The X64-AN Quad image acquisition board interfaces with up to four independent analog cameras, providing a solution for high-speed multiple-view machine vision applications. PCI-X compatible, it is an extension to the company’s X64 series of frame grabbers. It also provides local image storage and the capability to extract area of interest to streamline image processing. The dedicated I/Os and timer/counter features allow reliable object tracking through various processing stages. In addition, it incorporates a fault-tolerant image synchronization design to automatically detect, report and recover from a lost camera signal to ensure the reliability of all imaging sequences. Other features include support for multiple high-frame rate, high-resolution (mega-pixel) cameras, dedicated on-board frame buffer memory and support for Trigger-to-Image Reliability framework. It is supported by proprietary Sapera LT software for acquisition and control, as well as Sapera Processing software for image processing and analysis, enabling applications to be developed for Windows 2000 and Windows XP.
