PCIe-1427 Bit Depth and Tap Configuration Requirements

Updated Jun 6, 2018

Reported In

Hardware

  • PCIe-1427

Driver

  • NI-IMAQ

Issue Details

I am working with an NI PCIe-1427 Base CameraLink frame grabber and regardless of if I am acquiring from my physical camera or from the test image generator, I get the below errors for certain tap and bit-depth combinations.  What are the valid combinations of taps and bit depth for the PCIe-1427?

Solution

The PCIe-1427 only supports CameraLink Base configuration.  As such, below are the only possible tap and bit depth combinations:
 
Number of TapsBit Depth
18
110
112
116
28

Additional Information

If you require combinations beyond what is offered by the PCIe-1427, you will need to look at other CameraLink frame grabbers that are able to do configurations beyond CameraLink Base such as the PCI-1428 or the PCIe-1433.
