Note 1. The PIXCI® EL1DB Frame Grabber's capture bandwidth is limited by the computer's PCI Express x1 bus. The capture resolution (AOI) must be reduced to allow operation within the limits of the PCI Express x1 bus. (The PCI Express x1 bus has, on most computers, an effective maximum bandwidth of approximately 190 MByte/sec.) Consider a PIXCI® E4DB frame grabber, using the PCI Express x4 bus, as an alternative.

Note 2. The PIXCI® EL1 Frame Grabber's capture bandwidth is limited by the computer's PCI Express x1 bus. The capture resolution (AOI) must be reduced to allow operation within the limits of the PCI Express x1 bus. (The PCI Express x1 bus has, on most computers, an effective maximum bandwidth of approximately 190 MByte/sec.) Consider a PIXCI® E4 frame grabber, using the PCI Express x4 bus, as an alternative.

Note 3. The PIXCI® ECB2 Frame Grabber's capture bandwidth is limited by the computer's ExpressCard/54 bus. The capture resolution (AOI) must be reduced to allow operation within the limits of the ExpressCard/54 bus. (The ExpressCard bus has, on most computers, an effective maximum bandwidth of approximately 190 MByte/sec.)

Note 4. The PIXCI® ECB1-34 Frame Grabber's capture bandwidth is limited by the computer's ExpressCard/34 bus. The capture resolution (AOI) must be reduced to allow operation within the limits of the ExpressCard/34 bus. (The ExpressCard bus has, on most computers, an effective maximum bandwidth of approximately 190 MByte/sec.)

Note 5. The PIXCI® ECB1 Frame Grabber's capture bandwidth is limited by the computer's ExpressCard/54 bus. The capture resolution (AOI) must be reduced to allow operation within the limits of the ExpressCard/54 bus. (The ExpressCard bus has, on most computers, an effective maximum bandwidth of approximately 190 MByte/sec.)

Note 6. The PIXCI® EB1mini Frame Grabber's capture bandwidth is limited by the computer's PCI Express Mini bus. The capture resolution (AOI) must be reduced to allow operation within the limits of the PCI Express Mini bus. (The PCI Express mini bus has, on most computers, an effective maximum bandwidth of approximately 190 MByte/sec.)

Note 7. The PIXCI® EB1-PoCL Frame Grabber's capture bandwidth is limited by the computer's PCI Express x1 bus. The capture resolution (AOI) must be reduced to allow operation within the limits of the PCI Express x1 bus. (The PCI Express x1 bus has, on most computers, an effective maximum bandwidth of approximately 190 MByte/sec.)

Note 8. The PIXCI® EB1 Frame Grabber's capture bandwidth is limited by the computer's PCI Express x1 bus. The capture resolution (AOI) must be reduced to allow operation within the limits of the PCI Express x1 bus.

Note 9. The PIXCI® EC1 Frame Grabber's capture bandwidth is limited by the computer's ExpressCard/54 bus. The capture resolution (AOI) must be reduced to allow operation within the limits of the ExpressCard/54 bus. (The ExpressCard bus has, on most computers, an effective maximum bandwidth of approximately 190 MByte/sec.)

Note 10. The PIXCI® CL2 Frame Grabber's capture bandwidth is limited by the computer's PCI 64 Bit bus. The capture resolution (AOI) must be reduced to allow operation within the limits of the PCI 64 Bit bus. (The 64 bit 66 MHz PCI bus has, on most computers, an effective maximum bandwidth of approximately 480 MByte/sec.)
