The PC2-Vision Express frame grabber is a high-performance board whose acquisition circuitry is exceptionally versatile and designed to interface with standard (RS-170 and CCIR), nonstandard (progressive scan), RGB and dual-channel analog cameras.

The PC2-Vision simplifies camera interfacing by offering fully programmable timing coupled with efficient cabling and a variety of trigger, strobe and asynchronous reset options. It features six inputs and high digitization rates, making it an ideal solution for a wide variety of industrial inspection, identification and gauging applications. The PC2-Vision has been engineered within DALSA's Trigger-to-Image Reliability framework to ensure highly reliable and efficient acquisition control throughout the entire image capture sequence.

The PC2-Vision acquires from standard and non-standard monochrome and RGB analog sources. Its A/D converter can digitize up to three synchronized monochrome cameras. Alternatively, simultaneous acquisition is supported through a frame delay mode feature allowing concurrent capture from all six inputs to increase camera interface flexibility.

The PC2-Vision features anti-aliasing filters with cutoff frequency of 6MHz or 12MHz that are software selectable and a filter bypass option. A high accuracy 40MHz triple channel 8-bit analog to digital converter offers gain and offset control to precisely match the video voltage level of the camera.

Host transfers
The PC2-Vision's transfers-to-host are performed via the PCI bus, supports the PCI32 platform and 5V and 3.3V PCI compliant, supporting the widest range of PCs based on the PCI bus architecture.

Minimal CPU involvement is required as the board automatically retrieves each descriptor (from host memory) representing the non-contiguous host buffer.
The board allows transfers to host memory or to display.
