Matrox 4Sight GPm overview

The Matrox 4Sight GPm family consists of two members: Matrox 4Sight GPm (Ivy Bridge) and Matrox 4Sight GPm (Bay Trail). They are both self-contained units (computers) that integrate image capture, storage, processing, display, and Gigabit Ethernet networking capabilities with support for Power over Ethernet (PoE). They support GigE Vision and USB3 Vision capture, as well as Industrial communication using the PROFINET, EtherNet/IP, or Modbus/TCP industrial protocol. To support PROFINET communication, both version of Matrox 4Sight GPm include a Matrox PROFINET Engine. They also have an Advanced I/O Engine; the engine provides use of 16 optically-isolated digital auxiliary I/O signals (8 inputs and 8 outputs), and includes I/O command lists, timers, quadrature decoders, and user outputs.
