The LFG -4 is a 4-channel frame grabber that accepts up to 16 analog video sources and can capture full resolution and frame rates from up to 4 sources simultaneously. The LFG -4 supports a 64-bit/66MHz PCI bus and can also be used in a standard 32-bit/ 33MHz PCI system to maintain compatibility. Supported video formats include PAL , NTSC , CCIR and RS-170 from Composite and S-Video sources. For embedded applications on the 32-bit/33MHz bus, a Compact PCI board comes with PC/104-Plus and PMC form factors for the standard LFG range. ACTIVE SILICON, LTD . Uxbridge , UK .
The SZ stereo microscope range?consisting of models SZ51, SZ61 and SZX7?is based on an integrated LED source within the strand. Dimmer-controlled lighting is delivered from a strand less than 25mm high, facilitating the positioning of specimens on the stage. Fiber optic illumination is also available, mounted on the standard frame. The light source attaches to the back of each microscope, with the fiber optic guide entering the strand so that the entire system allows free access around the specimen area. Also available, for specialist imaging applications, is a computer-controlled multi-segment LED ring illumination system, programmable to create frequency-controllable strobe and flash illumination.
