|Item||Full-Configuration Camera Link NI PCIe-1429|
|Description|| The National Instruments PCIe-1429 is the industrys first PCI Express image acquisition board.With the NI PCIe-1429, you now can acquire images at the highest speeds, resolutions, and bit depths available for Camera Link cameras to perform demanding imaging applications such as synchronized data and image acquisition, fault analysis, and advanced motion tracking.|
In the past, acquiring images at high data rates required devices with banks of expensive onboard memory that could acquire images only for short periods of time, or specialized buses such as the PCI 64/66 or PCI-X, for which standard PC chipsets are not available. With Intels standardization on PCI Express and the NI PCIe-1429 board, you now can acquire at high data rates indefinitely through a standard PC bus.
Camera Link is an industrial high-speed serial data and cabling standard developed by National Instruments, camera vendors, and other image acquisition companies. Created for easy connectivity between the PC and the camera, Camera Link provides simple, flexible cabling for high-speed, high-resolution digital cameras. A Camera Link cable is a slender 26-pin cable with 24-bit data, clock, and enable as well as control signals. You can control camera functionality by asynchronous serial control or LVDS differential lines through a Camera Link cable. • Camera Link comes in three configurations base, medium, and full. The base configuration uses three 8-bit taps, or input channels, to acquire up to 24 bits of data at a rate of 340 MB/s. The full configuration offers eight taps and can acquire images up to 680 MB/s.
Each NI PCIe-1429 image acquisition board includes one trigger line and two Camera Link connectors to work with any base, medium or full configuration Camera Link camera. Additional I/O lines for advanced triggering, pulse-train outputs and isolated DIO also are available with the IMAQ-1000 expansion board. With the four-lane PCI Express configuration of the NI PCIe-1429, engineers and scientists can acquire at the full Camera Link bandwidth of 680 MB/s. In addition, they can synchronize other data acquisition measurements with each acquired image to analyze activities frame by frame in data-intensive applications such as crash tests.
The NI PCIe-1429 is ideal for many industrial, life science, and biomedical imaging applications. For instance, engineers and scientists can use the board to perform fault analysis by setting up a stop trigger to record images before and after an event on the factory floor. They can also use high-speed imaging to perform particle image velocimetry, track the movement intricacies in gait analysis or measure the stimulus responses in heart valves or eye corneas.
