  • Based on PCI express bus interface
  • Three different interface technologies:
    • CoaXPress
    • CameraLink
    • CameraLink HS
  • DMA1800 and DMA3600 technology (data transfer bandwidth of 1.8 GBytes/s and 3.6 GByte/s)
  • Up to 2GB on-board memory
  • Available as image acquisition and processing card (A series and V series)
  • Supports long cable lengths
  • Built-in power supply for cameras
  • Low latency for precise triggering capability and feedback channels to camera
  • Processing of sensor data on vision processors
  • Preprocessing or pre-analysis of image data eases the load on the host CPU
  • Supports Common Vision Blox (CVB)

Reasons for choosing Silicon Software microEnable 5

You want to reduce system costs

On-board preprocessing leads to easing the load on the host CPU. Another interesting feature is the capability of capturing the data of four cameras with a single frame grabber.

Your benefits:

  • You save costs on technical infrastructure, as fewer components are required.
  • You can reduce the number of required frame grabbers.

You need a highly individual hardware layout

Using the powerful Visual Applets software ensures fast and flexible programming of the FPGAs on the Silicon Software frame grabbers. This graphical design environment requires no special hardware programming know-how.

Your benefits:

  • You can save valuable development time for your application and thus gain a competitive advantage over the other market players.
  • As a certified Visual Applets partner STEMMER IMAGING can create individual Visual Applets designs. This allows you to free up resources and focus on your core business.
