std also offers video-to-disk capture, subject to the performance of the host computer's RAID array.
The PIXCI EB1 is available with a full height or low profile panel. The full height version can be ordered with or without the DB9 remote connector installed. With the low profile panel, an extra slot is required to bring out the DB9 remote connector.
Versions of the PIXCI EB1 are available preset for many specific camera models. Please request information on these if you have a particular camera you plan to use.
