The X64-CL Express is a Camera Link frame grabber that is based on the PCI Express x1 interface – next generation bus interface technology for the host PCs. PCI-Express is a serial digital interface technology that is specifically designed to offer dedicated bandwidth to each plug-in device while reducing the PCB design complexity. The X64-CL Express supports up to two independent Base or one Medium Camera Link™ color and/or monochrome cameras. Its low cost, combined with its ability to reformat input data from multi-tap area and linescan cameras in addition to its onboard FPGA based processing (including Bayer decoding and real-time shading correction) makes the X64-CL Express an ideal solution to a wide variety of cost-sensitive applications where flexibility, performance and reliability cannot be compromised.
When combined with a compatible Teledyne DALSA frame grabber, standard Sapera Processing run-time licenses are offered at no additional charge. Sapera Processing is at the heart of Sapera Vision Software, delivering a suite of image processing and analysis functions. These functions include over 400 image processing primitives, barcode tools, pattern matching tools (both area-based and edge-based), OCR, color and blob analysis, measurement, and calibration tools for perspective and lens correction. The standard tools run-time license includes access to image processing functions, area based (normalized correlation based) template matching tools, blob analysis, and lens correction tools.
