The PIXCIŽ CL1 Camera Link board accepts data from a Camera Link camera while providing exposure, reset, and serial control. The PIXCIŽ CL1 capture and control board reduces the cost of digital imaging systems by reducing the cost of cabling and integrated circuits for interfacing a camera to a computer. The PIXCIŽ CL1 has a single 26 pin connector and supports a camera with the Base configuration of the Camera Link specification. The PIXCIŽ CL1 transfers video data to the PCI bus at up to 100 megabytes per second sustained rates as a PCI bus master. The PIXCIŽ CL1 operates in a 32 bit, 33 MHz PCI bus slot.
