Domino Melody : Analog image acquisition boards with perfect digital quality
Domino Melody : Analog image acquisition boards with perfect digital quality

*Patent pending

The Domino Melody is a high-quality and cost-effective acquisition board for industrial monochrome single-tap analog cameras. It also supports top-notch cameras such as dual and triple-speed. It benefits from the D3 Technology* offering to cost-sensitive applications the advantages of a perfect digital image. This frame grabber is an ideal solution for single-camera applications inspecting fast moving objects.

  • New Domino series general features
  • One single-tap camera
  • 10-bit 40 MHz A/D converters
  • 16-Mbyte frame buffer
  • PCI bus 32-bit, 33 MHz, 3V or 5V signaling
  • Trigger, strobe I/O and two enhanced I/O lines

Camera support
The Domino Melody supports all kinds of area-scan single-tap analog cameras.
As a unique feature the Domino Melody has strictly no jumpers. Even the 75-ohm termination resistor is a software selectable feature.

Camera and I/O connectors

With the Domino Melody the user benefits from internal and external video, power and system connectors.

Bracket connectors:

  • one HD15 video connector
  • one RJ45 system connector

Camera and I/O connectors

Internal connectors:

  • one 10-pin header video connector
  • one 10-pin header system connector
  • one Molex 4-pin connector for camera power supply

10-bit 40 MHz A/D converter
The Domino Melody is equipped with a high-accuracy 10-bit A/D converter. The sampling rate rises up to 40 MHz. This Domino frame grabber offers one 10-bit input look-up table and a programmable input filter. The controls of the gain and offset are freely programmable.

Form factors
The Domino Melody has a small PCB size corresponding to the Low Profile form factor. It is delivered with two brackets, allowing users to install the board in either a low profile small standard PC or in a conventional larger PC. The Low Profile computers are smaller than standard PCs, saving space, which is so important for industrial applications.

Trigger, strobe, enhanced I/O lines
In order to facilitate the integration of the board into the application system, the new Domino boards offer digital I/O lines configurable for general purpose control.

With the Domino Melody, the user benefits from:

  • one opto-isolated output line for safe control of external equipment
  • one differential input line for high-speed, robust and flexible control from external equipment
  • two digital TTL I/O lines for general purpose control
