Montreal, Quebec, October 21, 2002 -- Coreco Imaging has introduced the Bandit-II Digital, a monochrome frame grabber with integrated display that lets OEMs take advantage of the improved image quality resulting from using digital
The new frame grabber builds on the success of the Bandit-II series, a new line of VGA frame grabbers integrating flexible acquisition and high-resolution true color display controllers into a single slot PCI or AGP board.
The Bandit-II Digital supports both single and dual tap digital cameras configured in 8, 10 or 12-bit pixel/tap input formats, and high-speed digitization rates of up to 60MHz. The 8-bit/pixel format supports input resolution of 2048 bytes x 2048 lines while the 10 and 12-bit/pixel formats support input resolution of 1024 bytes x 2048 lines YUV. With interrupt-driven, dedicated I/Os, the Bandit-II Digital provides real-time control and ensures reliability in high-speed applications, such as semiconductor, pharmaceutical and general purpose machine vision. An external clock enables highly accurate image acquisition, while flexible external trigger modes allow external process synchronization.
Images acquired by the Bandit-II Digital are transferred in real time to system memory with no CPU usage, freeing the CPU to perform other critical tasks. The frame grabber's onboard VGA can display high-resolution VGA and TV formats simultaneously for increased application flexibility.
Targeted at cost-sensitive machine vision applications requiring display, the Bandit-II product line is comprised of: the Bandit-II RGB (for color applications), the Bandit-II CV (general-purpose VGA frame grabber) and the Bandit-II MV (monochrome frame grabber for machine vision). The Bandit Series product line provides numerous advanced image acquisition and display features making them incomparable, to others in their class.
All Bandit-II frame grabber applications are developed under Windows NT, Windows 2000 and Windows XP using Coreco Imaging's Sapera, WiT or IFC software development libraries. Coreco Imaging's software development tools allow users to develop applications with C DLLs, C++ classes or ActiveX controls on Microsoft Visual C/C++ 6.0 (or higher) or Visual Basic 6.0 (or higher) development platforms.
