Aexeon LT

  • PCI Express Formats
  • Fits Low-Profile Installations
  • Single Composite and S-Video Input
  • Single I/O Trigger

Aexeon LT is a low-profile video acquisition board for standard definition analog cameras. Available in either PCI or PCI Express formats, Aexeon LT incorporates a digital media processor and on-board frame buffer for reliable capture. Aexeon LT supports both composite and S-Video camera inputs and digitizes in either square pixel or CCIR-601 formats.

PCI Express Support
Aexeon LT can be ordered in either PCI or PCI Express system interfaces allowing for system compatibility well into the future. PCI Express is the high-performance, next-generation interconnect that increases bandwidth, scalability, and reliability.

Low-Profile Board Support
Aexeon LT supports the low-profile le PCI form factor standard for space-constrained system installations. Aexeon LT can be ordered with either a standard PCI bracket for full-height system installs or with a low-profile le bracket.

Bus-Mastering Performance
Aexeon LT's high speed bus-mastering capability with scatter gather support delivers realtime video data to system or display memory simultaneously, without intervention from the host CPU. Video data formatting and resolution is independent between streams, allowing for maximum bandwidth flexibility.

Digital Video Processor
By incorporating an on-board video processor, Aexeon enables maximum flexibility in handling challenging application requirements. Equipped with a 32 MB SDRAM frame buffer, the video processor provides video scaling, pixel formatting, interrupt support, hardware overlay, real-time video processing, and video output functionality.

High-Quality Video Capture
Aexeon LT provides high-quality 10-bit capture from up to 3 composite or 1 S-Video video sources in NTSC or PAL format. Video can be captured and stored in either square pixel or CCIR-601 resolutions, and can be scaled to any arbitrary size.

Camera Control
Aexeon LT has a single I/O trigger for camera triggering. The trigger can be programmed as either an input trigger or an output trigger.

dVeloper Foundation Software Developers Kit
dVeloper is a comprehensive software developers kit that supports all dPict Imaging products, allowing for easy porting to new hardware. dVeloper is royalty free and runs under Microsoft Windows 10, 8, 7, Vista, and XP operating systems. Source code samples and complete documentation are included in Visual C, C#, and Visual Basic .NET to provide insight to various hardware functions. Samples include video-in-a-window, overlay, video buffering, camera control, and more.

dPiction Capture Application
dPiction is a viewing and capture application for Windows® systems that is included free with any PCI or PCI Express board purchase. It supports video configuration, viewing, and capture for dPict Imaging frame grabbers.
