in 1990, Imagenation was built on the belief that the personal computer would one
day supplant specialized hardware in the machine vision market, opening
vast opportunities for low-cost, precision frame grabbers.
Since its first frame
grabber, the Cortex I, Imagenation continues to evolve its product offerings.
With the CX family, Imagenation offered standard ISA format and embedded
systems using PC/104 or STD configurations. The PX family, available in
standard PCI format with PC/104-Plus and CompactPCI versions, broke new
ground for Imagenation by providing full support for high-resolution,
non-interlaced video from progressive scan CCD cameras.
The PXC frame grabber
family provides color or monochrome video capture capabilities at an affordable
price. The PXC family is available in standard PCI, PC/104 and Compact
PCI form factors. Designed for applications with high data rates and resolution
capture capabilities, Imagenation further developed its product line with
the introduction of its first digital frame grabber, PXD1000. The PXD1000
V2 was later released with 4 MB on-board FIFO and an improved method for

Imagenation began a new chapter with its acquisition by CyberOptics Corporation,
Minneapolis, MN (Nasdaq NMS: CYBE). CyberOptics is a recognized worldwide
leader in optical technology and inspection systems designed to improve
yields and throughput in manufacturing processes.
Together they will
provide the marketplace with a more complete technology - CyberOptics
optical- and laser-based technologies, coupled with Imagenations
vision-based frame grabbers and VisionCell solutions.
