The Camera Signal Splitter (CSSGL) may be used in several types of applications. In the most performance-demanding applications - the splitter gives enormous processing speed gain. Splitting of the camera video signal and triggering one of the grabbers only for even, and the other one for odd images - allows to achieve a doubled performance in terms of DPM. Even larger performance gain may be achieved using a cascade of splitters - where complicated and time-consuming tasks happen in numerous frame grabbers (image processing units) at the same time, in a pipeline fed through the CSS. Splitting camera signal may also be useful for a real time optical recognition and sorting tasks. The same video signal is processed and compressed by one frame grabber, transferred to host for archiving. The other, specialized frame grabber - analyzes only a certain small snippet of each document and makes an immediate sorting decision - depending on the snippet content.
The G-Link Piggyback board solution is dedicated for transferring uncompressed images from IE64-HS family boards to host workstation equipped with a BAP PCI transfer accelerator card. Some image processing scenarios require raw (uncompressed) images or losslessly compressed images to be transferred with a high speed exceeding the USB 2.0 bandwidth. In such case the PiggyBack module together with a dedicated accelerator PCI card are able to handle a video stream up to 120 MB/s. In this case the images are completely processed in the IE64-HS and sent to the host through a Piggyback, CAT7 cable and the PCI board. One PCI board can support three PiggyBack equipped IE64HS boards.
