PCI Express Frame Grabber for Camera Link

PC_EYE/CL is a frame grabber board for Camera Link cameras, interfacing theses high-performance digital image sources to PCI Express via a x4 interface. This makes transfer rates in the Gigabytes-per-second range possible, much more than what was feasible with standard PCI interfaces.

The Camera Link interface supports all profiles of the standard: base, medium, and full. Camera Link offers a maximum bandwidth of all digital cameras and simplifies the connection of various cameras to the frame grabber.
