    Aexeon LT Description

    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.
