ADLINK Introduces EOS-4000, First Dual Channel Camera Link(r) Embedded Vision System
Advanced system offers speedy, high-resolution performance in industrial automation and medical imaging applications
October 17, 2013 – San Jose, CA – ADLINK Technology, Inc., a trusted provider of embedded computing products for machine vision, announces the release of its new EOS-4000, the industry’s first compact Camera Link® embedded vision system to feature a powerful 3rd generation Intel® Core™ i7/i5 quad core processor, two independent Power over Camera Link (PoCL) ports, and rich I/O capability. The 3rd generation Intel quad-core processor delivers maximum computing power, and Camera Link connectivity provides image transmission with no CPU loading, making—along with Direct Memory Access (DMA)—the EOS-4000 ideal for speedy and accurate high-resolution performance supporting industrial automation and medical imaging environments.
The EOS-4000 streams raw image data over dedicated point-to-point link topology, with no network latency or protocol overhead, and implements DMA solutions, rearranging data for efficiency. Transmission of image data from cameras to the system memory is executed without utilizing any CPU resources, and the EOS-4000 supports 64-bit memory addressing and RAID technology (dual SATA interface), benefiting vision applications with large address space.
Rich I/O capability includes one encoder input, two trigger inputs, four RS-232/422/485 ports, two USB 3.0 ports, dual storage (two SATA interface and one CFAST slot), an internal USB port, and 1 kbit programmable EEPROM. Easy to integrate and deploy, the EOS-4000 also provides management of copy protection and software license authentication for system development, further accelerating time-to-market.
The EOS-4000 additionally offers 64 optocoupler isolated digital I/Os and supports software configurable digital filter function (0.25 μs-131 ms) securing recognition of input signals carrying noise or chatter – a requirement for demanding industrial environments.
With optional Microsoft® Embedded Standard 7, File-Based Write Filter (FBWF), and thread-safe I/O function, the EOS-4000 provides a stable, secure, high performance software operating environment. The included CamCreator® utility enables setup, configuration, testing, and system debugging with no software programming requirement. Combining increased computing power with multi-channel connectivity and a ready-to-deploy application platform, the EOS-4000 delivers embedded vision ideally suited for high-speed and large image machine vision applications.
