Teledyne DALSA's TurboDrive breaks through the GigE Vision Speed Barrier

WATERLOO, Canada – June 25, 2015 –Teledyne DALSA, a Teledyne Technologies company and global leader in machine vision, today announced its latest innovation, TurboDrive™.

TurboDrive is a proprietary and patent-pending data encoding technology that allows select Teledyne DALSA GigE Vision cameras to achieve breakthrough speeds, increasing throughput by as much as 150% while retaining 100% image data.

Defying the GigE bandwidth limitation, TurboDrive enables cameras to transmit 100% of image information at a rate exceeding the constraints of gigabit Ethernet. TurboDrive uses image entropy based encoding to model pixel information with no loss of information. This enables faster data transmission on the link as each pixel is comprised of fewer bits for encoding.

“We’re pleased to deliver an innovative speed advantage to customers who need to push beyond the current GigE bandwidth limitations with no loss of data,” commented Mark Butler, Product Marketing Manager for Teledyne DALSA, “It’s available now in our low-cost Linea line scan cameras, and will continue in future area cameras set to launch in the fall.”
