NEO-PCE-DIF One LVDS differential camera. Supports up to 32 bits of LVDS data at 85 MHz. Supports up to two tap cameras. x4 PCI Express. Full I/O.


The machine vision industry is constantly advancing: new buses, new interconnect standards, new software standards. Yet many applications do not require cutting edge technology or require "tried and true" standards. Some applications are simply recycling older technology, why throw it out if it still works? For these reasons, BitFlow has engineered the Neon-Dif. We have taken our robust Neon platform and replace the camera link front end with a 32 bit differential interface. In some ways, this board is the best of both worlds, it melds the latest PCIe speed and features with older, but very robust, differential data devices.

Simplify your industrial, medical, or semiconductor imaging application with BitFlow's Neon-Dif, the easiest to use and most reliable differential frame grabber available anywhere. The Neon-Dif captures images at up to the camera's highest frame/data rate, with precision image acquisition suitable for the most demanding applications.

The Neon-Dif is designed for the OEM that needs the performance of the PCI Express bus, a differential interface, and one of the lowest price points in the industry. The target market are applications where the current frame grabber is no longer available but the camera and application is still important. Another niche that this product fills is differential applications where the PC needs upgrading, but the frame grabber has a PCI interface. Motherboards with PCI slots are getting harder and harder to find. Finally, customers that want to port their application to 64-bit Windows are finding that their differential frame grabbers are not supported on newer operating systems. The Neon-Dif can handle all of these situations.

The Neon-Dif is not just for legacy situations, however. There are still a tremendous number of devices that output differential data, they may not even be cameras. The Neon-Dif, can acquire from just about anything, and efficiently DMA the data into host memory.

Adding the Neon-Dif to your application is simple with our SDK, which supports both 32-bit and 64-bit operating systems. The SDK provides high level APIs for sophisticated buffer management and low-level direct access to the board for speedy custom control.
