Please note that this product is EOL and should not be used for new projects.  For the replacement frame grabber, please use the Axion 1xB

Simplify your industrial, medical, or semiconductor imaging application with BitFlow’s Neon-CLB, the easiest to use and most reliable Base/PoCL Camera Link frame grabber available anywhere. The Neon-CLB captures images at the camera’s highest frame/data rate, with precision image acquisition suitable for the most demanding applications.

The Neon-CLB is designed for the OEM customer looking for the performance of the PCI Express bus, BitFlow’s famous industrial quality, and one of the lowest price points in the industry. The Neon-CLB can acquire from ALL Base CL cameras and has enough industrial I/O to handle even the most complicated synchronization tasks.

Adding the Neon-CLB to your application is simple with our SDK, which supports both 32-bit and 64-bit operating systems. The SDK provides high-level APIs for sophisticated buffer management and low-level direct access to the board for speedy custom control.

If you need the simplest, most reliable, and best performing Base Camera Link and PoCL frame grabber, call BitFlow today to get our OEM-priced Neon-CLB, BitFlow’s 4th generation of robust, industrial Camera Link imaging products.
