EDT (Engineering Design Team, Inc.) designs and manufactures low-cost, high-performance Camera Link® frame grabbers, simulators, and fiber-optic extenders (for tens to thousands of meters, depending on transceivers). We developed the first, and still the best, reliable long-range extenders. Our products work with desktops, workstations, and embedded systems running multiple camera models and modes (base through 80-bit), form factors (PCIe, PCI, PMC, cPCI), and operating systems (Windows, Linux). All products include free, cross-platform API and SDK, with excellent engineer-to-engineer support available.

The VisionLink F1 is a low-cost, 1-lane PCI Express framegrabber that supports all base mode Camera Link cameras from 20-85 MHz. The VisionLink F4 is a 4-lane version, supporting medium and full mode cameras with bandwidth to spare, using onboard memory and DMA speeds exceeding the maximum Camera Link bandwidth of 850MB/sec.

Both boards support up to 85MHz camera clock speeds on PCIe Gen2 and 3, and can be ordered with normal or half-height backplanes to fit in standard or low-profile systems. For details see the datasheet or contact us.
