Applications

xiB Advantages for High speed and High resolution Applications

  • Performance 17x times faster than USB 3.0, 7x than 10GigE and even faster than Camera Link HS or CoaXPress
  • Robustness - durable full metal jacket, no wobbly cheap sheet covers
  • Precision - high resolution (up to 50Mpix) Global shutter sensors offer quality without smear
  • Removability - for applications that require detached camera head across 300m
  • Overall efficiency - no interface protocols that would consume substantial amount of CPU
  • Adjustability - modular design allows customization for special needs and mounting holes on all available sides of camera for best possible alignment of sensor
  • Compactness periscopic design simplifies multi camera arrangements for panorama and 360 degree shooting
  • Standard PCIe over Cable interface – allows variety of standard PCIe cables and adapters
  • Purity - DMA, direct memory access omitting frame grabbers and providing lower latencies
