Adlink Technology, Inc. has announced the availability of the PCIe-FIW64, Adlink's first 4-CH PCI Express IEEE1394.b frame grabber designed specifically for digital and high-speed computer-based machine vision applications.

The PCIe-FIW64 provides four IEEE 1394.b (FireWire 800) ports for multiple IEEE 1394.b cameras and supports total data transfer rates up to 3.2Gbps. The PCIe-FIW64 is also designed for multi-channel applications that require external I/O signals and triggering options.

The PCIe-FIW64 supports "power over cable" which allows 1394.b-based cameras to draw power directly through the board and thus reduce wiring. LEDs are located on the front panel to conveniently display the connection status of each channel. Four isolated digital I/Os and four isolated programmable triggers are also provided—the digital I/Os can be used to connect to external devices, (e.g. position sensors) and the programmable trigger output pulses can be used to manage trigger events such as activating strobe lighting. The PCIe-FIW64 further provides dedicated electrostatic discharge protection circuitry to ensure a stable and reliable connection with cameras.

The PCIe-FIW64 is currently available and supports both Microsoft Windows XP and Microsoft Windows Vista operating systems.
