Camera Link HS
both the market's need and the Q2 2012 release of the new Camera
Link HS (CLHS) standard, Teledyne DALSA is about
to release a CLHS version of their latest Falcon2 12M camera.
The new Falcon2 CLHS will include all of the features and performance
capabilities of the existing Camera Link version but will leverage
the new CLHS interface.
Based on the following performance benchmarks, Falcon 2 CLHS
|• High speed, high resolution
||• 12M, 58 fps, up to 10-bit output
|• Per pixel Flat field correction
||• CLHS interface - CX4 connector,
4 lanes (CLHS C2,4M1,S3)
|• Intuitive graphical camera configuration
||• Fully supported by Sapera Camera
the new CLHS interface. Why choose it?
|Camera Link HS takes the key
strengths of Camera Link and adds new features and functions and the
soon-to-be-released standard will include:
|• Low Cost Solution - Off-the-Shelf,
||• Scalable Bandwidths from 300 MB/s
to 16 GB/s
||• Flexible Cables
|• Reliable Data Delivery
||• Industry supported
||• Direct Fiber Optic Conversion Possible
of CLHS technology on cameras
|CLHS products are said to bring
to their users unparalleled performance with the cost benefit advantages
of leading-edge technology and system flexibility. They are designed
to be a reliable closed loop system able to migrate with advances
in telecommunication technology thus ensuring a long service life
for Camera Link HS products.
|• Camera size is minimized.
||• Power over Camera Link HS is possible.
||• Interface technology can be integrated
|• Lower cost data transmission across
|| • Estimated longevity in the marketplace:
||• Camera Link HS protocol - exceeding
95% video efficiency.

About the current Falcon 2 CL Family series
The new Falcon2 area scan cameras incorporate large resolutions and faster
frame rates enabling high speed image capture with superb spatial resolution.
Built around Teledyne DALSA’s proprietary and most advanced CMOS
technology, the Falcon2 monochrome and colour series includes 4M, 8M and
12M models and delivers (quoted in 8-bit sensor mode, 8-bit 10 tap, CameraLink
Features such as global shutter (which removes unwanted smear and time displacement
artifacts related to rolling shutter CMOS devices) and improved image quality
make these Falcon2 cameras the camera of choice in applications where throughput,
resolution and dynamic range matter.
The latest CMOS sensor has reduced dark noise levels and improved dark offset,
FPN (fixed pattern noise) and PRNU (Pixel Response Non-Uniformity) levels.
In addition, region of interest features will offer opportunities for higher
frame rates and new applications.
The Falcon2 cameras are compliant with GenICam™ and full Camera
Link™ specifications—delivering 8 or 10 bits of data on 8
taps (frame rates are specified at 8 bits) and the M42x1 thread opening
allows the use of lens of choice.
