Neon-DIF Frame Grabber is BitFlow’s Upgrade Solution to Older Machine Vision Systems Running Differential Cameras
Older machine vision systems are difficult and costly to upgrade, especially those based on RS422 and low-voltage differential signaling (LVDS) type interfaces. Incompatible with most modern frame grabbers, these legacy differential systems can now be brought up to speed using the BitFlow Neon-DIF differential frame grabber. Designed on the latest PCI Express (PCIe) platform, the Neon-DIF will upgrade an older differential system to acquire images up to 32 bits at 85 MHz from an existing LVDS camera, providing greater control, plus the convenience of running on Windows 10 or Linux OS.

pco.dicam C8 – 8 channel intensified sCMOS technology for nano second ultra speed challenges
For imaging demands far beyond the capabilities of conventional CMOS high speed cameras, the pco.dicam C8 combines unrivaled gating performance of high end image intensifiers with the sensitivity, dynamic and resolution of sCMOS sensors.
Based on the well established optical design of the pco.dicam C4, the light of a single optical input is equally distributed and guided to 8 connected intensified channels. This unique set-up allows e.g. the acquisition of 8 images with 4ns exposure time “back to back” within 32ns or alternatively 16 images with 20ns exposure time within 640ns. Read more ›
