Munich, Germany - The compact MSMG104EX PC/104-Express module is equipped with four BT878 frame grabbers with 4-channel video multiplexer, a PCIe/PCI bridge and 16 TTL Inputs/Outputs. The frame grabber supports common image formats like PAL and NTSC. Software supports toggling between both formats.
Frame Grabber features high bandwidth and many channels
The bandwidth for PAL is 4x25 frames/sec and for NTSC 4x30 frames/sec. The maximal transfer rate is 133Mbyte/s. The video cameras are connected by SMA coaxial connectors which guarantee a high mechanical robustness thanks to bolted connection. Standard pass-through connectors allow the board to be used either above or below other PC/104 modules. It is connected to the PCI Express bus via one lane. Included in delivery are drivers for Windows or Linux and optional demo software for display and storage of 16 video streams.
The MSMG104EX has dimensions of 90mm x 96mm x 17mm (W x L x H) and a weight of 120grams. It requires a 5V/3.3V power supply and operates within the standard temperature range of "25°C to +50°C. The MTBF (mean time between failures) is specified with over 100,000 hours. Typical applications are security and video surveillance, image recording (digitizing), and image evaluation, that have to meet highest demands in terms of bandwidth and number of channels.
