  Virtually ALL Full, Medium, & Base Camera Link Cameras Supports Camera's Maximum Resolution Supports Camera's Maximum Frame Rate Any Optimzed for camera link cameras listed in PIXCI Selection Guide .

The chart lists high-performance cameras that showcase the PIXCI® E4TX2 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® E4TX2 is primarily designed to support high performance cameras, but it also works with virtually ALL camera link cameras.

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