Emergent Vision announced the 25GigE Hermes PH-25-Quad and 10GigE Theia PT-10-Quad network interface cards (NICs). Both quad-port PCIe Gen3 x16 smart NICs feature a real-time, front-panel 5V TTL trigger input and support for GigE Vision Streaming Protocol (GVSP), Windows and Linux operating systems, GPUDirect, and camera multiplexing with switches. Both are not limited to a single video stream but can handle multiple streams depending on the device’s resources. The card targets applications requiring accurate camera synchronization in setups without switches where cameras are spaced at distances suitable for fiber.
The optoNCDT 1760-1000 long-range laser sensor by Micro-Epsilon also measures at distances of up to 2m with up to 7.5kHz.
