Optimzed for camera link cameras listed in PIXCI Selection Guide. 700 MB/sec Max. Data Rate.

The chart lists high-performance cameras that showcase the PIXCI® E4 board's capability to transfer massive amounts of image data which translates into the ability to capture high resolutions at comparatively fast frame rates. The PIXCI® E4 is primarily designed to support high performance cameras, but it also works with virtually ALL camera link cameras with a bandwidth requirement of 700 MB/second or less.

Please visit the PIXCI Selection Guide for a comprehensive listing of supported cameras.
