|PCMCIA CameraLink HC-33-II CardBus Frame Grabber
|HC-33-II is a new CardBus CameraLink card. It is designed to use the enhanced features of the
32-bit-PCMCIA PC-Card standard. Busmastering technology in conjunction with new memory
technologies allows highest transfer rates. Image data is transferred on modern notebooks with
rates that exceed 100 MBytes/s.
HC-33-II has two flat 15-pole-connectors on its front side with flexible cables connected to
a standard CameraLink 26-pole-MDR connector. This avoids the disadvantage of a plastic box card
extension outside the cards slot that needs to be connected to a relatively stiff 26-pole
CameraLink cable. HC-33ís flexible cable is easy mountable onto panels and has two color-marked
connectors to be connected to HC-33. Other cable options can be realized on request.
HC-33-II works without double buffering and uses real dual-port memory. For real-time applications
double buffering is not acceptable due to its additional delays. HC-33 allows to take the
image data immediately during the record. Data can (but must not) be analyzed without lowest possible latency.
HC-33-II is the enhanced version of HC-33. HC-33-II uses the newest 6ns dual-port memory
technology and FPGAs for a maximum clock rate to use the CameraLink standard up to its speed limits.
This allows to use the next generation of CameraLink cameras, where the CameraLink Base configuration with a higher clock frequency is preferred instead of more parallel
data lines like defined in Medium or Full CameraLink configuration.

HC-33-II realizes the 26-pole basic CameraLink interface. Multiple cards can be used if more
than one slot is available.
The supplied software allows the definition of files for the camera configuration.
