PIXCI® miniH2B-L

Embedded Dual Base Camera Link Frame Grabber

Smallest embedded dual base camera link frame grabber with connectors at the end of flat cables for flexible connector mounting in a chassis. Plugs into a half-length mini PCI express card slot via a flat Samtec cable. PIXCI® miniH2B-L captures digital video from any two base camera link cameras and burst transfers images to the mini PCIe bus at 500 megabytes per second with sustained rates of 409 megabytes per second. Includes software to capture, view, and store images.

The PIXCI® miniH2B-L camera link frame grabber uses internal PCI Express Mini Card slots in small computer systems. Space constraints typically require routing of cables to a side of the case or to a nearby camera. Flexible cables are used to facilitate routing.
