The PCIe8 DVa CLS Camera Link simulator can be converted to a PCIe8 framegrabber with a firmware flash. Using an easy interface, a text-based configuration script defines the camera timing to be simulated. The board simulates image data so that applications can be debugged, or tested at system level when a camera is attached.
Images are transmitted via DMA from the host PC: the board has no frame buffer memory. Alternatively, internal counters can be used as the image source.
UART commands can be programmed from the C libraries. Triggering of line and frame are via camera control lines.
PCI Express bus required, 16 or 8 lanes not used for display (or an 8-lane physical slot wired as a 4-lane with reduced maximum performance). Windows and Linux software included, others on request.
This product is discontinued, but is still supported. Next-gen replacement coming soon.
This board supersedes the PCIe8 DV CLS. But is backwards compatible with the legacy board. DV applications will work with the DVa version without modification.
