Camera Link is an extremely robust and powerful interface designed for industrial cameras in all performance categories. The bandwidth available with Camera Link can accommodate very small cameras with the size of a sugar cube as well as cameras with several megapixel resolution and often several hundred frames per second speed. Camera Link is currently the recommended standard interface for data rates from 100 MB/s to about 800 MB/s.
Because Camera Link was specifically designed for use with industrial cameras, it can handle large amounts of data easily and securely. All components in a Camera Link solution must meet the Camera Link standard.
Some of the advantages of the Camera Link interface are:
Standardized camera/frame grabber integration with defined connectors, cables, data format, and control signals
Standardized cables - users can take advantage of competitive pricing
Easy handling of all current image data transmission requirements thanks to high data rate capability
