Camera Link is a communication interface for
vision applications. The interface extends the base technology
of Channel Link to provide a specification more useful for vision
For years, the scientific and industrial digital video
market has lacked a standard method of communication. Both frame
grabber and camera manufacturers developed products with different
connectors, making cable production difficult for manufacturer
and very confusing for consumers. A connectivity standard between
digital cameras and frame grabbers is long overdue and will become
even more necessary as data rates continue to increase.
Increasingly diverse cameras and advanced signal and
data transmissions have made a connectivity standard like Camera
Link a necessity. The Camera Link interface will reduce support
time, as well as the cost of that support. The standard cable
will be able to handle the increased signal speeds, and the cable
assembly will allow customers to reduce their costs through volume
CameraLink has been developed by multiple cameras
and board manufacturers including Euresys.
See our Camera Link Module for the EureCard GrabLink Value, the
two EureCard frame grabbers supporting this new standard.
