Komodo – CLHS Frame Grabber

Komodo CLHS Frame Grabber Overview

Komodo CLHS is a high performance Camera Link HS Frame Grabber supporting CLHS X Protocol (10G)standard. The Komodo-CLHS is capable of receiving video streams using four SFP+ 10GigE transceivers and a single QSFP+ 40GigE optical interface. Each link supports standard X Protocol bitrates up to 10 Gbps. The board offers a flexible DDR3 memory system with up to 144 Gb of memory and 128 Gbps throughput. A high speed 8 lane Gen 3.0 PCI express interface allows fast data transfer between optical links and computer memory
This CLHS Frame Grabber is ideally suited for industrial, defense and aerospace Machine Vision Systems and applications.
This product also provides GPIO for machine control signals, such as triggers, shaft encoders, exposure control and general I/O, which can be control aside video stream acquisition.
